My buddy has built a '59 LP Standard. We are wondering what the correct specs for the 4 pots (2 vol 2 tone) would be. We are looking for the correct ohms, tapers and ratios please.
Thanks. I was hoping for a little more detail. Good to know L & M has those for sale.
My buddy and I read about 200 posts about Centralab pot replacements and these are on top for sure, price and quality etc. The only thing that is perhaps a challenger is Gibson announced a new historic pot for 2019 at NAMM and it may be as good, maybe not. We priced 2 sets of 4 short shaft VIPots with 2 sets of 2 caps at $170 CAD shipped. So that's $85 CAD each set. One for his guitar and now a set for my SG.
Yeah, because a pot made in 1959 as compared to today is gonna have such a tonal and taper difference that anyone listening is going to run up to you and say "Hey, that tone is incredible! And the way the pots respond when you roll back the volume from 9 to 7..... You must be using vintage pots!!!"If you read the thread I linked to, the old Centralab pots will apparently improve tone, taper and clarity.
Any reason as to why you would make such an effort to maintain/"return it to"The wiring is messy, and I was able to return it to this exact messy wiring again.
It was easiest, and yes, I wanted my guitar exactly the way it was...Any reason as to why you would make such an effort to maintain/"return it to"
the exact messy wiring? Is that just a joke or were you worried that a change (i.e., more "tidy") in the wiring might influence the tone of the guitar?
BTW..It really doesn't seem all that messy to me.
