These are not user serviceable problems. Take it to a repair shop.

There are lots of online videos to watch to do this, that would be more helpful than reading how to do it.

Depending on condition and if all parts are original or not, there are variables. If all original, 125 is less than half of what a new one costs.

Epiphone is a budget conscious gibson. And probably not made in the USA.
1957 - Gibson's parent company, CMI, buys Epiphone for $20,000, originally intending to harness its upright bass operation, but ultimately reviving the Epiphone name on guitars. A full line of newly designed acoustics and electrics is unveiled in 1958, and two years later Epiphone production moves into Gibson's factory in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

1970 - In the face of foreign competition, Epiphone production is moved to Japan. Through the 1970s and early '80s, the Epiphone line has little continuity, although it maintains respect as a quality import brand.

1983 - Epiphone production is moved to Korea.

1986 - Henry Juszkiewicz, David Berryman and Gary Zebrowski acquire Epiphone and Gibson. The Epi line is soon expanded to include traditional models like the Sheraton, Emperor and Howard Roberts, along with Epi versions of Gibson classics like the Les Paul, Flying V and Explorer.

Not on all the guitars. My advice is to play the one you are planning on purchasing before buying it.

Epiphone Les... | Answered on May 04, 2014

Yes, the pickups can be changed.

However; In my opinion this is not worth it. Pick up a pair of aftermarket pickups for a better sound that will fit your playing style.

I take it you have made sure that both the cable to the distortion box from the guitar and the cable to the amp are both good. From the description you give, it sounds like there is no signal getting to the pedal. If the cable is good, then the next likely suspect would be the input jack on the fuzz box. Try wiggling it a little with the guitar cable in place to see if it is loose. Some input jacks are unbelievably cheap and flimsy. A crackling sound (static like) is almost always a bad connection. If it was the output jack, I would think that the guitar signal would come through a least a little bit, but you might want to try wiggling that one, too, if the input jack isn't the culprit.

Another possibility to check is the battery, but this doesn't seem as likely. Some effects units devour batteries, especially units that use 9V batteries. I have a multi effect pedal that kills a 9V in about an hour.

Could you please be more specific? I'm not sure if you're looking for a wiring diagram (if so, I have one posted below), or if you're having a problem with grounding or other wiring issues.


The above link is a wiring diagram for bass guitars that closely match the one you are asking about.

Hope that helps!

Or a bad solder connection on the ground wire on the jack, or shell/sheild on the guitar.

Here is the list you seek.

A buzz on one string is not due to a pickup fault. It's rather a too low string height at the nut or a string slot that is either too wide or has too deep of an angle towards the tuner. It could however be that you had the pickup too close to the high E string creating excessive string pull.

This is a common problem... Make sure your amp is plugged into a three wire grounded receptacle. Keep the guitar away from magnetic fields of transformers in amps and effects units. Make sure you have a high quality guitar cable.

Amazing guitar!

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find the specialized plug you need. Being 1 out of less than 400, it is doubtful that they are still being made. However; any decent music shop will be able to repair your old plug.

I have a Burns Sonic 1962. It has a complex "quirky" parallel/series wiring circuit with 3 pots, 2 switches and 2 Burns Tri-Sonic pickups. 2b4fdbd.jpg

if the problem is only on the neck position it would seem that the switch or the pick up wiring is faulty. a little bit of WD40 on the selector switch will sort if the swtch is gone ...if you take the switch out and check the solder on the connections at the rear of the switch you may see the wire loose or solder point faulty.. just a dab with a solder iron should sort here.. you may need to resolder the connection.
