The popular capacitor for a vintage tone is paper-in-oil caps.  I love these for Teles and Strats.  They have just the right amount of treble bleed when bypassed (tone on 10) and roll off highs smoothly with a rich sound.  They’re hard to describe but I’ve found them to be the most “vintage” tonally and the most pleasing to me on single coils.  Paper-in-oil capacitors tend to be on the expensive side due to not being widely manufactured.  There are also lots of vintage paper-in-oil capacitors out there to be had but they command a premium price and are getting harder and harder to come by.
