Help regarding a 63 Firebird. Is this untouched solder joints? and can someone help with the date on the potentiometer? THX!

Hi Goldfield, this control cavity must belong to a cool Firebird! The potentiometer code "137 6415" indicates that these were made by CTS during the 15th week of 1964. 137 = CTS (manufacturer), 64 = 1964, and 15 = 15th week of that year. I think it's likely that this guitar left the factory in 1964. I did not observe any disturbed solder. Cool find!
