Guitar center and most guitar stores have them, hell most people go to the stores and just take them off the displays when they play them. Guitar center replaces them though so no problem.

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.

My westfield e4000 les paul when plugged into anything doesnt work unless its switched to my bridge pickup and turned to 8 volume or lower


chances are that the contacts in the pick up switch and or volume / tone controls have got dirty over time and are not making good contacts.
The 3 position toggle switches in most budget Les Paul copies are prone to failure - only making contact on one position as the springs get weaker - you could try unscrewing the back plate and examining what is happening in the switch.
Try rotating the volume and tone knobs vigourously to and fro - if this produces a crackling sound the contacts are dirty - further rotation will clean them a bit but a little squirt of switch cleaning spray will help too.
Other than that it could be dry solder joints anywhere on the back of the switches and knobs or poor contact inside the jack socket

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.

Epiphone Black Beauty controls don't seem to work properly


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.

Great guitar, **** elrctronics. want to put '57 gibson classics


You wont need new tone caps and the wiring will not need to be replaced even if you are installing new 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.
