    If anyone has a pre- '71 Gibson EB-3, please open it up and let me know what value capacitors you see in there (brand and ratings welcome, but not necessary).

    I've come across several schematics and the values vary quite a bit. Even the Gibson schematic looks odd! I'm trying to recreate the series 1 varitone "choke" circuit in my Epiphone EB-3L, but before I start soldering things in place I want to verify with any actual components that were being used at the time. Thanks!
  2. I would be more concerned with what sounds good to you than what's period correct or whatnot.
