Les Paul electrical issues

Post by kozmonot71 » April 12th, 2017, 4:21 pm

My 2014 Les Paul Traditional Pro 2 will only have less than half volume on the bridge pick up, when both pick ups are selected, both volume knobs effect volume, and the bad buzz when you are not touching the bridge. This guitar has push pull pots for coil tapping and a decibel boost circuit. I need an accurate schematic and I'm sure I could fix it. Unless someone can help here.

UPDATE; Last night at work I leaves togetherbenough info to verify it is wired right. I also put new batteries in my meter (DOH!) I have no ohm adjustment on the volume pot of bridge pick up. Full adjustment on neck volume pot. Later I'll probably pull one wire and ch cknagain to make sure. From what I gathered on the web the loud buzz is caused by the boost circuit. They said try pulling out the 9v battery and maybe some shielding. Kind of disappointing for $2100 brand new😠. Sure is pretty though

Why don't you go back to where you bought it and ask them to fix it under warranty? $2100 is a lot of money and they should want to fix it as a matter of professional pride.

I've moved a few times and changed jobs. The joint is a few hours away. Gibson wanted me to ship it to them but I didn't want to do that. I'll check with the place I got it and check options. I still have all papers
