I'm wiring up an Epiphone Les Paul S100 and it need's capacitors. I never wired them before so do I wrap wire around the metal tips sticking out from them and solder or what? Not really sure. Also, I beleive I need .047 but they say 47. Is that the same?
47 nanofarads and .047 microfarads are the same. Need one cap for each tone pot. On end goes to ground and the other end goes to lug 1 I believe.
Ok thanks for the response. I will try and see what happens.
wait sorry i meant lug 2. The cap goes from lug 2 (middle lug) to ground. I dunno what I was thinking.
You can use 1 cap for 2 tones. Look at a stock strat.
The metal legs ARE wire, you can solder directly to them.
