I have a Mexican Strat. I took out the stock pups, too weak and wimpy. I installed Texas Specials and changed the cap to .22. I left the pots at 250k. As I have stated before, I have been offered money by die hard Start fans, and those I have let play it.....drool!

The most common "tone cap" values are 0.015, 0.022, 0.033, and 0.047; each value has one zero to the right of the decimal point, if the value is being expressed in microfarads (µF). "Zero-point-zero-three-three," if that helps any. I think the only place on GuitarNuts.com where you'd see a reference to a (microfarad value) cap without a zero in the "tenths' place would be the 0.33 µF, 400 volt unit used on the string ground as a shock protector. If there's a typo suggesting a "point-three-three" as a tone cap, maybe John A. would like to edit that, if you mention the URL for the page where it is.
