H, nice one. Yes hopefully it's a replacement pot. Did you get it under their warranty?
Maybe they're sending you a new Gibson.
A new Gibson you say . . that would be a strange and wonderful thing to behold.
Changing the pot if it is a new plug-in one will only take couple of minutes, and warranty, not likely, I bought it in July 2014.
Ooh, and I lied, it's not DHL, it's TNT.
