The standard(more or less,factory) tele tone cap is .047. My Squier CV 50's tele came stock with a .033. Can any more appreciable or hearable darkening of tone be obtained by switching out the stock for a .047, or are we talking subtleties only a four pawed beast could detect?! Thanks in advance for any advice or techy tips!

Oh no, not a cap question !
The standard(more or less,factory) tele tone cap is .047.
1st off, I wouldn't say .047 is standard. Fender has used .022 on just about everything for years.........but that doesn't mean that MAKES it THE Standard, or any other value for that matter.
A cap is a tool that the tone put uses and determines how the pot will work in it's duty. Simple as that. Also, FOR THE MOST PART, when your tone pot is on 10, it doesn't mean jack $*@^ what is on there.
From about 7-0, the larger the value, the MORE highs will be taken out to the signal, giving a darker tone.
So it's a user preference thing. If you want a less aggressive tone roll off, you may like the .022. If you like things to get darker, quicker, .047...........some even use .1 too if they like wha wha effect.
If you really want to get a cap full, do a search here, you will be reading for DAYS !
