Question about Epiphone Dot Electric Guitar

1 Answer

I bought a used Epi DOT w/ 2 vol, t2 tone and a 3 way selector switch. The center position only activates the neck pup. I wonder if the switch is wired correctly. Do you have the color coded wiring diagram?

It sounds like your selector switch might be faulty. Here is the diagram:http://www.gibson.com/Files/schematics/Dot%20Studio%20sch.pdf

Please....I need a schematic for a guitar with 2 single coil pickups, 2 volume controls, no switches & no tone controls


Go to Seymour Duncan.com for the best listings of guitar schematics. Here's the link-

Wiring Diagrams

If you don't want the selector switch, just take the wire from each pickup that the diagram shows going to the selector and attach both to the positive leg of the output jack.

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.

I bought a yamaha electric it has two double pick ups and a single in the middle the volume knob was no good so i changed it when i opened it up they had the wiring all messed up it has a five pos. switch...


my guess is two positions at one end work(aka 1 and 2, or 4 and 5)? if yes, then 2 of the pickups are wired wrong. (if 1 and 2 work, which are the forward positions, then the middle and bridge pickup are wired wrong, etc.) the problem is there is a variety of 5way switches that are different. i would guess yours is "import" style. are there 8 lugs in a single row on the back of the switch? if yes, you probably have an import switch. best i can do in text is tell you that the middle two lugs are common. this means one goes to the volume pot, and there is probably a little jumper between the two lugs as well. now there are 3 lugs on either side of those 2 common lugs. one set of 3 will probably run to the tone pot in some fashion or be empty. the other set of 3 lugs is for the pickup lead wires. it sounds like at least one or two of those lugs are empty but shouldnt be, or are wired wrong. i cant tell you colors of your wires without seeing it, but this is how it should be, with the exception that the tone knob will probably be on the bottom 3 lugs somewhere. 1 would be the neck pickup, 2 the middle, and 3 the bridge hope this helps, feel free to post a pic of your wiring, etc xadioriderx.jpg

I did not get a manual with my Evo XM guitar and amp pack, and my experience with electric music making is limited at best, so here is my basic question; what are the functions of the two knobs and the...


I don't know precisely, but since it is a dual humbucker and only has 1 switch and 2 knos, the knob nearest the neck is probably the volume, and the other is the tone. The switch should select which pickup is in use, towards the neck for the neck or rythym pickup, and the other way for the bridge or lead pickup. If it has a centre click position, that will be both pickups on together. If one of the knobs has a pull position, that will likely be a single coil switch for the lead pickup.

I am looking for a manual (if there is one) for the Epiphone Sheraton II. I need to know which knobs do what (and also the three way switch) on the guitar. The guitar came with no manual!!


Most likely it is wired like most Gibsons. The volume knobs are the two at the neck end, the tones are the two nearest the rear. The lower two are volume and tone for the bridge pickup, the upper two are for neck pickup. Switch down is bridge or lead pickup, switch up is for neck or rythym pickup, and centre position is both pickups one, where all knobs can be used together.

Low volume on front pickup of Epiphone Les Paul


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
