It's also really quite expensive.

As a bonus, requires desoldering a bunch of stuff from the 3xDPDT switches and main volume/tone/output jack section to install it on a vintage-spec Jaguar body negating any benefits of a pre-wired 'drop in' harness.

So this guy is posting a listing for a vintage '62 style Jag wiring harness:

https://reverb.com/item/10167314-vintag ... ng-harness

However the cap values are different from what I see from the modern schematics that seem to be available at least. Did vintage Jags have these values?
There are 3 caps in a jag. The seller's pics show all 3 but the listing currently only has 1 (0.33uF). The main tone cap in the pic has an "SK" and ".1X" code, unlike the more common ceramic cap 3-number code, and are apparently NOS or replica Fender, and listed in several places as 0.1uF ...

Vintage correct would actually be 0.01uF.

Can't see markings on rhythm circuit cap, which should also be 0.01uF. Correct strangle cap would be 0.003uF (marking not visible in pic); the one cap in seller's current list is 0.33uF.

Suggest you confirm exact specs with the seller.

Thank you, very helpful!
