Also, I replace the silicone capacitors with paper in oil capacitors. Now, I don't know what kind of guitar you play but on Gibson guitars the potentiometers, pickups, and capacitors are wired in such a way that when you lower the volume your treble reduces as well and gets muddy. When you re-wire it they way they were done in the 50's this does not happen. It works more like a volume pedal. Also the Tone knob is actually more usuable and acts as more of a "presence" knob to pull you in and out of the mix. This wiring, in my opinion, as well as many others adds much more clarity and adds much more versatility to your guitars tone.
