    Default Epiphone Les Paul output problem

    OK - my Epiphone Les Paul stop working so i discovered the soldering into the output jack had broken.

    Once i'd stripped the wire to re solder the wire is now not long enough to reach the connectors on the jack! Doh

    What options do i have here? Can a replace or extend the wire - looks like it connects to the bridge pickup or do i need a new pickup?

    Cheers

    Hey Leroy - If you have a solder, I believe you can replace the wire (if you have soldering experience)? If you do not, I would call a friend who has the know how. Or you can simply go to a local music store and the can fix you up in about 5 minutes. You should be able to save the pickup. Best CV

    One of the wires goes to one of the prongs on the volume pot. The other wire goes to the back of a pot for ground.
    Replacing the wire is a snap if you have a good iron and a little know how.
