About This Item

Assembled and soldered in the USA using top components, including Switchcraft switches and CTS pots for the best sound. Ready to drop into your guitar!

    Worth every penny!
  • Premium hand-wired for drop-in retrofit
  • Upgrade your old wiring
  • Save work and save time on new builds

Soldered in our Athens, Ohio shop
We professionally hand-soldered these harnesses using the best brand-name components for long life and great sound: CTS pots, Orange Drop® caps, Switchcraft™ toggle switch and output jack and cloth push-back wire.

Tested and 100% Guaranteed
Each Golden Age harness comes to you mounted on a reusable plywood template, which is a tool in itself: save it for future wiring jobs. The template holds the components correctly so the finished harness fits neatly into the guitar's wiring cavity.

Some simple soldering is needed to connect the switch and jack after you've threaded the wires through the guitar channels. Pickup lead wires will also need to be soldered to the harness.

Golden Age Pre-wired Harness for Gibson® Les Paul

By

Verified Buyer


The pre-wired harness for my Epiphone Les Paul worked very well. Prior to the order, I contacted technical service twice with questions to make sure that this kit would work with my guitar. They were very helpful, and I was confident when it came time to order. The kit came with an excellent set of instructions and a very good wiring diagram. I do not have a lot of experience in soldering, but the installation was successful and the guitar sounds very good. Thank you.

Simple, pure, tone

By

Verified Buyer


Purchased this kit to replace the active circuit and components in my '13 LP Trad Pro II. As I am a mature kid, 55+, it was making me crazy. I left the "57s in place, used the modern cap wiring, used the Stew Mac wiring diagram and connected the red and white wires together for each pick up (4-conductor). Even without the tone bleed mod. it sounds amazing. Couldn't be happier. ( By the way, black/dark blue mark on pickup cable set is for "Bridge")
Thanx to everyone at Stew Mac.
Rock on...

Installed on an Epiphone LP using the Sheratin II schematic connections. Easy and no hassle. The jack section of the loom could me made 2 inches longer and would fit multiple guitar options a little easier in a single kit due to routing tunnel differences between the Gibbys and Epi's. Woke this guitar up from its sleep. Really made a big difference in all around tone control and quality. The CTS pots outshine the Alphas by miles. Glad I purchased harness.

Quick and Easy

Very nice upgrade, and easy to install. I added a couple of Parsons Street humbuckers to complete the upgrade and my LP now has that vintage sound I’ve been looking for! I used another template to bench test the complete set before installing - worked great!

Excellent Quality, Easy Installation

By

Verified Buyer


The individual parts are of high quality, and the switch in particular feels fantastic; it establishes a very solid connection, and I could feel a massive difference from the stock Epiphone branded switch. I installed this to an Epiphone Les Paul Standard, so I had to use a T-Handle reamer to enlarge the holes for the pots, but it was well worth it (very quick and easy too) to upgrade from the stock Alpha pots to CTS. The instructions are simple and straightforward, and the jack itself is extremely solid feeling.

Before buying, I called to ask a few questions, and the customer service rep was really friendly and informative.

I'd re-buy this without hesitation.

Les Paul Pre-wired harness

My LP came with a circuit board with the pots soldered on. Not shielded. This harness is easy to install with minimal soldering. Not hard to do. I replaced pickups at same time with Parsons Street overwounds. MUCH better sound!

Epiphone les paul

Good solder connections. Only thing is, if you buy this for an epiphone, you will need a short shaft switch. All I did was unsolder the switch and put in a short shaft.
