Hi Guys ...I want some advice on what Pots and caps to put in a 2001 57 Historic Black Beauty..it has stock Gibson pots and ceramic caps..I want to keep it as close to original as poss if that is poss? anything I add I would like it not to affect the resale value to much in the future.

I was told to get:

Bees Caps (original 50's)
CTS super 500k pots for Volume
CTS 500k pots for Tone

any ideas guys

Thanks

I think you've nailed it. Real Bees & CTS pots.
I put reproduction Grey Tigers in my Custom just to be different. I don't know how different they sound to Bees.
The good thing about replacing pots, caps and even pickups is that you can just keep all the original equipment and put it back in if you ever choose to sell.

The Grey Tigers are supposed to be the same quality as the PIO Bees from what I've seen, heard & read.
