Can sombody pass me a normal les paul wiring diagram?, thats basically it. Thanks
normal???? There is no such animal. Try being more specific.

my les paul has coil separation by pushing up a pot. Does this change things?
you're getting warmer

thanks a bunch.
Sorry for my ignoracne, but my LP has only one push pull, does this still aply?
warmer still.


but your thread still sucks so hard it should have been titled "Hoover".

Get specific about your LP.

It probably has 2 HBs and a standard 3-way toggle. But even that much isn't a given.

1 - Do you have only 2 pickups? or 3?

2 - When you operate the push-pull, does it split both pickups or just one.

2a - If just one, which? Neck or Bridge.

3 - Does it have 1 volume and 1 tone control? or 2 volumes and 2 tones?

3a - If 2 and 2, what happens if you have both pickups selected and you turn ONE of the volumes all the way to minimum? Does it kill the sound?


There are several different wiring schemes for LPs. If you describe what you have, you'll be more likely to get a link to something that's at least close to what you have. If not, just keep playing guessing games until you finally get a good answer or everyone just gets bored and walks away.

the ball is in your court. shoot, pass, or just stand there dribbling.

OKay, the pot splits both of them.
It has 2 Humbuckers, a tree way switch, normal regular les paul.
And a push/pull pot that as i said before splits the coil.
2 volume and 2 tones


If 2 and 2, what happens if you have both pickups selected and you turn ONE of the volumes all the way to minimum? Does it kill the sound? I think not, i dont have my guitar, it is at repair. The thing is i never use the coil splitter since it takes away volume, and it is not very good

thanks anyways

Here's a link to a wiring diagram from guitar electronics.
It has independent volume controls like you believe you have.
and a single split switch for both HBs.
When split, it will use the south coil of the bridge
and the north coil of the neck.
There is no way to be 100% certain your guitar is wired exactly like this.
I'd link you to a Seymour Duncan drawing that would be easier to understand.
but they don't have one for 2 and 2 with just one push-pull doing the splits.

Okay, I got my guitar today, I sent it for a calibration.

And about the volumes, If i put the treeway switch in the middle and turn the volume of one of the pickups all the way down, they die out.
some picks
bad quality though

Overview of Circuit


Neck tone ( coil splitter )


Neck Volume


Bridge Tone


Bridge Volume


The three way switch


The knobs


Okay so here ther is all the pics

thanks

Okay. That means the diagram I linked to is definitely different from the way your guitar is wired.

to be honest, I can't make out much from those pics. But the description tells me something. I know that each pickup is wired to the clockwise terminal. Then the wiper is wired to the switch. When the pot it turned counter-clockwise, the wiper has a low resistance to the counter clockwise terminal. That causes the low resistance to short the signal from the other pickup to ground when this one is at minimum, and both are selected.

This wiring is both a curse and a blessing.

It will cause you to lose all sound when 1 volume is at minimum and both are selected.
That can be annoying.

but the volume controls work better this way, especially if only 1 pickup is selected.
and if you use this as a killswitch, you can do stuttering effects just by rapidly moving the selector.

Wiring so that they are independent will lose this function.
And the volume controls will darken the tone before the volume decreases if only 1 pickup is selected.
But you won't accidentally have no sound when the selector is on "both".
