Sounds Great!

(Customer's Reviews)

Sounds great! Easy to follow instruction. I didn't read the pot specs. My fault. Requires a set-screw knob. Not a big deal. Will just have to buy knobs on my next order.


Great kit

(Customer's Reviews)

Excellent quality with clear instruction! Love it!


A great upgrade

(Customer's Reviews)

I wired this kit into my "Tele-style" along with the Golden Age Pickups. The sound is strong, very clean, and bang-on the real tone. I highly recommend this kit for anyone looking to do a proper Tele rebuild, you will not be disappointed with the quality. Incredibly happy I came to StewMac first.
