Gibson L.P. standard wiring problem

Postby hotguit on Mon Oct 11, 2010 12:06 pm

Hi, hi have a little problem with my Gibson L.P. standard wiring.
I bought this Gibson about 6 years ago and it worked perfectly; it ha two WCR crossroads pick ups and a modern wiring.
yeterday i decided to make the 50s wiring and i noticed that the wiring was not a modern one; it was an hibryd, or better it was not a "standard" wiring.
The neck pick up's tone pot has pins 2 and 3 tied togheter and the pin 2 had a mop of stain linking the pin and the steel plate (ground)
well, i replaced that wiring with the 50s one and changed the caps with two papaer in oil 0,022 caps.
Now problems begin: with a standard 50s wiring the neck pick up does not work alone at all and the guitar sound in bridge and midle position only.
The only way i found to make the neck pick up working is to LINK tone pot's pins 2 and 3 togheter (like the "original" wiring i found); but even in this case the neck pick up's tone does not work at all.
Who can help me? How can i restore the tone functions
I upload an atttachement of the wiring scheme i used.
Thank you
hot
