I have 81 85s in my les paul. I want to put my pearly gates and 59s back in. Do I have to change the pots and jack also? Or will I just be able to wire them up and leave out the battery? Also I'm new and can't remember which one goes in the neck position.
Nope you replaced it all to put actives in you will have to put 500k pots and the right caps back into it again.
