Different L1000 Wiring

Seeing as how we are fortunate to count Paul Gagon as a member here, it seemed like a good time to give him a home to stretch out in and relax a little. Maybe exercise the grey matter and present a little history of the guitar and bass (amps too!) from his perspective as one of the eminent designers of our time.

Got questions? Great! Good questions might be, "What kind of windings are on the S500 pickup and why?" Or, "What was the thought process behind the MJ-4?" Troubleshooting questions should remain in the regular forums (he reads those too). Finally, please be mindful of how I feel about tech questions via PM or email.

Different L1000 Wiring

Postby Southpaw » Mon Oct 23, 2017 6:58 am

I recently posted in the Wunkay Wuvers section about the 1981 L1000 I recently acquired and there was interest in its wiring schematic, as it is wired differently from the current schematic.
I believe the wiring appears to be original from the factory, please let me know your thoughts. Everything works great, so I will leave it alone. I believe Paul has mentioned there were variations in the early years, I'll leave the details to Paul and the other tech guru's. Also note, this is wired left handed. Thanks.
