The tone capacitor also plays an important role in the response of the tone knob. There are several different types of capacitors commonly used for electric guitars. Both the material used in the cap and its capacitance value will affect the tone and response of the control. The most commonly found capacitor values are .047uf and .022uf, for single coils and Humbuckers, respectively. The larger the capacitance value, the more treble will bleed off and the darker the tone control will be. The lower .022uf value tends to be great for blues and rock as there are many subtle shades available as the tone control is swept. The .047uf is great for jazz, achieving darker tones as well as being great for taming bright single coils.
How do you know what cable is right for you? The simple way is to go to your local guitar store and try them out. Everyone has a different taste so what sounds good to me may not be the best for you, so you can't really by on someone else's opinion. Find a similar guitar and amp to yours in the store or take your own gear with you to try the cables out. This way you can work out what option is best for you. The great thing is that you can spend around $25 or $30 and this can make a huge difference to your guitar tone.
