Recently upgraded my Gibson Les Paul Standard 50s to the www.tonemanguitar.com Blues Kit. I must say it made all the difference in the world to how my guitar functions. I'm even tempted to change out the controls in my R8 as the kits in my Standard functions way better than the controls in my R8 though I'm more hesitant to change them in it as the value might get affected.

Anyway enough rambling lets see those control cavities, they can be PCB, hand wired or anything as far as I'm concerned. I'm not against any wiring as long as it works for you.

just curious but I am wondering why the area under the pots is left unpainted ?
Because the pore filler / red dye is hand rubbed onto the back.... no sense wasting it to fill the cavity.

Though it is “painted” with the clear nitro as it sprayed all over. The scraped area reveals the untinted wood.
