And while we're at it, where'd the pot thread go?

    I asked this question about a month ago about the craze for upgrading pots. The thread disappeared while I was waiting for a reply, so I'll ask again:

    It seems that some companies are selling upgrade kits with "Gibson" branded pots in there. How could this be any improvement over the pots in my Gibson? I believe my guitar could benefit from an upgrade, as it's been sounding kinda dead lately. But I don't want to buy the emperor's new clothes either. Thoughts?

    I haven't seen any with Gibson branded pots.

    Go Dr. Vintage or RS and you'll be happy with the results.

    I believe it's Mojo that sells the Gibson ones. I know RS specs their own, but others seem to be selling what would be stock (in an American guitar) anyway.

    I am expecting some CTS pots and WCR blasting caps in the mail shortly.An inexpensive way to indulge GAS and improve your tone.

    wait, what? Were we talking about which pots were in a nash tele? I think

    oh, cool, I found a dorito chip

    um, something about a cap, an orange drop. Orange. drop. Like dropping Orange Sunshine...far out, man.:messedup

    I think I'll take a nap, now. Wake me up when somebody finds out what pots are in a nash tele and the value of the orange drop caps, por favor. Gracias.

    Hahaha, I know I know. But I hate soldering, so the less the better!
