Stock tone cap in SB1?

Does anyone know what the tone pot capacitor value is in a stock SB1? Is it .047? If yes, has anyone done a mod to .1?

Should already be .1mfd

This circuit (PDF from G&L) shows it as .1mfd. A hand drawing that I have here shows it using code 104, witch is also .1mfd.

Note that the circuit used in the modern (today's) SB-1 is the same as the original with the split humbucker.
