    Volume/Tone Pot Question

    I recently upgraded my guitar with Seymour Duncan '59's. The guy I got the pups from told me I should upgrade to 500k pots. When I swapped out the pups, I noticed the pots with 500k, as well as 480k stamped on the back of the pots. Would these be original, or are they upgraded from a...

    Standard Vs Classic?

    I took my classic into the local music store to find what type of pickups they are. All I was told was that they were a special order, and that the number wasn't the order number for any other model. I have a review on the classics from a 2004 magazine that says the classic has a maple top...

    My Birdseye Paul

    I think for me Semour Duncans are the way for me to go. I went to the music shop a few months ago, and they handed me a Gibson studio with Burstbuckers in it. I didn't like them.....could be because it was chambered. They had SD59's but without covers.I might start there for real mods as long as...

    Thanks, The burst is almost subtle, as if they doubled on the amber finish, and you can see the grain in the top.
