Thanks , I can only read 137 70... on 2 pots but the rest of the code is soldered on, I will try to look at them more closely as fast as I can find the time. I am positive the post are original , the serial number is also important its 956964. I had a 1970 LP Custom in almost the exact same range (958......) That guitar had 7014 pots. so im thinking maybe the late spring /early summer of 1970? Considering a 4-8 weeks delay from manufactured to soldered in. Walnut was also a new coulour for 1970 right ? Don´t think i have seen any walnut 69's, but I havent studied this subject to deep.
