I just purchased a 2019 SG Jr. Being curious, i removed the back cover. Everything looks in order. There is a volume & tone marked Gibson plus a 223 orange drop cap. My ? is, are they both 500k pots? Cant measure said pots without disassembly, which I'm not willing to do.

Would anyone happen to know the stock setup offhand?

Have in mind that the P90 is a single coil pickup, just saying ... Lol

The Junior will have either 300K or 500K pots from the factory.

Rule of thumb is Strat style single coils get 250K pots. Humbuckers and P-90’s get 500K pots.

500K pots will allow the pups to have more hi end sparkle where 300K pots will not.

All my guitars have P-90’s with 500K pots.

I’ve found that it is much easier to remove too much treble from pups wired with 500K pots using the tone controls on the amp or EQ than trying to add treble that isn’t there to begin with if pups are wired with 300K pups.

I called Gibson customer service & the very kind gentleman informed me that the pots are indeed 500k. :smile:
