Does Gibson SG PCB fit Les Paul?

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking switching the pcb quick connect system in my SG to my Les Paul because I play the SG more and prefer the traditional method of soldering pickups as to not be limited to Gibson brand pickups.  Can this be done?

No. The shape of the PCB takes the whole bottom of the control cavity, thus PCB on an SG will not fit a LP and vice versa. Also pot positions, pickup toggle switch and jacks are in different places as well.

On that note...if I have an SG that has pcb board and I want to switch over to  old fashioned method ( I go purchase 4 separate pots )..can I use the existing pickups by clipping off the current connector and use the existing wires?

Yes, no problem.  You can also use a male disconnect ends  (like the ones that come with the early HP's case candy), and then wire them as you normally would.  That way you preserve the pups ends if you decide to sell them later 😉
