I see that you prefer the green metal film capacitors. I like the ceramics...seem to have a little more body. Although, the metal film have more tone sweep. It all depends on your individual taste. Nice wiring job BTW.

Who are you addressing- is this someone on rukind? Can you tell what all these switches are supposed to do? I can't.

Sorry about that. I thought it was from someone from Rukind. Now I see the ebay link.
It looks like in each row there are 2 switches that activate 2 different capacitors for a variation in tone, aside from the Phase and coil cut switches.
But it gets more Bizarre, there are three rows of switches and only 2 pickups.....

That's kinda what I was expecting to see, but I'm only seeing two caps total, one for each tone pot.
