    I salvaged some parts off of a long forgotten bass project with the idea of upgrading the electronics in my Squier. A couple of 250k pots and a capacitor. But, I don't know if this particular cap is suitable for a tele. Will it work? Also,, how to test if it works? It should, it's never been used. Wired in, but not used.

    That there is a 0.047 microfarad. It might be a tad dark, as most folks like a 0.022. Who knows, you might like it, just solder it in and give it a shot, or do like @jvin248 and others recommend and temp it in with a couple of alligator clips, compare it to some other capacitors you may have.

    47nF polypropylene cap. It'll work fine. BTW any cap will 'work' it's whether or not it makes the tone filter sound/perform to the player's preference. I prefer smaller value caps usually under 10nF, personally.

    The 715p orange drops have a 5% tolerance as shown by the letter j.

    It'll work just fine. I have a .047 in my Tele, also an Orange Drop. Sounds great.
