How can I tell if a cap is bad without removing the pickup guard? The reason for this is it seems to have way more treble then it once had. I noticed this after I changed strings. I compared it to another MIM strat and the MIM strat sounds better.

Caps in guitar tone work or not. Your cap look working.

If you only change your strings and put same gauge ; Tone is from you new strings.
If you put another gauge, guitar may need a complete set up ; neck truss rod, pickups height , intonation....

You ask how to know if cap is good without removing the pickgard ..
But how can you tell if cap is bad or not IF you remove the pickgard ? You have a capacitor checker ?

Subject to how old the original strings were new strings almost always sound brighter (more trebley) than with old strings.
