Question about Epiphone Les Paul 100 Electric Guitar
Hi there. I am in the UK and just bought a 'new' black beauty on eBay. When I checked the serial number it was made in February 2008 at the Qingdao plant (EE080203240)
Could you tell me which pickups are selected by the 3-way switch please?
Finally, the two volume controls have very limited range - they turn the sound off when turned to zero, but then seem to reach full volume by position 2 on each knob, and only one of the tone controls seems to work, the other doing nothing.
I am very confused by all this and would be very grateful if you could advise me of your thoughts on what could be causing this.
Thank you in advance for your help.
The volume is a common problem ... Search for wiring diagrams for your guitar to find a better wiring. Or take it to a guitar repair centre to have it fixed.
To tell which pickups are selected with the switch if it doesn't have the little plate telling you, Turn one volume down and flick the switch one way so you can hear just one pickup.
Two ways of telling which one it is picking up ... A toppy tone is the one nearest the bridge ... a bassy tone is the neck pickup ... The middle selection on the switch is both coils selected ... If you cant tell by tone ... Tap the pick up and you'll soon hear which one you have selected.
