Gibson ES335 pots value


Recommended Posts

Hello. I own a 2008 Gibson ES335 from Nashville plant. She gets a wonderful
sound and expecially the neck PAF is powerful, full and jazzy. Is there any way
I can know the pots value of it?. A friend of mine has one 1963 reissue and she sounds
different, more bright. I am curious, beyond my opinion by ear. 
Have I to bring her to a liuther or there is I way I can track those pots values?
Thank you for your kind attention and best regards.

Hard to tell pot values on those guitars because there is no control cavity on the back of the guitar, so you can only get at things through the F holes.  Gibson specs on this website only go back to 2015 but those have 500K values.  Differences in tone could be the result of other factors like different pickups altogether as well as pick-up height.

Hopefully others here know more about them than I do.
