    Can one of you Classic owners pop open your rear cover and let me know what the cap values are on the tone caps in there? Mine hasn't arrived yet, but I'm ordering some nicer caps, and I cant to get the right ones for it.

    It will be the little flat orange disks in there, and will either be .022 or .047 .

    Thanks!

    Well, its not a Classic, but I put .022 mylars on my SG with the P90s.

    (and phooey to all those high end caps anyway)

    CB-

    I don't go for the $60 Bumblebee caps, but I don't like the flat disks they come with. I really like using the little Sprague Orange Drops, and they're only about $1 each. I've had good luck and good results on several guitars with those.

    I wasn't sure for P-90's to use the humbucker .022's of the .047's that Strats of teles get.

    Holy crap a .022 OD even in 400v is HUGE

    How about a .022 Mallory - at least is gonna fit easier.

    If you want I'll send you two and some spagatti tubing to cover the leads (cloth tubing, very vintage)

    Better yet... send me a SASE (padded) and I'll stuff it and send it back.

    They're not THAT big :) But hey, I'm not one to skip out on a free meal! I'd love some mallorys. Here's the only pic I could find of one of the guitars I used an OD in, it's not bad. :
