77 Les Paul Deluxe wiring?


Recommended Posts

Hello all,


Can anyone tell me about the wiring for my 77 Gibson Les Paul Deluxe? It is not like

the standard classic Les Paul wiring? The control cavity has a metal plate on the

bottom that the pots are attached to! The ground wire from the bridge to the control

cavity is not there either. Normally you have a drilled channel from the cavity to the

bridge stud, then the ground wire is soldered on a pot? This plate also has in the middle

two connection points which looks like it may be some kind of a ground, and hot?

It looks like maybe a ground wire is coming from the toggle switch to that ground

point connection in the middle of the plate?


I think I would just rather tear this old crap out and install a vintage type of wiring

harness. I still would have a ground issue since there is no ground wire coming

from the bridge?


Thanks for your help.
