For a guitar you care about

(Customer's Reviews)

I recently bought a '78 Ibanez Musician, a beautiful guitar and a dead ringer for the first guitar I ever bought with my own hard earned money as a teenager. It was poorly rewired with the cheapest pots and switch - it just deserved better. This kit is great, as long as you are acquainted with cloth wire and vintage shielded. It looks great if I do say so myself. And really, the Switchcraft switch is truly superior. However, I discovered upon installation that I had to choose between the premium kit and the original Ibanez Knobs, which fit Alpha pots. So I got some Gibson knobs; no harm done.......Five Stars!!!


Huge Difference!!

(Customer's Reviews)

I used this kit to re-wire my 2012 Gibson American Standard SG which came with 300k pots and cheap film capacitors. The jack was always spotty from the factory and the guitar always sounded much duller than I thought it should for an SG with BurstBuckers. These 500k pots and orange drop caps make a TREMENDOUS difference! The sound is so much more open and clear and soulful. This is by far the best upgrade for your SG!!
