Parts Questions on my Elitist Goldtop?


Recommended Posts

I don't have my guitar in front of me. The guitar is the Epiphone Elitist Les Paul 1957 Goldtop. I'm purchasing some Guitarforce - Rebel I PAF's. Heard some great comments about these. Anyway, the owner of the company has asked if I want Polished or Raw Nickel for the pickup covers.


1) What are the current pickups on the guitar, Raw or Polished Covers?


2) My last cosmetic question is, after I replace the pots I will need to replace the knobs on the pots. Are the stock knobs the bell shaped or speed shaped?

for cryin out loud, "polished" is a term used to describe shiny things. on all epi's the covers are chromed giving a shiny polished look. The knobs won't fit usa cts pots. you'd need to get gibson knobs or widen the shaft hole of the stock pots just a bit.
