Kind of a noob question, but does the capacitor value effect the tone when the knob is at 10? I'd like to be able to turn the tone down lower but without any difference at max tone.

Thank you. I turned the capacitor to max and I couldn't tell if I was just hearing things or if the tone at 10 changed too.

I'm basically trying to model my Davison SG and the capacitor is much deeper than the Les Paul guitars, but I want the SG models I'm making to be like a LP with more bite.

Short answer is yes, unless you have a "no load" tone pot.

With the knob at 10 there is SOME difference between cap values, but it's extremely minimal, unless you're EVH or Eric Johnson.
