Not a bad kit. However, CTS pots and orange drop caps would be better. Also not impressed with the switch. This kit is good for Epiphone upgrades but I would Not recommend using this kit on a actual Gibson guitar.
the components are all top quality (although the Switchcraft toggle switch would have been better). The wiring instructions are mediocre, especially since I was wiring a two volume, one tone setup. Had to find a third party source for a wiring diagram.
Installed kit into a Tokai Vintage Les Paul. Not bad components for the price and easy to install. Also replaced pickups for the Golden Age Humbuckers and this guitar is now one my favourites, sounds awesome, such a range of tones avail...from almost a clean Tele-Caster sound to warm and even angry Les Paul monster tones.
The quality of the pots was less than impressive. The switch was really good. The wiring was less than generous. I will be ordering better components from elsewhere. Thanks for the lesson.
I installed this kit with a matched set of DiMarzio PAF humbuckers. That combination did not give me a good JP sound. I switched to the StewMac Parsons Street Golden Age humbuckers, with russian PIO .015mFd tone caps, and now I have a TONE MONSTER, with so many tone choices, that I never get bored.
This is a fairly good kit and works ok but the quality of the control pots is a little less than I had hoped. It would be nice if they would offer an upgrade to the pots. I would be willing to pay a little extra for a more solid and quieter sounding control to install in my custom guitars and for upgrade to customer guitars. Seems that "pro" players notice these right away. However the kit is packaged well and the rest of the kit is of good quality, instructions are very helpful!
