Cannot figure out LP Special II wiring!


Recommended Posts

The first guitar I ever bought ( a '97 LP Special II)  has been sitting in the closet, stripped of its parts, for a couple years now.  I'm in the middle of replacing pickups in a Gretsch , and figured I'd have some fun and put the old pups in the Epi.  Most of the wiring is intact, but I can't find a wiring setup *anywhere* that matches what I have (attached).

I'm assuming that the pot with the capacitor is the tone pot (left), and would have the following leads to attach / re-attach to the diagram below:

Output Jack (1 lead)

Ground (2 leads, G1 and G2)

Neck Pickup (2 leads, N1 and N2)

Bridge Pickup (2 leads, B1, and B2)

Thanks for that, that still doesn't match what I have, but it gets closer to anything I have seen so far...  Based on what I have in hand, I think I will end up with this:



This is for a LP Special II, they don't come much simpler..

which wiring diagram did you use? The one Mihcmac shared, or the one you responded with? I just rewired mine and it plays sound but vol and tone not really working...not sure if I have overheated the pots...
