If when you touch the strings it pops, it is problably a bad ground to the bridge or tailpiece. I am not sure about Gibsons but their should be a wire going from the pots to the bridge/tailpiece thru the body. If you have an ohm meter check cont. from one to the other.


Yeah, you can see it in this picture.

Upper left of the control cavity, bare nickel wire to the right of the braided wire.

If the bass is too much, you may want to try a different value capacitor. Try a 0.015µF capacitor in the neck position and a 0.022µF in the bridge. It won't really lower the bass response, but it will allow the treble to shine through a little bit more, possibly offsetting the bass. Right now I have a 0.022µF in the neck and a 0.047µF in the bridge. The 0.047µF is a little too "dark" sounding for me, so I may swap it out with a 0.035µF if I can.

Check to see that all of the wires are properly connected/soldered. Can you take pictures of the inside of the cavity? That might help.

If you want to put '57 Classics in there, you're going to want to get 500k pots. Humbuckers generally go with 500k pots while single coils (except P90s) generally go with 250k pots. As for capacitors, I have paper in oil capacitors in all of my guitars. They sound better than those cheap ceramic caps that most guitars come with, but don't be fooled into thinking that they are gonna make your guitar into a whole new guitar as many people will have you believe. As for switches, Switchcraft jacks and switches are probably the best. Gibson and Fender both use them I believe, and pretty much any repair shop uses them. If you order from RS, I'm fairly certain they will supply you with Switchcraft.

If you want to learn to do it yourself, get yourself a good soldering iron and find a diagram. It's pretty self explanatory. Some people have an easy time wiring up guitars, but I don't. I always pay to have it done because my hands shake so it's hard to solder properly. Best of luck and have fun!

GFS sells kits as well as Mojo Tone. I know the guys at RS and they do great work and give good advice. One of their employees does all my setup work for me. I'm hoping he'd teach me how to setup the different kinds of guitars. 57 humbuckers and one of the RS electronic upgrades would put you in a guitar that rivals the sound of the GIbson Custom Shop model. Gibson doesnt put in super high quality electronics in anything they make. Their premium pickups rock with upgraded pots and caps though. I have an Epi Les Paul with 57 classics in it and the RS vintage kit.
