Hey all

I was hoping someone could help me.  This cbg was presented to me for repair. It was afflicted with some geographically induced problems.....fret sprout, warpage, etc..it moved from the northeast to southwestern new Mexico. I repaired it plugged it in and wow this thing sounds great!! I opened it back upto look at the volume/tone circuit.  The problem is that it has three capacitors that I can't identify. That's where you guys come in. I know someone out there can identify these by the numbers....I have faith....bring on the info.

THANKS

Google is a great place for electronics information, btw?

Google "capacitor code chart" and use whichever suits the type of capacitors that are installed. A good magnifying glass helps with the small ceramic, mylar, or tantalum caps. I printed off the various charts, laminated them and keep them in the draw of my electronics bench to always have on hand.
