Brought my SG to life!

(Customer's Reviews)

I have a newer SG Standard with circuit board controls with 300k pots. I thought she sounded a bit sterile so I did some research online and purchased the Golden Age Harness. It fit perfect, the craftmanship is spot on and it really brought my guitar to life! More open,airy and more bite.Installation was easy and as long as you can do a little soldering it's well worth the investment!


Perfect upgrade

(Customer's Reviews)

The SG harness is very well made neat soldering. As it went into my Epi SG the fit was not 100% had to enlarge the holes for the pots jack and switch, and it was a really tight fit to get it in the control cavity. The result is outstanding!!! Sounds great!


Fantastic Sound and easy Installation

(Customer's Reviews)

I purchased a 2014 Gibson SGJ with the intent to upgrade the pickups. Stock are OK, but it wasn't doing it, so I ordered some Pearly Gates. When I opened up the control plate I saw a printed circuit board with tiny resistors and 250k pots. I was in a hurry and swapped the connectors to the new pickup leads, plugged in and... yuk! It sounded HORRIBLE!!

I knew the next solution was a hand-wired 500k set-up. That's when I came across this product. It seemed like it had all of the right components, and the price was great.

It arrived with ultra-perfect solder, and install was easy (NOTE- Follow the wire pairing from the pick up instructions but the install from the controls).

HOLY COW!! My $450 SG sounds like the best ones I've played. I bought this guitar purely as a kick-around, but it sounds good enough to record with.
