That's what I thought, I was hoping someone could confirm the fact. Thanks for your reply

Yep..50's wiring. But here is one thing I recommend, replace the caps with some NOS or similar. I did that on my Goldtop and absolutely love the difference!

MY '10 "54" Custom has audio taper pots and 50's wiring from the factory. The first new Gibson I've bought I haven't needed to change anything.
