• 4 USA CTS500 550K (+/- 10% tolerance) knurled short shaft audio taper potentiometers (2 volume, 2 tone). Top of the line CTS pots! We do measure all pots and use higher values for the volume positions.
• 2 NOS (new old stock) Russian K40Y-9 PIO (paper-in-oil) tone capacitors. .015uF for the neck and .022uF for the bridge (you may request .022uF for the neck). Great sounding caps! Same as the Luxe caps except for the cosmetics.
• 50's style wiring.

Please note: this kit is designed for Gibson Les Paul Historic Reissue or vintage guitars that use short shaft pots (all Historic guitars and Gibson LPs made before 1978). Also, CTS pots require a 3/8" hole (in the top of your guitar); most USA made guitars are drilled this way, however imported guitars often are not.
