Les Paul Custom 3 pickup wiring mods


Recommended Posts

I've got a '76 natural finish that I altered the wiring on. The current bridge p'up is a Duncan JB and the neck a Duncan '59 (I'm a frequent p'up changer though, never buy second hand from me...). I've got the middle pickup (original T-top) wired to the rythym side of the switch and to the neck volume and tone pots and it's dropped as low into the body as I can get it with out the screws coming out of the base.

The middle position now sounds like more like a Telecaster than anything, very usable indeed.


I'm assuming this is quite a common mod for folk to do, and I was wondering if anybody had changed the middle p'up for something else and what results they got.
