Question about Epiphone Les Paul Studio Electric Guitar

1 Answer

Low volume on front pickup of Epiphone Les Paul

I've checked all wires for continuity,verified resistance on both pickups, and measured resistance on all pots, and everything seems fine.Lead position is fine, both lead and rhythm position are fine,but in rhythm position only, it has low output. The selector switch has been changed also and is working properly.

I have an old sg, and this happened to me too. the repair guy told me that inside the p/u, the windings were broken, resulting in a lower output. go on e-bay, and look up a neck pos. humbucker. there everywhere. or do yourself a favor, and do what i did. i have an epi. flying v, and epi. les paul. on e-bay, i bought gibson 57 classics. i put these in both my guitars, and i now have great sounding guitars. you will not belive the difference. good luck, scott

What Epiphone model did I purchase?


Sounds like perhaps a Les Paul Special II, but more detail is needed to say for sure. There was a lot of variation in their Les Paul models. Posting a photo of both sides and the headstock is best.

-Has the guitar any binding, and what colour?
-Is the back of the guitar white or all black?
-Exactly what is on the front of the headstock, 'Epiphone', the 4-diamond logo, anything else?

I have an Epiphone Les Paul Custom Silverburst, and it's pretty new and has worked great until now. It seems my bridge pickup lost tone and volume for some reason. My volume and tone knobs are cranked...


Need more info: 1- does the volume control still change the level? 2-Does tone control still change the tone? 3- What happens when in the center position on pickup select switch? Put pickup switch in center position (both pickups active). Then take a coin and tap on the pickups. Does bridge pickup sound lower? Lastly remove rear electronics cover and inspect all wiring for something loose or disconnected.

Which knob does what on the epiphone les paul studio? there are 4 knobs and the only one i can figure out is volume.


I believe the top front is volume for the front/neck pickup...the top rear is for the rear/bridge pickup and the other two are tone knobs for the front and rear pickups.

HELP!


This is exactly how any 2 pickup, 2 volume, 2 tone, three way switch guitar would be wired from the factory. Best of luck!

Epiphone volume and tone controls


The controls should be setup in pairs (as long as the electronics haven't been modified. The two closest to the pickups are the volumes and the other two are the tone controls. The top knob set should be your neck pickup and the bottom set is for the bridge.

Schematics and wiring diagram for the typical les paul (sheraton) controls:
