Those are no help. We need to see the control cavity, back of the headstock.
Best of luck.Thanks for the advice
Best of luck.
I just think anyone deserves to know what they are getting. It is also a negotiating tool, pointing the non original parts. The chainsaw case is far from an actual purpose designed "flight case". You will probably never know if the speed knobs are truly Gibson authentic.
Most images I have seen of LPCs from that narrow band of years have tulip shaped tuning knobs. The one I have an that one are the half round.
These are actual with hats. Fugly, imwo.

You are quite welcome. Most of what I told you was learned here.Thanks for that info my friend. Appreciate it.
So it may have been the pots and not the T-tops ... I can get onboard with that. The 500k Pots transformed my Lester.As mentioned, check the pot date codes. I owned my 1972 Les Paul Custom for many years before removing the solder to see 1974 date codes on the pots. I removed and saved the pots for dating and replaced them with 500k.
My other theory is Dimarzio sold so many "Super Distortion" pickups because the sound better than the stock pickups with the 300K pots.
