Without looking at the cap we are not 100% sure what you have. A 474K would designate a .47uf orange drop cap and a 473K would be a .047uf. To answer your second question, the higher the cap value the more high end it will roll off. For example, a .1uf cap will roll off the most highs while a .001uf will roll of the least highs. You can send us an email with a picture of your cap at: so we can try to identify your current cap.

Both the 225P and the 715P can be used for guitar tone potentiometers. We simply suggest the 100V caps because when working in a confined area, smaller parts are easier to work with. Both will fit, but the 715Ps will be more cramped for space.
