    Low voltage V High voltage tone caps in Les Paul wiring loom.

    sure: Induction is the opposite of capacitance. This has two direct effects: First any (unwanted but still present ) induction in a cap acts like a notch filter ... so while the purpose of the cap is to pass anything above the cutoff lower frequency the unintended inductance starts to limit the...
