I just got done installing a push/pull wiring harness. Bought the quick connect pigtails, and the pickups to go with the quick connects to hookup up to volume pots. Plugged it in, and only get sound on the treble side of the 3 way toggle switch. Would anyone have an idea of what I am overlooking?

Ok make sure you connections are good. Unplug the toggle and plug it back in. Everything look correct so just go back over your connections...

Do you think that I could have the pickups wires and the quick connect wires crossed? I got the pickups from Amazon and the quick connects from eBay. I wired like Seymour Duncan does.

I have her singing again, and sounding better than new... I followed that top diagram. Come to find out... I switched the quick connects around, and did some work on the three way toggle switch....

Thank you... If I could get the 3 way toggle switch to cooperate, and the low E string to stay off the frets after the 12th fret. I would be a happy camper. It's a brand new toggle switch off eBay from China I believe. I'm going to see if I can swap parts from the original one. To fit the new. I'll figure it out though. The beginning of Bubba Lee Electronics Repair. I would much rather build basses. This Chinese Les Paul has given me the blues.

This Chinese made Epiphone Les Paul came with 2 wire humbuckers. I had to buy new four wire humbuckers and quick connects.
