The other guitar player in my band is close to purchasing a 2018 Les Paul Traditional. I read the specs and it looks good to me, including nickel hardware. The one thing I cannot find is the pot rating. Does anyone know if these are 500K or 300K?

Gibson rep just told me they come with 500k pots for both vol and tone.

I recently heard a Gibson rep saying they are now using 550k pots to cover the tolerance range, not sure when this started and if it covers the 2018 models maybe worth checking out. Also heard Gibson have started measuring and grading pots to match certain pickups.
