Great improvement

By

Verified Buyer


Today I swapped out the cheap components in my Tele kit with this package. I'm very pleased with the results. Huge sound improvement and the high quality components feel great and function well. The Stew Mac wiring diagram was easy to follow. A fun project with bug results! highly recommended.

Good service, good parts. The only thing that would have made it better is if they had sent someone along to install the things.

My favorite place for all parts musical.

Quality pots, switches and caps. Wiring was a little light weight for my taste, but that’s just me.

Pretty simple kit

Does not come with heat shrink tubing. Make sure you take a look at both the diameter of the pots in this kit, and the holes in your guitar, as you may need metric sized pots. The kit comes with a little extra length in the wires so if you use them sparingly you should have enough for a backup. A diagram is included though it may be easier to follow a video tutorial should you ever have difficulty. All in all has all you need, just double check dimensions and diameters first

Radically more tone but watch the switch

By

Verified Buyer


This kit delivers much more low and mid frequencies than my original MIJ Tele electronics. I had to reconfigure my whole amp and pedals and even micro-adjusted the pickups again but it was worth it. I did have a problem with the switch not being exactly as it was in the diagram. It turns out some of the CTS switches they use have slightly different lug layouts but if you call or email them, they'll send you a new diagram which is correct.

Installed the premium wiring kit along with new Seymour Duncan pickups. Premium components, easy installation, schematic drawing was simple to follow. Great and inexpensive upgrade.

Great kit

I used this to rewire my MIM Telecaster while also changing the pickups.

Most of my motivation for the rewire was that the stock wiring harness was very sloppy with tons of excess wire, burnt insulation on wires, and bad solder joints. The selector switch on my guitar was also very floppy despite not being very old. The switch would not stay in the middle position while playing.

There was plenty of wire in this kit for me and the instructions were clear and matched the stock wiring diagram. The only difference is the type of wire, types of capacitors, and the presence of the treble bleed capacitor. The stock wiring in my guitar did not include the treble bleed.

Everything in the kit worked out greats. The pots are smooth and provide better adjustment, the selector switch is rock solid, and I am happy with the treble bleed. The output jack is also a good bit firmer than the stock one. I was able to use a lot less wire than the stock harness and the 60/120hz noise in the guitar was reduced which is a pleasant benefit.

Great customers support!

It has not not been installed yet but surely looks well made and a high quality stuff. It arrived well and carefully packed. I have to highlight the excellence regarding to StewMac's customers support. My order was lost in transit probably due to some issue with the postal service. All i had to do was to contact StewMac by a simple e-mail. I was very well attended by the customers service and they kindly told me that they would send me a replacement, that simple. It arrived about ten or twelve days after this which is really sooner than i expected considering that i live in Brazil. It was my first experience buying from StewMac and surely won't be the last.
