Thank you for choosing Gunstreet. below is the instructions for a 50s Wiring to be installed in your Les Paul Special.
Hot - (+) =Black Cloth
ground - (-) = Braided wire
If you are using a pickup with Gibson style Braided wire, you can make the install easier on yourself and your soldering iron. A lot of times when grounding your braided wire pickup it requires a lot of solder and an iron that can stay hot for long periods of time. which if you have a low wattage iron it is very difficult and frustrating to do. Luckily this trick is super easy. Just take your pickups braided wire and add a wire to the Braided part. This new wire is your new ground and since this is less of a surface area to install it requires less heat and solder!
