Hello all! Sold my two USA Gibson recently and bought my very first R9 Custom shop model.





One question. Are these Gibson stock pots? There is no code on the bottom of pots..
Very nice, love that top. Congrats!

Pots/caps are original but looks like they were taken out at some point. It's common to return a guitar to stock before selling it.
This

also, inspect the solder work connecting rhythm pickup to volume pot. I can’t see it well enough in your photo but it looks suspect...may need a quick hit with soldering gun

Thanks for comments, pots works fine but these are bit stiff to adjust compared to my other guitars with CTS pots..

These stock pots feels so stiff that i plan upgrade pots anyway. Could these pots fit on my guitar?
When i assume it needs to be be "short shaft"..
