Does anybody know the stock Capacitor that comes with this guitar?

I'm trying to become more familiar with the guitar to decide on upgrades.

2A473J is the number it says on it.

Most are more straight forward, but i'm thinking it's probably 0.047


Thanks.

yep, 0.047uF

the '473' means it's 47nF, 'J' means the tolerance is +/- 5%, and idk what the 2A is... a current rating? :/



Okay so here's my next question.

How did you convert the 47nf to 0.047uf?

because as you stated it's 47nf.

    1uF =  1000nF
   47uF = 47000nF
  4.7uF = 4700nF
 0.47uF = 470nF
0.047uF = 47nF

it's like converting meters to/from kilometers (or, for you yanks, converting kilobytes to/from megabytes)



edit: might as well clarify that 'uF' means microfarads, and 'nf' means nanofarads

Awesome thanks very much.

idk what 2A means but it isnt a current rating. caps arent rated in current. only farad value and voltage.

just had to say that.

caps arent rated in current because they dont actually pass current. They block DC and they only give the illusion of passing AC. And with DC, they still "pass" a pulse of current during the instant the cap is charging.
