and I cant't seem to figure out what it is...

It's from a filter and I managed to break one of it's "legs" of, this is the part:

Sorry, phone pic... looks like J5n J63

I have the electronics somewhat working (in my Fender) and connected the q switch where this part came of.
I bet Mica can tell what happens when I flick the switch to the on position... It has a big red sign next to it that says: DO NOT USE!!!

If anyone can tell me what it is, I'd be very gratefull :-)

It's a capacitor.

50nF (50 nano Farads) 63 volts.

Usually on a Q switch, we change it to an axial type instead of these cute little box ones.
