it is wired the same just without the ground plate. i think the ground plate wasn't used since the production of the custom moved to the custom shop.

The only thing that seems a little unusual is that terminal strip on the tone pot. Other than that it looks pretty straightforward.

I've noticed in the middle position if one of the volume pots is off you dont get any sound they both have to be dialed in

that's normal on all les pauls with regular stock wiring.

you didn't notice that on your other les pauls?

That’s normal. BTW, it one point in the past, they regularly used those tiny caps. This is the tone cap in my 82 Fling V.

My 92 custom and 2006 both sound in the middle position with one volume dialed in I was so curious I double checked them.
