    I have an American Special that I am rather fond of. It is the tele I keep set up for jazz. I would like to replace the pick-up selector with a four-way switch. What do I need to know about cap values?

    What exactly are you trying to achieve with the switch? Need more info.

    Thanks Jim, I'm going to assume that the tech at Long & McQuade was just B.S.ing me. They tend to do that there.
