    I kinda knew what I was going to pick, as soon as I heard the guitar/rig a little.

    ...but here's where I surprised myself: I thought I'd be reluctantly picking the .04uF and having to explain that on the bridge/middle position, with all the in-between knob settings, and/or with a little gain it would make for my personal choice, expecting it to be dark on the neck in the video (and I think "modern wiring," right?). Well, turns out I liked it best in the clean/neck context of your demo, as well.

    So, more confidently than I anticipated, I vote for the .04 among the choices. :cheers:

    If you play the bridge/middle allot, and you have the guitar wired up for a tone control on the bridge, especially Gibson 50's style, maybe even try some higher values? I think your rig could definitely handle it, if you want some more vocal / throaty bridge sounds.
