    Yes, it does seem they made less white 68 RI's. I have one from the late 90's. I know there were some made before the Randy Rhoads sig model was released which some claimed was Gibson doing a test run for the aged white color. Anyway, 68 RI's are awesome! :thumb:

    Here is the cavity Wiring of mine ???

    There are Gibson original Pots, but capacitors (seems original too)
    are from average 0,047uf (0,05uf - 50V - Y5F) instead of many other gibson LP
    with 0,022uf ones !!!

    Any ideas ?? Why mine is différent

    Are my Pots Taper audio or Linéar ?
    Are they 500k or 250k or 300k ?

    The pots are CTS/Gibson 500K Audio taper short shaft pots. CTS made them for Gibson to not sure what the taper actual is. I replaced mine with the Martin Six String 550k pots when I went to 50's wiring. The Gibson pots measured between 430-500k or a little better. Mine had the small ceramic disc 0,022UF's that I have seen in most of the 68 R.I. If I had to guess I would say someone decided to upgrade the caps in yours but who knows for sure. They did a nice clean job anyway.
