    On the PRS pots, they each have a capacitor. I imagine the one on the volume is some kind of treble bleed, but what is the purpose of the one on the TONE pot?

    The one on the tone pot is what actually makes it a tone pot.

    It uses it to shunt treble (send it to ground) instead of bleed it into the signal. It acts as what we would call a 'low pass filter'
