How do I get less bass?

kluson guyHow do I get less bass?
I am running a '58 Deluxe, recently recapped with stock values. I would like to get a bit less breakup on the low notes. The low G to E notes can get a bit farty, it would be nice if they held in there a bit tighter.  
I have tried several speakers in the Deluxe, all of which should have no problem handling the power.  
Currently I have a 5751/12AX7 combo on the input.  
I have more experience with pedal building. In this situation I would be changing the input & or output cap. Is there a cap value that I can change, can anyone point me in the right direction??  
Any help appreciated!
