    Hi Folks.

    If I had hair I would have pulled it out by now.

    I bought this otherwise nice Epiphone 5120 bass (hollowbody - 2 humbuckers etc)

    Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this? I know a few of these bass are floating around the TB user pool.

    How is yours wired? I tried Gibson "50's style wiring" with 500K Audio Taper pots and .022mfd caps but something is just not right. I get volume only on full, if I turn CC it cuts off. Tone doesn't work at all. Here's a couple of pics:

    Any thoughts?


    Many Thanks!
    Erik

    Any owners out there?
    Could you tell me what the bottom (under-side) of your pickups look like?
    I bought this bass in a basket and I'm still fighting this.

    Please?

    You'll probably get more views and more feedback if you contact a moderator and ask him/her to move this thread to the Pickups and Electronics forum...
