    62 sg standard 50s

    62 gibson sg junior

    if the tone 1 lug was hooked direct to the vol

    wiper lug would it be 50s wired with piggy

    back cap the tone to me should only be

    removed from the wiper not the source before

    it gets to the wiper
    or the cap hooked to tone 1 lug ran to vol

    wiper then ground wiper lug to back of pot

    leaving the vol source lug open for just the

    pup +

    your thoughts on this?

    i was researching for '62 SG Standard stock
    wiring for a "rewire" im starting this winter with Jonesy
    ended up more a history of sorts
    they are all stock setups as far as i could gather
    i hoped that spirit would come thru
    im going with 50s as in '62-'63 it was stock as far as i can tell
    no metal plate

    research source was here

    1962 SG

    now here we arrive
    from '53 GoldTop through juniors toward '71 SG deluxe
