When my beat up old Tele started acting up I was hesitant to take it to my local
mega guitar mart as the teck was younger than my axe. I picked up Tim's Telemaster
Book. What an eye opener. When my buddy wanted to mod his Les Paul
I told him before you pick up a screw driver to check under the hood you need to
get a copy of Tim's The New Gibson Les Paul and Epiphone wiring diagrams book.

This book will set you free. I had a good understanding of the basics of wiring
but this book lays it out so effortlessly I would tell anyone with a Les Paul style
guitar this is book is indispensable. Even helped me with my Rick 360 setup.

Simply loaded with no-BS descriptions of How and Why pickups and the associated
electronics function together to make a great sounding Guitar. Where else can
you read about the theory and winding setups of multiple pickups and go the a website and
listen for yourself before you blow you hard earned dough on a new setup. Also If
you were thinking about messing with splitting your humbuckers and what you can do with them
with a little switch magic, again there is even a link to the demo sounds before you
even pickup a parts catalog to order.

When I decided the time was right to get a Les Paul, I had to purchase one for myself.

If you're looking for a pictorial reference guide to help you get a better understanding of Les Paul wiring, then this book serves its purpose. I would have preferred for the book to be in color and not have to refer to the downloaded version but that's a minor issue as the value of the info is still valid. As a guitar electronics tech, I encourage people to learn about their guitar and the possibilities available. This book helps you unlock your guitar's potential.

I had looked at many books regarding the subject and found the Les Paul book the most descriptive in regards to guitar wiring models. It had generic plans for all makes. All the books had info that was informative but not as in depth as this one. The book covered subjects from A to Z. I wish the diagrams were in schematic form though, but they were easy to understand. Very good book.

This book is essential to the Gibson enthusiast. With just this text you can go from being clueless about the electronics of your Les Paul or SG to a sought after expert among your friends. You'll be able to do everything from find a loose solder or explain to your friend just how to setup and wire a split humbucker on his Les Paul Standard all the way to advising a friend or client on what pots they should buy. Don't know what a pot is? THIS book will explain it- in GREAT detail.

When you buy one of Tim's books, you can always expect to get two very important things: 1. a book with a tremendous amount of highly relevant information (which will instantly classify you as an expert), and 2. a book with TONS of full-page photos and illustrations - helping to explain his ideas and concepts. And, this is book is no exception. At 250 pages, and with big photos and/or illustrations on every page, Tim makes learning seriously EASY. But, keep in mind - this book is not just for beginners; it's for anyone who wants to wire their 2-humbucker guitar - and to learn about plenty of options on alternative configurations.

If you have to buy just one book on wiring, I highly recommend Tim's book, THE NEW GIBSON LES PAUL AND EPIPHONE WIRING DIAGRAMS BOOK. Not only do I recommend it to you, the potential customer, but I recommend his books to ALL of my Paint Your Own Guitar customers. -- John Gleneicki, Author - The Paint Your Own Guitar Book Series

Hello fellow guitar nuts....hm
I bought this as a present for a friend, as I'm not a Les Paul fan....!!!!sorry sorry...no offense to Les Paul, may he rest in peace, but I'm a Tele hollic !!
However..my friend is suddenly, my new best friend, this book is awesome, so easy to follow and do, no need for an engineering degree to do it, simple step by step
so good....maybe...one day I will have a Les Paul, just kidding, go and buy this, you will love it!
All these books from Swike are serious good value for money, more so extreme helpful in the pursuit of good guitar tone, not for the coffee table, its straight to the workshop !

Okay, while I still don't much care for the printed version of this book upon further review, I finally found the e-version which was included. That has everything I need. So, while I like the e-version, I still find the printed version to be less than satisfactory. I won't be returning it, but people should be aware that the printed version isn't nearly as useful as it could be.

When a book refers to color diagrams, it should actually have color diagrams, not black and white. This book is practically worthless as is because every page refers to "the color diagram below", etc. but all pictures are poorly reproduced in black and white. They aren't even scaled properly. When reduced for print, some photos are stretched and flattened.

So, I'll give the e-version 4 stars, the print version 2 stars. Average of 3.
