    I'm evaluating this for consignment at my shop, and I can't seem to find out exactly which model this is, or what the value is. Any help would be much appreciate!

    From the guitardaterproject.com

    This potentiometer was made by
    CTS Corporation (Chicago Telephone Supply)
    in the 14th week of 1949 or 1959

    Are we sure about that? DC-1 doesn't come up with a guitar that looks like that :/

    Lots of pedals tho...

    It's a 3012 U-1 as mentioned.

    As to price, how fast do you want to sell it? If you can let it sit for a while, I'd say $600-700. At $500, it's a decent deal for a serious buyer, I think. That's a common color on Danos. If it was a custom color, which are rarer, it would be more.
