2004 R9 Pots and Caps


Recommended Posts



I have a 2004 R9 and I'm trying to figure out what pots and caps should have come on the guitar. I bought the guitar used several years ago.

The pot codes are all 440-70501-0419.

I believe from previous research,  that 440 stands for 500K Ohms, 70501 is the Gibson part number for Historic pots made by CTS and 0419 stands for the 19th week of 2004. Is this correct info?

I am trying to find out what caps should be in this guitar. Based on info from another Forum, Bumblebees started appearing in 2003 Historics. My guitar has Bumblebees, but no Bumblebee equipped card in the case candy.

I realize that since the guitar was used, the case candy could have been removed. Anyone out there with a 2004 R9 that can chime in and let me know what caps are in your guitar would be greatly appreciated.
