    Luke 3 HH wiring problem

    Hi everyone!

    I have an 2013 Olive-gold HH Liii wich is perfect in every way, but yesteday a little accident happened..
    The GREEN WIRE from the NECK pup went off it's pin.

    So i am asking somebody that has the same model to take some pics of the electronics compartment so I can fix the green wire back in place...

    Anyone?

    Looks like someone has rewired it at some point. I'd email the Customer Service folks (link in my signature) and ask them to send you a wiring diagram. (Sorry, I don't have that one handy.)

    I allready wrote to the customers service but there was no reply,... that's why i'm writing here...

    The modification was only made on the push-push pot (no changes were made on the selector switch wiring)

    They're probably a little slow with NAMM coming up. Hopefully someone else can help you out here.

    I have the wiring diagram from 1-10-2012 but not sure if it's ok to post it here. Also, I'm not sure when EBMM changed the boost and wiring in the LIII so my guess is that the diagram I have is for the very first version of the LIII.

    Ya know, I don't know if there was ever direction of posting wiring diagrams but send it by PM or exchange emails. The wiring for the bridge pickup may be the same for switch, irrespective of any change in boost.

    Problem solved!��
    I just got a reply from the customers service. They sent me the diagrams both for HH and HSS. A minute of soldering and the lady is back on the stage��

    Thanx anyway guys��

    However i dont think the diagrams are different for the first or latest models. The connections between the pups and the switch are the same. The difference is on the preamp itself.

    I did the modification myself and moved the push-push swithch from tone pot to the volume pot.
    It's amazing how much more the guitar feels handy and practical (as the tremolo bar was allways in nthe way when I wanted to hit the pot)
