About This Item

These kits make it easy to order premium components for wiring your Gibson® Les Paul® guitar or bass, or other 4-control / 2-pickup guitar with a 3-way switch.

Bought this for a 2012 epiphone les paul. I knew I was gonna need some slight modification to make the pots fit. But the toggle switch they send will not fit on an epiphone. You need the short shaft switch.

Oscar Schmidt upgrade

Used the Les Paul wiring kit to improve the electronics on a Oscar Schmidt 0E-40. Sound improved dramatically. Great quality parts though for this application one should order more shielded cable.

Great quality parts

The parts quality is very nice and the sound after completing the wiring is beautiful.
A novice might have some trouble with the wiring diagram depending on pickups etc.

it would help if you used color on you wiring schematic. just black and white it is much more difficult to follow. not very helpful for such an tedious task

Les Paul Premium Wiring kit

By

Verified Buyer


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.
