1968 Les Paul Correct wiring

Recommended Posts

Hello Folks,

I have found several answers to my question, which is the problem. Photos of actual specimens are tantalizingly unclear due to the necessary angle of the camera and the position of the wires as they approach the pot lugs.


I am certain about the connections to the volume pots, but the capacitors seem to be soldered to the center or the counter clockwise lug of the tone pots. Some wiring diagrams call the center one 50's, others call it modern. My instrument is soldered to the center lug, but it has been tampered over the years and has become unreliable as a correct example.


Does anyone know if the 68 reissue was wired Modern or like the 50's schematics?
