Strat harness A-1

By Bruce Grilli from Golden Valley, AZ

This harness turned out to be exactly what I was hoping for. The pots have some torque/resistance to turn, the wiring is clean, soldering perfect, and parts are top notch. Nothing was left out and my '08 American Standard is completely rewired the way I want it (to match the new pickups). I wanted to move the bottom tone pot to the bridge pickup and there was more than enough length to make that easy mod. I'm very happy with the other items also and will leave a review for those. The guitar sounds great and controls are crisp and precise. I'll be getting a Tele harness in the not too distant future. Customer service was also very impressive. Thanks, Stewmac!

I used the body from a MIM strat for my first partscaster. The harness dropped in without a hitch and sounds great with custom shop pickups.

High Quality and Exactly What I Needed

By Michael M from Arlington, VA

I had been wanting to try out some different pickups in my '97 Fender Stratocaster Ultra for years, but I also wanted to keep the original pots, wiring, and pickups intact. This meant installing an entirely new pick guard assembly with wiring, pots, pickups, knobs, screws. etc.

Because the wiring portion has always given me a hard time, I was hesitant to buy all the parts individually to solder it myself. Enter the Golden Age Pre-Wired Harness. It was exactly what I was looking for. High quality parts, nice wiring, perfect soldering job, and the peace of mind knowing if I have any issues, StewMac will be there to help.

As I'm not really a handy man, this was the perfect kit for me. It was easy to install and the price difference was worth every penny. Thank you StewMac!
