Post Guitar Mod Question
Hey guys,

I'm doin what every guitarist wants to do with their first guitar.... fix that piece of shit up! Basically I have a Peavey beginner strat from '97 or so, my first electric. Recently, my soloing and playing has been a bit more 'rootsy' so I'm gonna try make it a funk/blues orientated guitar.

Anyway, one of the things I want this baby to do is clean up nicely when the volume is turned down. My JS1000 has a switchable hi-pass filter which upon further research would appear to be a 330pf capacitor wired into a push/pull pot. I don't particularly want it switchable on this mod I'm doing, so I checked out the PGM and JEM wiring and noticed that the same capicitor is just wired into the P/U selector, so it's not switchable.

My question is, do I need to get a specific type of capacitor, or would any type measuring 330pf be ok when wired into my switch? I don't have too much of a clue about electronics. gradually learning.

Don't look down on anyone, unless you are helping them up.
