    60s Knobs

    One of the differences between the 50s and 60s original Standards is the knobs. The 60s Original comes with reflector knobs. I’m beginning to think that a majority of 1960 Standards had the 59 style knobs though. The reflector knobs seem to only be on serial numbers somewhere above “0 7xxx”...

    2019 Original 60 LP Standard Pot Replacement

    I’m thinking about putting some push-pull pots in my original ‘60s. I tried to take the current ones out to take a look, and to see if I need long shafts, but the plate with the pots won’t come out.
