whats the voltage rating that i should get for a capacitor for a volume pot?

and what kind should i get?
i read that 0.001microfarad is like standard
but whats 330pf ceramic capacitors thats on most ibanez wiring diagrams

i checked out some sites and i guess 330pf means .003microfarad, and 100volt capacitors should be all i need
if anyone knows something i dont please say

micro (u) = 10^-6
nano (n) = 10^-9
pico (p) = 10^-12

hence your missing a zero there

330pF = 0.00033uF

yup the lower the value cap the higher the frequency range it allows through.. so a 330pF will let a little less mid-high frequencies escape to teh output then a 1nF (0.001uF).. the frequencies that get through will be three times higher then with a 1nF. (an octave an a bit)
