    Late fifties inlay change of pattern on a P90 Les Paul. Notice the Large Frets and nibs. Large frets were thought to only come on late 58-59 Standards. UH AHH!

    Newb and amateur here .. so take it easy
    Can someone please explain why the "50's" harnesses depicted here don't appear to have 50's wiring layout for the bees, and also why the "50's" s/plate brackets don't have the "50's" slot head screw? Are these just examples of exceptions which prove the rule?
    Thanks.

    What rules are these? Have a look through "Beauty of the Burst" and count the proportion of slot head pickguard screws. With some of the people who have contributed to this thread, here would be a much better place to learn your rules that where you've been looking.

    Nice! Are those all from 1960, or did you have to buy from other years? If you got a set of PAFs, it would pretty much be the real deal.

    Also, the action looks amazingly low in that picture. It's too low for me. :laugh2:

    Having the capacitor on the centre lug of the volume pots is a fairly normal 50's wiring scheme. However when they did it this way round the signal from the pickup went to one end of the pot, and the signal to the selector switch came from the same place as the cap was hooked up.

    Already answered, but as far as I can see the cross head seems to have been more common even in the 50s.
