1964-70 Fender Esquire .05mfd/50v Cap/Resistor Kit
After many requests, I am finally offering ceramic caps for all you '60s and '70s collectors.
This is a highly accurate Reproduction Capacitor and Resistor set for your 1964 to 1970 Fender Esquire. This includes cloth and plastic insulation for the capacitor and resistor leads to correctly duplicate the exact appearance of a 1960s Esquire control cavity. I also include full-size drawings with detailed instructions for wiring color and placement. The 1960s Esquire is a rare bird!
Included in this kit:
3X Cornell-Dubilier .05/50v Ceramic Dime Capacitor
1X NOS 3.3k Ohm 1/2 Watt Carbon Comp Resistor
Detailed and Illustrated Wiring Instructions
These caps are handmade using vintage 1960s .05uf/50v Solar brand ceramic capacitors. A lot of old ceramic caps are leaky and worthless, but these ones test spot on, just like the day they were made. If you've got a re-issue or an original Fender Esquire with missing caps, these are just the thing for you, but don't forget the psychedelic colored cloth wire Fender started using in the 60s!
