Hi, if i want to build a strat HSS guitar, does it matter if I only got 0.22uF resistors or MUST it be 0.47uF for the humbucker?

Thanks in Advance
My Gear:

Stagg l320cs
Laney Prism P35 (35watt)
Custom Strat
Aria Steel String acoustic
i'm assuming youre referring to the cap that is attached to the tone pot on the guitar, to which i say, it shouldnt matter as much no. all it does is change how much treble is being cut.
My Gear:
Gibson Faded Flying V
"Dante's Inferno" Iceman
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe 112

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.
1 - uF is a unit of capacitance, not resistance.

2 - typical values of capacitors for passive pickups are 0.022uF and 0.047uF
(not 0.22uF and 0.47uF)

3 - you would get a value of 0.044uF by connecting two 0.022uF caps in parallel.
(this is just fine as a substitute for a 0.047uF cap)

4 - Gibson uses 0.022uF caps in many of their 2HB guitars.

5 - The Guitar Wiring Thread is probably a better place for this.
You can find it by using the GB&C Essential links thread at the top of this forum.
