50s Les Paul wiring diagram - easy wiring diagam for 50s style Les Paul

Currently working on a new DIY guitar project? Or are you a little stumped and cautious when it comes to wiring a guitar and operating a soldering iron? A lot of guitarists baulk at the idea of wiring their own guitar mainly due to fear of damaging the guitar or making a mess of the components inside. Fear not. Practice makes perfect.

Our aim is to make it as easy as possibe for you and to give you the confidence to dive in. Here you'll find a selection of guitar wiring diagrams covering some of the most popular wiring setups in electric guitars ranging from the classic to the more exotic, from the stock factory wiring to popular wiring mods for the Les Paul, Stratocaster and Telecaster amongst others.

They are incredibly easy to read and were designed with beginners in mind. They are all in colour and provide a list of what components you need as well as what goes where! The components used are available for purchase in our guitar electronics section. There are also a few walk through video installation guides for our most popular kits and products including some common guitar wiring mods to help you make the most of your guitar. If you play bass, we have bass guitar wiring diagrams too.
