The Stewmac LP wiring kit is a excellent buy good wire, good electronics, and easy to use. Only concern of mine is the switch wire is short allow your self time to wire the switch its a tight fit.

Les Paul wiring kit

The right parts at a good price. Sound quality is right up there. You may need additional wire depending on your guitar & wiring options. Very satisfied.

Everything you need included

Everything you need comes in this kit.You will need to have some extra wire around if it is a new guitar with no prior wiring included.I would suggest to StewMac to include a little bit more wire for people like me who built their own guitar but as long as people know they may be required to have more wire around this is still a great wiring kit.

Good enough

You get everything you need to wire up an LP style guitar. My wife bought me a kit LP as a project, all was good except the wiring harness was a joke. This kit gives you an inexpensive way to add decent wiring, a little time consuming over a pre wired harness but a good value.

Pros and Cons

I used this kit to completely redo the electronics in my Cort Les Paul, as it was starting to cut in and out and turning the knobs created alot of fuzz and static.

Given that this kit was designed for the Gibson Les Paul, a few modifications were needed.

1. The kit did not come with enough wiring, so I had to use some existing wires along with the kit wires.
2. The pots were too wide at the base, so I had to widen the hole in the body of my guitar where all the pots sit. It was no big deal though, I only needed to shave a couple of millimeters in a couple of spots.
3. The hole where the 1/4" jack sits needed to be widened a tad as well. The jack that came in the kit was just a bit longer than the existing jack and it causes the jack to push up against the side of the hole when a cable is plugged in. I didn't mess with widening the hole though and the cable will still plug in, it just takes a bit more force than it should. If I took the time to widen this hole as well, I'm sure it would work better.

Those were the only issues I had though, but none of which had to do with the kit, it was the fact that I used the kit on a Cort Les Paul instead of a Gibson Les Paul like it was designed for.

Other than those things, the compoments all work great and my guitar sounds fantastic now.

not totally impressed...

First of all, the switch is a joke and second, the caps don't seem to do much. This is not what you want to put in a fine instrument, period.
