    Can you describe the tonal difference between the two?

    A .1uf cap is going to shunt more highs to ground, resulting in a darker overall tone when the tone pot is rolled off compared to a .047/.05 which is the most common P Bass cap value since the early to mid 60's. If you have ever played a stock 57 or 62RI, .1uf is the capacitor they come with.
    A .047 is going to shunt less highs to ground, meaning a slightly brighter overall tone when rolled off. This is the most common Precision cap value and can be found stock from the 60's until today. This is the value US and MIM standards are currently equipped with.
