It's purely subjective as to whether they are better or not. Some people say yes, some say it doesn't matter. I put them in all of my guitars, and personally love them, noticed some more clarity when using them too. Your call though...


Rule of thumb: 47uF (250k pots) for single coils and 22uF (500k pots) for humbuckers.

I guess than there is no need to replace the capacitors. it wont make the guitar better.

The tone is proportional to how expensive they are. The more esoteric and expensive means they produce better tone.

Right?

It probably will, it's just that caps don't make a huge difference and we can't really tell you what you'll like best.
Orange drops are a decent step up from the ceramics they put in stock LPs. You'll probably notice that you can actually use your tone knob below 8.
