These Hosco Paper in Oil Capacitors are made in the traditional vintage style but without the vintage price tag. They are based on the fabled Sprague Vitamin Q capacitors and the values available are those typically used for guitar tone circuits, the 0.022 uF value is used with humbucker pickups and 0.047 uF is used with single coil pickups and on a lot of basses. The capacitors have a 10% tolerance and please note, paper in oil caps are much larger than ceramic caps typically found in modern guitars, please check the dimension images for sizes.

Hosco Paper in Oil Cap great at this price. GTM free shipping too

This is the second identical capacitor I’ve purchase for the top circuit on my sons VM Squire Jaguar. The great thing about GTM is the zero shipping on any order. I’ve ordered much more expensive parts in the past. But GTM are always the first port of call for small upgrade components
