Hi there
I was wondering if any body can help.
I have a Les Paul Standard that has ceramic disc caps.
I am trying to identify them so I can get some more of exactly the same ones for my other guitars.
Ok so on the cap it has this written on it in this order

BC
Z5U
223M

If any body can help me identify these that would be great
Cheers
Gavin

Here's a chart for you. http://www.bobknarle...h/capcodes.html

223 is the number you would use.
That would make it a .022uf

There are much better caps out there. And which other guitars are you talking about as the caps may not be a good fit for some of your other guitars. I think fenders generally take a different value that gibson.
