So my epiphone Les Paul starting to have a weird problem when i started playing today. The neck pickup is stuck at a very low volume range. I'd say it's about 2/3 as loud as the bridge pickup, when both volume knobs are at full. Also, if I have it set to use both pickups, it's loudest when the knob for the neck pickup is turned down a little bit.

I know a little bit about wiring, and I looked around and didn't see anything blatantly wrong. Does anyone have any idea what it could be?

check the pot for the neck pickup, try changing it, if that doesnt work, then you might need another pickup

ok, which type of pot do I need? I know I need 500k, but long shaft or standard shaft?

until I get the new pot, can I just wire it up without the volume pot for that pickup? Will it be the same as it was before on full volume?

yes it will be. all a volume pot really does is direct to signal to the ground when you turn it down.

The pots epi uses are pretty cheap. If your going to do one do them all. And my epi LP uses short shaft pots.
