Quest for tone part deux...

Got another sweet score in the mail today. I got my paws on a lot of Gudeman 0.022uf 200v paper-in-oil caps from an electronics surplus place out west. These are Vitamin Q type caps that are the military spec version of the consumer PIO caps like Bumblebees (that sell for a pile). Gudeman was one of Sprague's competitors and these were used interchangeably with the Vitamin Q's back in the day. All new old stock and ready to make some sweet tones in a Les Paul or 335 (or any other guitar with humbuckers). Sell a couple sets, gift a couple sets and I've got a good stash of fantastic caps at my disposal for my guitars.
