    It doesn't relate to seven digits, or anything like these I found on a set of Guild pups. U-53 #Q11
    (It has the # sign stamped on there. )

    Then in my old parts box I found this pot:
    RAUD 2-35 R7850

    Anyone know?


    thanks.

    If you post on LetsTalkGuild.com, I bet Hans would be able to ID those Guild pickups for you. Can't help you otherwise.

    Guild didn't follow the EIA code, so those aren't going to be able to be deciphered from most EIA code guides.

    The R-Audio pot is an odd code. There were companies that didn't follow the EIA code (some still do, some still don't). It was a voluntary thing. My best guess for the R-Audio pot would be that it was made in 1978, 50th week. Manufacturers were almost always 3 or 4 digits. None had dashes. 235 is Mallory, but 2-35 isn't anyone.

    Ha! I have no idea where I got these. It's a complete harness with one pot replaced with a regular one, and there's been a phase switch installed.
    I've had so many guitars, but I just don't remember modding a Guild. I did work at a music store in Kenmore Ohio for a while and may have gotten them there. (Henry's Music)
    I'll check out the Guild site. Thanks for the replies.
