I'm curious to know if anyone can identify the manufacturer of the green capacitors used.
I am thinking of changing out the caps to either Sprague Orange Drops 0.022 Bridge and 0.01 Neck or Adiophile grade transparent types as well as Oil and Paper. I'm actually quite happy with the pickups and pots.
Can't tell you exact manufacture of those Green caps, but they are most likely the mylar film caps, you see the dark red ones like that in other guitars.
A good set of PIO or even Orange drops should open up things for you and add some warmth and clarity.
If you look at the way cap leads go from tone pot to outside lug on volume that is considered modern wiring. If you were to connect cap lead to center lug on volume you would have 50's wiring which is a little bit brighter, more open sound.
Running a smaller value cap on the neck is not a bad idea in some cases.
