Has anyone tried these in a JM? I've got a set in an LP Custom and they made a pretty noticeable improvement.

I don't see the picofarads on that site?

Pico is the prefix for 10 to the -12 .. so .01 microfarads would be 10000 picofarads.

If you're talking about the µF in their retail pricing pdf, that is microfarads .. µ is the symbol for micro, 10 to the -6 .. µF is microfarads although for some reason people also write it mfd which strictly speaking should mean millifarads.
