great vintage style wiring kit.

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I bought this to accompany an Aguilar pickup on a vintage style build. It's really great. I ended up replacing the orange drop cap with a NOS paper in oil capacitor, and I couldn't be happier. My only complaint was that one of the potentiometers was split shaft.

A good wiring kit for your instrument.

Works good, especially if you use their directions. I originally was using a Seymour Duncan diagram for this kit, and would not work properly.

I'm building a replica late 60's Pbass and this kit is perfect! (Short of finding original, second hand parts). Stew Mac everytime.

However, I'd like to see them do kits which include the pickup hookup wires and knobs as well. I think it's a bit cheeky that this isn't an added option.

This upgrade really rocks on my Squire p-bass. I got way better lows and smother mids.

A Game Changer!

I am a professional bass player who uses less expensive gear to gig. With less expensive typically comes lesser quality electronics. I did a swap on 2 of my Squier Precisions (1 Affinity & 1 P-Bass Special) and the improvement in tone with the stock pickups is incredibly noticeable. The tone is deeper and more full and the feel of the controls is just...well...better. I HIGHLY recommend this swap for anyone with a base model Squier. I would do this swap before changing pickups, you'll be VERY surprised and delighted with the new tone!

premium P-Bass wiring kit

I was given a 'Down the Basement Special" old 1997 Squier P-Bass which had been abandoned, forgotten and then found under a pile of debris and old boxes. It was a mess. I took it on as a project, and began with Stew Mac's Golden Age P-Bass Pickup and the premium wiring kit. The parts fit perfectly, the high quality of the CTS pots and the cloth push back wiring have been a delight to use. I had a lot to do to bring this bass back from the junk pile, but it's now a totally cool custom Bass that can hold its own onstage with the best of them. The combination of the Golden Age Pickup and this wiring kit gives a great sound through my Roland Cube 60 Bass Amp. Thanks StewMac...

I have been replacing every part of my Squier Precision Bass, and this was very needed. If you want a solid wiring kit and upgraded pots. buy this.

Quality

I bought an old Squier p bass to use as a backup which required a new jack and a new tone pot. I decided to buy this kit and connect it up to the existing pickup. I was concerned I might lose that p bass sound but I reckon the kit actually improved the sound even more. I had to drill the existing pot holes in the pick guard out a little more but that was easy. Good quality components. There's too much cheap and nasty trash out there for sale. Better to buy once.

EXCELLENT!

BIG improvement over the Chinese pots. If your bass doesn't sound right to you, consider a rewire before changing pickups. Very fast delivery to Australia I was shocked when the courier knocked on the door. Thanks StewMac!
