Starting with the lower aft knob (the one closest to the input jack) and moving clockwise, the controls are as follows:

Tone Control for the Bridge Pickup,

Tone Control for the Neck Pickup,

Volume Control for the Neck Pickup,

Volume Control for the Bridge Pickup.

The switch (usually located on the upper horn if you're playing a Les Paul) is used to switch between the pickups.

Hope this was helpful!
