Paper in Oil Caps!…..Not just snake oil

Wait a minute,….Now you’re telling me that the caps in my guitar make a tonal difference?!?!

Pffft!!! this should be good!!!

But seriously, if you use your tone controls and find that rolling back beyond about 7 turns into a “mud” control

Vintage Bumble Bee caps are getting upwards of $50 each in certain places…yikes! for a cap!

But paper in oil caps (PIO) are only a few bucks and they sound way different than the little ceramic discs that might be in your axe.

Assuming you use the tone controls, the range of tones available are far greater over the entire range of the tone pot. Really cool for dialing in that vocal-vowel midrange we love ;^}

Paper in Oil….just snake oil?!….no way.

50s Vs Modern Les Paul Wiring

I’m a Les Paul player and years ago I stumbled onto a diagram showing that the 50’s Gibsons were wired differently. I tried this wiring out and wound up converting all my Pauls to the 50’s wiring.

The 2 pickups interacted with each other differently.

Gibson players may want to check this wiring out. Here’s the article!
