JA your vids are always fantastic! thanks for sharing, may I ask whats the tonal difference with PAFs between stock pots&cpas and vintage ones ??
Ive tried to buy vintage pots but the 500k ones Ive found were always way too much out of spec (all in the 420-350 range)

The pots & caps gave me a little extra bite that I was looking for.

oh interesting... when I put vintage caps in (but with stock pots) I got a warmer sound, with tones at 10 is like having tones at 8 with stock caps...
