Good product .......

Nuff said. Installed, worked as it should, w some help from Seymour Duncan's wiring schematic, and a look under the hood of a fender start.

HINT. do not ship any "push back insulated wire in your kits, it is junk. just use standard braided wire w normal plastic insulation.

Worked great

All the parts were great quality. My only comments are that all 3 potentiometers were the same - for some reason I as expecting linear pots for the tones and an audio pot for the volume - all the pots were audio pots and I spent some time figuring that out. Also note this is vintage wiring which is very different than normal insulation - it tends to fray and catch in modern tools. The insulation also tends to slide up the conductor so keep an eye out for shorts. All parts were high quality and work fine in my newly rebuilt strat.

Great pots no way to select capacitor

Great pots, work and fit great. THe capacitor is only available in .047 mf, they should also offer the kit with .022 mf. That's what many use on Strats, particularly with third party pickups and many even with the original pickups just to bleed off some of the "Brightness" of the single coil pickups.

I have never soldered in my life! This kit was so easy to install and well worth the price. The feel of the controls and difference in sound is amazing. I also ordered the treble bleed kit and copper shielding tape...my strat is updated and hot to trot. All my electric guitars Will be upgraded!!

Great Kit

By

Verified Buyer


I love this kit. The CTS pots are nice and smooth. The vintage pushback wire is a nice touch and much easier to install. I installed two caps, one for the neck and middle tone and a separate one for the bridge tone. I also added a treble bleed kit. Everything came out wonderful. Get this kit!

Great Upgrade

Installed this kit when I shielded all the cavities in my new Strat and installed new pickups. Installation was pretty easy and the instructions were clear. Inexpensive upgrade. I just ordered the Tele Premium Wiring Kit for my Telecaster.
