les paul traditional control cavity


Recommended Posts

usually 60's have little blue caps... why your comes with orange? lucky?


(Think you've misread something...)

It did came with the lil' blue caps like everyone elses but I soldered in some Orange Drops myself (0.22 100v's).


I was only wondering which value the Orange Drops are that are to be found in the 50's 'cause that's

the only thing imo that makes the sound difference between a 50's and a 60's.



Anybody ?


found some mention of lil' blue caps on this thread.......

The Orange Drops were really used exclusively in the 50s Tribute models. Gibson USA started using the small blue caps a year or two ago instead of the standard ceramic disk caps.
