I'm docking this one star because of a) the size and b) the price. I know that PIO caps are large and expensive, but at the end of the day it's still just a capacitor. PIO caps are the best for audio applications, true, (especially inside a guitar) but they aren't tremendously different from a Chinese capacitor IN FUNCTIONALITY. They're essentially the same.

But, yes, the are great caps in my guitars. I've tried ceramic disc, box and metal film, poly film (greenies the ones Fender provides) and of all these, the MOD's are the best for me. I think I like them better than the Spraque orange drops too. Why? Well, they are slightly warmer (which you may not want at all, can muddy the tone) but I needed that in a couple of the guitars I use them on. Also their "turn-on" factor is far better if you're using them for a volume bleed, so swells and fiddling with your volume knobs... these produce the best results I've heard so far. I think I still prefer the Sprague's to use these as tone control caps, but it's definitely a matter of taste, not which one is "better" here in this application.

But yeah so far for a treble bleed, these MOD's are the best I've used. I'll keep using them. I wish they were smaller as some guitar cavities don't have room for axial caps with large leads, but you have to take the good with the bad I guess.
