Great. Results

I was replacing all of the electronics in my 2006 Fender Standard Mexican Strat. After I compared the price of the individual components it was a no-brained to spend a few more bucks and get the Golden Age Pre-wired Harness and save myself all the time.

The harness is very high quality, professionally fabricated, and dropped right into my guitar. The pots are very responsive and function perfectly with the new Fender Gen 4 pickups that I also installed.

If you’re not good at soldering, or don’t want to spend the time it takes to do it right, then do yourself a favor and get this Pre-Wired harness. You’ll be glad you did.

Easy Peasy

I found the kit very easy to install The instructions were very clear. The only issue I found was the wire between the Vol and Tone was a wee bit short. However a little persuasion on the tab on the pot allowed things to go together.

Rewired my 1999 Strat with this kit and the difference it made was incredible. Fast Shipping, clear instructions, quality components, soldering and wires. As advertised. It even came with both black and white caps for the switch, so check the bottom of the bag.

Thanks!

Shipping and Customer service was fab too.

Easy replacement for bad pots

By

Verified Buyer


Although I am somewhat of an amateur at soldering, I still wanted to do as little soldering as I could and this harness was the answer. It replaced the cheap Chinese pots and switch in an otherwise beautiful looking and playing Stratocaster and functions smoothly and reliably. It was easy to install and the quality of the wiring and connections is first rate. The components look like they are built to last. Highly recommended.

Full disclosure, I installed this wiring harness on a Squire Bullet Strat at the same time I installed some Fender 57/62 pickups. The guitar sounds fantastic. How much is due to the wiring? The pickups? I dunno, but I love it. The harness arrived on a nice little wooden template ready to install. I had to drill out the holes for the pots (Note: put drill press on slow speed to avoid the dreaded spinning pick guard of doom). Everything fit and everything works. The best part? If I need to take this guitar to my tech, I can give my best Barney Fife shrug and respond, " yeah, that's my work right there". (sniff). I am really satisfied with everything I get from StewMac. Word? Spend the money on a membership. It's been less than six months since I joined and I've already saved the fee in shipping alone.

Just What I Needed

I was doing a new pickup assembly into a new pickguard using the new Gen4 Noiseless p'ups from Fender. I was unsure of my soldering skills and also didn't want to buy the parts separately. This fit the bill perfectly - the wooden template served to hold the components in place while I soldered in the p'up leads and it assembled onto the pickguard without a hitch! Well done folks!
