For music lovers and guitar geeks...

Interesting interview with Paul Reed Smith about guitars and sound. The conversations turns to tone capacitors at ~ 7:00.  It's worth a look.

Paul is brilliant in his approach to building great guitars and his methodology extends into audio systems .  The man has a unique approach to the science of the sound of things with the human ear as the final judge.  Smart Dude!

i have seen every one of his informational videos and read everything I can on his design methodology.  His quest for “the tone”, quality and durability is educational in its scope.
