Hey! does anyone have the wiring guide for the epi ultra II. Im assuming its stilll 4 500k pots right? or is it all screwed up cuz of the nanomag pickup?
thats what i was just making sure cuz somebody told me that the wiring from the pickups is screwy haha thanks for your help anyway
I know this is an old thread, but just found out Shadow (Nanomag) sells JUST the Nanomag pickup as an aftermarket mod!
On their site, they have the wiring for the Nanomag, for those of us that want to change some things under the hood on our Ultra II's!

Hi All, and thanks for the info on wiring etc.
I've just got an Epi LP Ultra II, and I'm thinking about the switching issues. I've worked out a two-switch floor box that would allow me to switch between humbuckers and nanomag with one switch, and jump to all with the other switch. The LEDs will show me which I'd selected with the first switch (humbuckers or nano) while I've got both active. I'd also be able to set the first switch while both are on. For example, I'm in nano only, I could jump to both, preselect the humbuckers when I jump out of 'both' mode. If anyone's interested I'll post a picture.
Then I thought, how do you get practical switching between humbuckers and nano using a wireless transmitter (without using two transmitters!).
So now my idea is to remove the tone control and replace with a three way kill switch. In the middle position, all pups are active: setting to one of the other positions kills either the nano or the humbuckers.
.....'cos I don't like tone controls anyway. And the old trick of rolling off the neck tone to get the 'woman tone' then switching to the bridge pickup wouldn't work, because the tone control works on both HB pups so the bridge pup would be too tame perhaps.
....Sorry for the wordy entry people! If anyone's interested in my ideas, please let me know and I'll post pictures etc.
Hi again! I've had another look at the wiring diagram, and have a new idea.....I've got a suitable switch that I could mount under the scratchplate. One position, only HB's, middle all pups, other position only Nanomag. It would need only a bit of re-soldering on the output jacks, two lengths of shielded wire and a hole through the bridge pup surround to allow the wires to come out. The mod would be easily reversible (apart from the hole in the pup surround!) and would work whether I have one or two jacks inserted. I'll keep you posted!
