Lovely tone cap discovery

It's been a while since I experimented, but I found a really usable and toneful cap. I swapped in a .oo2uf cap in lieu of the .022/.047 I had there recently.

Rolling it slightly back removes single coil sparkle. Full off turns single coil tones into thicker P90 tones. Zero mud or ****ed wah tone - pick attack stays really clear. Stays clear and balanced, though only slightly less bright; it just removes the edge and gives me access to a new world of legitimately useful tones. A really useful treat!
