Very satisfied!

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

First choice for quality

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.

Great kit!

The potentiometers operate smoothly and evenly, and the other components were of very good quality. I was pleased, as they met my expectations.

Great product

Used this to replace all the electronics in my MIM Fender Strat. I noticed an immediate and significant improvement in treble, touch sensitivity and clarity. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has an import guitar with questionable quality Asian made electronics.

Good quality switch and pots. Wire length properly sized. I recommend this product!

Quality and economical

I bought this kit for a strat i'm building. In the past i bought the harness pre built. Not any more. These are quality parts and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to complete the harness. Consider getting the Emerson cap with this build if you prefer the warmer tones.

Strat Wiring Kit

By Rod Jacobs from Indianapolis, IN
(Customer's Reviews) Sunday, March 24, 2013

I was happy with 95% of my strat build parts I ordered, except for a couple of things. This kit contained a ceramic cap that was absolutely tiny! The .047 cap in the kit was way too small to work with. With the exception of the .047 cap and the weak screws for the string trees I installed, everything else was great. The guitar I built sounds good. (Premium kit)

Come on Stewmac!

By Sander from Troms++, Norway
(Customer's Reviews) Saturday, March 23, 2013

The package looked good at first, but when I tried to turn the volume pot before soldering it in, it was way worse than anything i've ever found on 100$ guitars. The rest of the kit were of good quality, though a few extra inches of push-back wire wouldnt hurt.

nice smooth pots

By chris smith from chardon, ohio usa
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, February 15, 2013

Nice smooth pots.The push back wire is great! one pot fell apart when i was putting the knob on but I was able to put it back together I decided to swap it with a TBX tone control anyway to go with the Eric Clapton mid boost.When you put the knob on you might need to squeeze the shaft of the pot together a little or it might fall apart like mine did. The problem with the pot was my fault NOT STEW MAC! Order this kit,and you won't be disappointed!
