Good quality kit

(Customer's Reviews)

I decided my Tele needed some new electronics. I was actually surprised at how much this kit dug my '92 MIM Tele out of the mud! Easy upgrade as long as you know how to solder.


Great Kit

(Customer's Reviews)

This is a great kit. I consider myself a novice when it comes to guitar electronics and when putting together a parts telecaster, I was unsure on what capacitors to use, etc. This kit made life much easier. I might have saved a couple $ buying components independently, but the time it saved me was well worth it.


Big difference

(Customer's Reviews)

This was a big upgrade to what was inside my Japanese Tele. I didn't install this myself. The guitar luthier (paul unkert nj) that installed the kit said that something didn't fit (with the Japenese parts) but was able to make it work using a drill. I not sure what it was exactly but he got it in there and my tele sounds excellent!
