Hi All,
I took my 1959 MM to my trusted guitar tech today and he tells me that the number on the tone pot is:

345943

We can't find a number on the volume pot, or it is obscured by solder.

Going by one of the MLP threads to date vintage Gibson pots, this would appear to be a tone pot made the 43rd week of 1959. The 345 at the beginning, though, is not mentioned as being associated with one of their supplier's names. Thoughts on this? Thanks.
