I would share my experience to convert a Gibson SG 2014 modifying the original PCB with installation of 2 brand new CTS 500K push-pull pots. In this way the original circuit board is mantained and all the components too. No need to cut/replace the pickup connectors, because not really needed. Many people say that pcb and connectors sucks but I think it's not the truth. Anyway, mantaining in place all original components we will ever have the choice to change them later. Note that in order to remove the pcb from the guitar we don't need to remove the toggle switch. After removing the pcb, the conversion is made by these steps: unsolder and remove the 2 tone pots from pcb (this could result difficult without a desoldering iron or a desolder pump); drill two small holes near pickup connectors; thru these new holes, solder two thin yellow wires in the pcb each connected to the 'square' terminals of pickup connector plug (for each pickup); bend upwards the 3 terminals of each pot and cut the eyelets leaving maximum lenght in order to allow enough soldering lenght (see picture); solder the switch terminals of any pot: 'C1' to ground and '1' to new installed yellow wire.; mount the 2 new CTS pots and solder them to pcb. Pay attention to neck/bridge position. I used 2 tricks: first - to solder I keep the new pot in place pcb helping by screw it temporarily with his nut, second - I used a bare wire to connect C1 terminal to ground. The sequence is shown in pictures. The choice of the 2 CTS lies in the same footprint of genuine ones. I preferred to shorten the 2 small tab-pins of the pot because they keep height in the low cavity of SG to avoid of raise up too much the pot and lift the back cover plate. In this way is perfect. Let me know what you think.
