Michael Withers Posted February 8, 2006 Report Share Posted February 8, 2006 I have just ordered some new EMG active pickups for my Les Paul copy to replace the dreadful stock pickups that are supplied with the guitar. And whilst I have the guitar in pieces I would to modify the volume controls....... Something that has always annoyed me about les pauls is the fact the guitar has 2 volume knobs and when both pickups are selected you cant independantly adjust the volume of each pickup. This would be of great use to me because I think the neck pickup on the LP is far 2 a overpowering tone in contrast to the bridge pickup. However, I do like the sound of the neck pickup but think it would be better at 1/2 the volume. If I could lower the volume of the neck pickup independantly of the bridge then this would be a good thing. Ive played around with pickup heights and managed to take the edge off the neck pickup and I would like to go a step futher by modifying the circuit so I can independantly adjust the volume of each pickup. Iam have little idea of electronic theory but I can solder well and read circuit diagrams as long as they are well written and diagramed... Can anybody help with this?
