While I agree it is all magical mojo in peoples minds, you have just opened the gates of hell with the believers..It is well known that good capacitors behave all the same. The only criteria is the capacity. If you buy a styroflex capacitor for some cents or max. a dollar or Euro it is more than enough. All the 'vintage' reissues and the like are nothing better than new capacitors. please remember that at that 'good old' times Companies like Gibson or Fender just used capacitors which they were able to get (cheap). There is no 'magic', sorry! Over 30 years of guitar playing and modding leads me to believe only in physics and listening. If somebody would like to buy 'special' capacitors and believes in it, just do so - it is your personal decision. Here is a nice video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=92G-jw4TqS4.
