Bolt kit Tone cap value?

Postby hotsauce57 » Wed May 23, 2018 8:32 am

Anyone know the value of the tone cap used on the HSS version of the Bolt kit? Mine's a little too icepick-y and I'm hoping I can use the cap to rein it in...

One thing to keep in mind is that unless things have changed, your Bolt has 500k pots, which can make single coils and even some humbuckers hurty. Your best bet is replacing your volume and tone pots with 250k units. The tone cap primarily effects the tone roll-off characteristics, not the brightness.
