New P'ups for a Semi-Hollow

Recommended Posts

I'm replacing the pickups in my Epiphone Sheraton II. Anyone know the best way to remove/replace existing electronics through that tiny F-hole access? I'm swapping out both pickups, the volume and tone pots and the (worthless) 3-way pickup selector. Not sure how this is done at the factory, at a repair shop, and especially not at my "luthier's bench...," as it were. :D

After you take the knobs off tie a long string to each of the posts of the pots as you take the retaining nut loose. You can tie the other ends of the string together to keep them from slipping through the holes. Then when you fish them out through the F holes just reattach the new pots to the string and pull it back to the hole. Same for switches.
