Les Paul Premium Wiring kit

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I have 1992 Les Paul Studio and the pickup switch broke. As I looked at replacing it I found that over the years the old wiring got shorter, to the point that it would no longer reach where it needed to go. This kit was just what I needed. And better yet my guitar sounds like a new instrument now.

Worth Every Penny !

Kit was used to upgrade an Epiphone Les Paul Classic.
After install, it's like owning a brand-new guitar. No comparison, the guitar sounds completely different. Tone and volume are both "clean" - not "muddy" - from 0 to 10.

Some modification to the guitar is required. Be prepared to drill out the original holes in the guitar body as the old pot shafts are smaller diameter. The "short shaft" pots worked perfectly. Be sure and order replacement knobs - as the old knobs fit the smaller pots and not the new ones.
Plenty of extra wire is included with this kit. It comes with competent instructions and requires only minor skills and the usual attention to detail. Somebody really thought this one through. Great offer Stewmac !

Pair this kit with a new set of pickups and you'll have a winning combination.

Lawsuit LP Custom Black Beauty a new Guitar

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I have a 70's lawsuits-era Japanes Les Paul Custom (Black Beauty). It played OK but....at first, I thought the humbuckers were the problem. Then I read up and realized I had the wrong pots (250K) and caps (0.047uf). So I shot the works with the premium wiring kit. One miss reading the 3-way switch wiring diagram, my bad not S-M's, and it now sounds literally like a different guitar. The missing treble is there but not overwhelming. Sustain until tomorrow if you want it. And as much punch as you can use.
