After watching some very good Youtube vids on guitar cap comparisons , I have to say that I can only hear the difference between ceramic discs and upgrades . Mylar vs polyester vs polystyrene vs POI differences are beyond my ears thesedays .
I've tried all sorts of constructions . Round core sound flat and indistinct in most Brands except TI , but they're expensive .
Then there's silk wrap , before metal wrapping .......... At the end of the day it's more a case of pickups , amp and the ability to play .
" Burst Believers " is quite daft a title , I have to concur . However , the entire series that I've bought over the years has some darn good photographs amongst it's volumes . Volume III is my favourite . The last volume had too much re-hashed added to new stuff . Gold tops would be a good...

You can ask for potted or unpotted and altered winding . All my stuff over the years got to Australia with no problem and the bubble wrap was fine . Wolfe knows how to pack so that nothing in the box whacks anything else if it's dropped . His freight value is good too . Make sure you order some...
