Vintage K40Y-9 Soviet military paper in oil (PIO) capacitor - .022uf/1000v. The K40Y-9 are high quality PIO capacitors made for Russian military. The conductor is made of aluminum foil and the dielectric is oil saturated paper, glass sealed in a metal body. These capacitors provide excellent sonic characteristics, and a high tolerance within a wide temperature range. 022 is common value in Les Pauls, SG's ES Series, Epiphones, even some newer Fenders. Super nice cap, and getting harder to find. The 1000v variety are longer 1.35" than the 400v version. Because of the length they should be top mounted with leads curled under to lugs. There is ample room to accommodate these caps in a Les Paul cavity. If you are willing to tolerate the longer case, you get K40Y-9 quality at about have the price of the 400v version.
