Hello hoping someone can help me. I recently picked up a 2nd hand Usg50 3 humbucker its a lovely guitar to play but I have noticed something interesting. The volume pots are acting like on off switches rather than volume pots . did some investigating and the middle pickup is wired straight to the 3 way switch. I removed this pick up from the equation (wired with just the bridge and neck pickups) and lo and behold the volume pots started acting like they should. Can anybody help me / give me the correct wiring diagram for this model ?
Cheers
Stew.

I would personally go for the dead simple 50's wiring:

Duncan doesn't seem to have the triple pickup LP wiring diagram.

Here's an old one from Gibson:

Unfortunately it's in electrical form rather than a physical wiring diagram.
