• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Got another R9 yesterday and have a question?

.. very nice R9.. congrats!

All good advice above..
..save your money or buy your mum a nice present..

Bonjour.
My "mum" is long gone but thanks and i am a bit surprised at some of these replies because i was under the impression upgrading pre 2018 historics to better(more accurate) plastics was a very common thing?🤔 Maybe that was just a fad?🤣

They're on their way from Philadelphia luthier👍 That was one of the first things I did
OK Don't force them on. Make sure they are the right spline count for the pots.
You know how to pull the originals off?

Careful not to dent the top finish with that. If you have trouble with it, just use the tried and true method of a small towel or a rag underneath the knob and pull up.
Thanks! 👍 i did not know Gibson's nitro was that soft i will just use the towel method. that is how i used to do it before i got the puller on sale.

This is very good info.
If able to choose between the two pots, I'd go for the coarse version. looks like they can withstand more stress from a hectic performer over time.
