Easy replacement for bad pots

By

Verified Buyer


Although I am somewhat of an amateur at soldering, I still wanted to do as little soldering as I could and this harness was the answer. It replaced the cheap Chinese pots and switch in an otherwise beautiful looking and playing Stratocaster and functions smoothly and reliably. It was easy to install and the quality of the wiring and connections is first rate. The components look like they are built to last. Highly recommended.

Impress Your Tech

Full disclosure, I installed this wiring harness on a Squire Bullet Strat at the same time I installed some Fender 57/62 pickups. The guitar sounds fantastic. How much is due to the wiring? The pickups? I dunno, but I love it. The harness arrived on a nice little wooden template ready to install. I had to drill out the holes for the pots (Note: put drill press on slow speed to avoid the dreaded spinning pick guard of doom). Everything fit and everything works. The best part? If I need to take this guitar to my tech, I can give my best Barney Fife shrug and respond, " yeah, that's my work right there". (sniff). I am really satisfied with everything I get from StewMac. Word? Spend the money on a membership. It's been less than six months since I joined and I've already saved the fee in shipping alone.

Just What I Needed

I was doing a new pickup assembly into a new pickguard using the new Gen4 Noiseless p'ups from Fender. I was unsure of my soldering skills and also didn't want to buy the parts separately. This fit the bill perfectly - the wooden template served to hold the components in place while I soldered in the p'up leads and it assembled onto the pickguard without a hitch! Well done folks!

Strat Wiring Kit

By

Verified Buyer


I have a 2010 USA Strat and the wiring was getting kind of funky inside from various pickup changes and such over the years. I was going to just rewire it piece-by-piece but when I started adding up the individual costs it turned out not to be that much difference over getting the harness pre-wired. I'm glad I did. The guys at StuMac to a real professional soldering job and the thing is just really, really clean. Its got everything you need and nothing more and it neatly fits in the strat body. The only add on I did was to tack on a treble bleed that I got from StuMac when I got the harness - I swear by the treble bleeds if you play out at all. All the harness parts are top notch and feel solid. I recommend it if you don't want to hassle with tacking one together from individual parts.

I am very pleased with this kit. I am not an experienced solderer, so this made it very easy for me to wire up my new strat. High quality kit and highly recommend it.

Nice setup

Great quality and price! I did have and issue with one of the pots. One of the three legs was bent in and touching another leg and the pot didn't seem to work. Once I inspected and found the issue, it worked great! Could have happened in shipping but wasn't a problem for me.

makes life simple

I got one for my strat when the switch got flakey.
It changed the whole voice of the guitar, much more clear.
The volume pot is very smooth with no tone loss.when you back it off.
I got a pre-wire from golden age a while back, for my tele , very pleased and easy to put in.
And I do wiring and set ups on guitars for a living at a guitar shop.
I recommend this to my customers a well

Really well made harness, the tones pots have a nice even sound when used and the action smooth.

-1 star for the lack ground wire to metal lug in body cavity had to solder an addtional ground from the neck tone pot and solder it to the small metal lug to get a proper grounding.
