A TON of them when you turn the pot from about 7-0.
The higher the value, the MORE highs will be taken out of the signal as you turn the pot, vs. a lower value.
The cap is a tool the pot uses so you use a cap value that makes the pot do what you need.
Big hammer/Little hammer
Some that like to do the wha wha, or have very shrill or ice pick bridge pups will use a .1 or .047µF.
If you want a more subtle tone change ( or less aggressive darkening of your tone) when you use the pot, then a .022µF is a very good value. That will leave you some more highs even down to tight on the knob.
So if the tone knob is set at 10 it doesn't matter what capacitor you have?
I feel my guitar doesn't sound trebley enough even with tone at 10,250 pots 1uf cap, 57/62 pups.
