    Got a new Goldtop Standard and ... not loving it

    Just for sake of clarity, there are many Gibson Les Paul models that use short shaft pots. Here's a link to a blog post I did about it. In a nutshell: For the OP - You'll need long shaft pots.

    Very low volume from pickup

    Detailed pictures of the electronics cavity would be helpful. Include the switch as well.

    I'd pay $50 to have that POS thrown in the dumpster where it belongs.

    Overprice for a 1999 Les Paul?

    NONE of those upgrades, including the refin, would make the guitar command a price like that. The seller is delusional.

    Cracklings pots on new 60th anniversary ‘59 les Paul

    I think we've established the pot is fried. It sucks. It happens. Just get a new pot and be done with it. But with that said, if the shop tried to fix this and sent you on your way without a resolution, I wouldn't bother going back to them.

    Cracklings pots on new 60th anniversary ‘59 les Paul

    Exactly right. Most of the Historic pots I've had over the years were sub 500K.

    Cracklings pots on new 60th anniversary ‘59 les Paul

    See if you can find the CTS550K from WDMusic.UK. Assuming you're just looking to replace the pots. That'd be my first choice. I've also heard favorable ratings of the Bareknuckle Pickups Pots.

    Cracklings pots on new 60th anniversary ‘59 les Paul

    This. And it doesn't affect resale value one bit. It least in the 10+ Historic's I've owned over the years. Epi's...YMMV
