As of 12:35 today I am now an Epiphone Embassy owner 🙂

 

Sadly shifts spent clambering up and down scaffolding leave me a bit knackered these days so all you folks will get is a photo.

Well a photo and a promise , those bloody roundwound strings are coming off ASAP 😄

 

Good luck with the scratchplate film! And don't forget the backs of the tuners!

I still need to pull my knob off and loosen my nuts.

I managed to pull the film from under the knobs with some tweezers, but I really need to remove the knobs and nuts and do it properly.

I ran a scalpel very carefully along the index bits.

 

I don't want to remove the scratchplate unnecessarily.

 

Question... if anyone has had the plate off, are they CTS pots?

Do they normally have CTS pots ?

 

If they do then the CTS factory in Taiwan must have had supply issues, mine has a volume pot from Jin Sung in Korea and a Korean Alpha tone pot.

Some of the guitars do - the 'old gold' LP and the Coronet.
