1952-58 Tele/Strat/P-Bass .1uf/150v Repro Cap
This cap was factory installed in the Stratocaster, Telecaster and Precision Bass. I offer three variations of the chiclet/phonebook, to suit your exact instrument. Please see my Ebay store for the other two.
*If you are working on a Precision bass, the first models used a .1mfd/200v brown label Astron cap (borrowed from the amplifier assembly area) together with a 15k 1/2 watt resistor. I don't think Leo like the Astrons as much as the Cornell-Dubiliers for his top model guitars (Those little Dubilier caps were top-of-the-line and cost five dollars each in today's money! The caps used by Fender today only cost a few cents each!) and by 1952 all the Precisions have the $5 brown chiclet with the 15k resistor. In 1956 the wiring changed again, leaving out the resistor, and stayed the same (.1mfd) until 1964 when they started using a .05 cap. Instructions for the 1956-on P-Bass will be included,
