What is the value of the pots on an Epiphone 1956 Les Paul Pro?

    The query is in the thread title. Does anyone know the values of the pots? They only say Made in Korea 2014 on mine. This is one of the models with the Epiphone Pro P-90s.

    I know the guitar uses the 50's-style wiring. I'm wondering whether the pots are typical 500k LP pots or something else.

    Thanks!

    No, really, I did a 339 rewire last month and mine are sitting in a cottage cheese container somewhere, I'll look.

    Hmmm. You know, I mean... 250K, 500K, etc. Value in resistance.

    When I bought a Historic Gibson LP some years ago, the first thing I did was replace the pots with a kit from RS Guitarworks. I didn't even measure the originals. I don't know the values used in the Epi's, but even if they are 500K, which they should be, there are better ones out there. Just one picker's opinion. Gibson used 300K linear pots on a lot of guitars for a while. I hate the response curve on those.
