    Once I gain the confidence I think I'll overhaul everything: pots, capacitors, output jack and anything else I can find.

    Gibson is not alone in having made pot/cap choices that seem odd...but Gibson seems to have used a lot of 300K and 100K pots with humbuckers. I don't know why, and the explanation of limited quality control may be the reason. It was easier to get pots that are unusual values then than now, so my guess is that somebody was experimenting, decided they sounded good and ran a series of them.
