  1. I have done some research and you're right. They used Bill Lawrence ceramic sealed Humbuckers. The pots look to be 500k but I believe one is 300 maybe? My son was distracting me while I was looking so I may be wrong. I'm hoping to get as close to the original parts as possible. However, I'm finding out lately that's going to be a challenge. I remember the amazing sound and the diverse range that my grandfather could achieve with this beauty. So it's worth all the headache to keep it original. Thank you all for your help.
  2. Hey there, I'm a little late to this post but just found out about this forum a few days ago. I have a 1980 Gibson Les Paul L6-S. It was made in Nashville February of 1980. I believe it's a tobacco sunburst version but I'm just now getting specifics. Can anyone offer any info on replacing the pickups?
  3. Have a Gibson BR-9 that I'm wanting more information on. I know little about it and I'm needing to give it once over. Pots are intermittent and one knob is slightly cracked. I would like to keep it all original equipment if possible. Thanks for your help in advance.IMG_20180712_072246.webp
  4. Wow talk about quickness. Thank you for that info. The pickups were shorting out. I'm guessing it was soldering issue. The volume and tone pots were becoming scratchy. Any suggestions on what to do or where to find the original parts? The searches I've done have yielded little results.
  5. Hello Everyone, I have a L-6S that was passed down to me from my grandfather. After several years of playing it I would like to restore and replace some of the parts. Mostly replace the pickups, pots, and wiring. Everything on this is still the original equipment and other than what I just mentioned all is in great shape. I'm wanting more specifics on this brand if possible. I'm unsure of the exact year but I have the serial number. Also, one if the pickups has November 197X on it. So I'm almost there! Any suggestions on replacement parts would also help me out. I've attached some pictures as well, however having to resize them didn't improve the clarity. Thank you all.
