One set New Old Stock Russian Military Surplus K40Y-9 - 0.015uf & 0.022 uF/630V Capacitors.
.015uf - L - .94" X D - .39"
.022uf L - 1.14" X D - .39" If you are familiar with K40Y's, these are slightly longer than the 400v version.
The K40Y-9's are high quality capacitors made for military. The conductor is aluminum foil and the dielectric is oil saturated paper, glass sealed in a metal body. These capacitors provide excellent sonic characteristics, with a high tolerance in a wide temperature range. These are comparable in construction and characteristics to Vitamin Q's, and less expensive. .022 is common value in Gibson Les Paul's®, SG's®, ES-335's® and other guitars using Humbucker pickups. K40's are nice sounding caps, smooth and creamy. Putting the .015 in the neck position will make that pick-up a little brighter retaining more highs as you roll off. It's said that Clapton used this configuration, to get the "woman" tone in his Cream days (he played an SG back then).
