First Wiring Job

(Customer's Reviews)

Rewired my MIM Strat with this kit. This was the first time I wired a guitar from the pick guard up. I used Lace Sensors and a three way switch to split up the bridge dually. Didn't plan on rewiring it when I bought it but I thought it would be a waste to replace the pickups and keep the MIM wiring. The guitar sounds great and the three way switch for the bridge dually adds to the versatility of the guitar.


Very satisfied!

High quality components. A big improvement on the high frequencies and sound clearness. Recommended to all Strats holders.


First choice for quality

(Customer's Reviews)

I can buy these anywhere, but I only buy them at StewMac. For me, they provide the quality that I want for my guitars. If it isn't available here, I build it from parts purchased here.
