    Hey everyone new here and need some help. I just installed the ZW EMG 81/85 solderless kit in my 2001 Epiphone Les Paul Custom and I followed directions to the T and even watched the install video. Now I go to test them and I get sound from BOTH pickups no matter what is selected on the switch and well as you all know that should not happen. Any ideas?

    Check the hub where everything plugs in again, it's about the only place something can get messed up on the Solderless sets. Make sure they're plugged in right and there's no jumper thats bridging the plugs.

    Also maybe shoot some closeup pics. I have one of these rigs in an Epi I use to test pedal builds so can cross reference with it if you cant find the issue.
