Today, 06:54 PMAnd I liked the way the original L6S 6-position switch provided all possible ways of wiring a pair of humbuckers...
I'd prefer the old wider Schaller-based bridge that was on the original L6s for its additional mass and additional range of intonation setting.
...popular with the likes of Santana on the original L6s...
Looking at the lit for the new L6S reissue, it sounds like they eliminated the out of phase settings and added some single-coil settings. Bummer.
...but initially I'm disappointed.
...figure out what I just bought without trying one out.
Gibson sure distributed the schematic for the original L6S.
It just goes to show that a re-issue never really is the same.
Be aware this reissue is not the original wiring.
So why didn't you just buy a 70's original? There are no less than five of the 70's "standard" models on e-bay right now, and they're selling for well under a grand!

Get off the internet and go to the library (or a BOOK STORE, remember them?). There are tons of legitimately published books on the history of Gibson guitars and their ID. Go BUY one!
