Just been trying to do the 'Jimmy Page' 4 x push,pull pot wiring to an ES135.
Right pain in the 'f holes' ! Limited access as its a thinline too. Anyhoo, i now gotta' make a couple of treble bleeds for the volumes to work fully, but more annoyingly, i got a grounding problem or two. Firstly, there is a lot of hum unless i touch metal, but everything is earthed. A quick web search shows that this can occur often in L.P.s, but no real solutions found yet. Also got a Bigsby trem which is some kinda' alloy that i cant earth which probably means i gotta' ground the bridge somehow - via the effing f holes ! arrrgggghhhhhh...
Any tech heads got suggestions ?
Think i pretty much sorted this now. The bigsby has some protective film/lacquer applied, and once some was removed at the tail piece where the ground wire attaches, i had a good earth. This in turn reduced the hum considerably,still not 100% perfect, but i guess not bad for an archtop that cant easily be shielded. Just gotta' fit the treble bleeds and stuff the guts back in and it'll be ready to rawk.
Note the alternate tuning - heavy top/heavy bottom !!
