"Red Dime" SK .1X 50V Vintage NOS Ceramic Capacitor for Fender

Vintage NOS "Red Dime" SK .1X 50V Ceramic Capacitor



These capacitors are not reproductions, they are original NOS (New old stock) from the 60s.
The "SK .1X 50V" also known as "RED DIME" was used from 1961 in the Strat, the Tele and the Fender basses. For everyone who has an original or repro 60's Fender, a Red Dime is a holy duty. The Cap brings you in connection with the right pickups the typical "Fender Vintage 60's Tone".

If you install one of these tiny modern ceramic capacitors instead, or a high voltage one that is only optically similar, you will certainly be disappointed with the result. Modern multi layer capacitors are completely different, and usually produce a distorted, shrill, unusable sound that has nothing in common with the single layer "Red Dimes".

Unfortunately, we have only been able to get hold of a fistful of these extreme rarities. The caps are original Vintage 60's Sprague caps like the Red Dimes. We have carefully removed the label from these caps and replaced with vintage correct markings. We are happy when they awaken to life in your darling after more than 50 years of deep sleep.

For an extra charge we can also include a Red Dime in one of our Prewired Kits.  If you are interested just let us know.
