    sprague orange drop cap seems to be the staple for a nice vintage fender tone.

    I put a Fender branded 0.1 uf in my P5 and I am quite pleased.

    I think it cost about $3.

    Don't know if changing the cap will make a big difference but changing the cap "value" will. Try an .022 .047 or a .01 .
