    Default Help with Dual Coil Epi Les Paul

    Can someone please post a real picture of the wiring for a dual coil? I bought some distortion pups but after hours of searching I have not found a picture of one that matches what I have. Mine seems to be a solderless plug.
    Please see the attached picture; this is what my LS has. THANKS.Name:  P1012018.jpg

    Welcome to the forum.

    The components in your photograph are the current standard Epiphone two vol., two tone wiring harness. The PCBs on the tone pots feature a push-pull switch for coil splitting and a socket to accept the corresponding block connectors found on current Epiphone Pro pickups.

    But since the duncan pups don't have a socket were would i solder the wires? Can anyone please provide a picture?

    Do you have the original pups that came with that harness? If so, you can trace the wires from the pups to the terminals on the tone pot P/P switches.

    If you don't have the original pups, you could either contact Epi CS or use a multimeter to map out the connections on the P/P switches.
