Les Paul/SG “Jimmy Page” Style Wiring Harness – Push/Pull Pots – “Orange Drop” Caps – 21 Different Switching Positions!


You bring the talent. We’ll supply the kick ass wiring…   


Hoagland Custom, located in sunny Fernandina Beach, Florida, has specialized in custom guitar wiring and pickup making for almost 30 years…

& we love what we do!

Let us start off by saying that you must have 2 humbuckers for this harness and they each must be splittable. That is, they each must have at least 4 conductors(wires).

This wiring mod, popularized by Led Zeppelin & The Yardbird’s great Jimmy Page, gives your Les Paul or SG style guitar a multitude of new tones not available with the stock wiring including the normal 3-way humbucker switching, Strat-like single coil tones, out-of-phase tones, and the huge sounding Broadbucker tone.  All made possible through coil splitting, series/parallel switching and phase-reversal.

Push-pull potentiometers make this switching possible without the need of drilling any new holes in your guitar.  Now your knobs will each have a dual function; adjusting volume or tone when twisted and providing switching options when pushed or pulled.  Installation process takes about 30-45 minutes.

The toggle switch is an option with this harness. Our reasoning is that, if you didn’t need it, we didn’t want to charge you for it.

There’s a great article in Premiere Magazine’s “Mod Garage” :  https://www.premierguitar.com/diy/mod-garage/jimmy-page-wiring

Due to the complexity of this wiring harness, we DO NOT alter it in any way.

This “Jimmy Page” wiring harness features 21 different switching positions!
