    I bought a set of these capacitors on EBay recently, and received them today.

    I'm assuming by the little black line on one end, that they have a positive and negative end, and that the black line denotes the negative. Is this correct?

    If that's the case, then the other thing I need to know is how to wire them in to my Classic Series '50s Esquire, i.e. where to solder each end. I want to keep the wiring as is, but put these capacitors in place of the stock ones. Here's the stock diagram.

    Can anyone tell me how to proceed? Of course, I might be falsely assuming that they have a positive and negative end, in which case, disregard everything! :rolleyes:

    Thanks in advance.

    Never mind, I worked it out from some pictures of the wiring of a '58 Esquire. Tricky, but it works.

    Yes capacitors do have a neg. and pos. to them but in this application, it doesnt matter which way they go.


    Good luck on the project and happy pickin'
