Golden Age Pre-wired Harness for Gibson® Les Paul®

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.

Got questions? Call or email us. A friendly gearhead will be happy to help!

No more PCB board and now it's pure analog...

This kit was easy to install and you need some skill with the soldering iron. I transformed a 2017 Les Paul standard by yanking the PCB out and this kit in. Thanks for a quality product!!

Perfect with two minor aesthetic issues

StewMac was great and the package arrived exactly on time. Packaged well. The Golden Age kit was well organized and the instructions pretty good. I was completing an overhaul of my 1991 Gibson Les Paul Studio. Combining the Golden Age wiring harness with new custom Brandon Wound 59 Clone PAF pickups. Not an expert so this made me pretty nervous, especially the soldering. I did find a YouTube video that walked it through step be step which was quite helpful. The parts went in perfectly and every soldered up nicely. The tone sounds great with the new wiring and pickups. Really good! Three minor issues:
- shrink tube for cable management should be included at this price
- the knob on the 3 way switch is weird yellow orange and should be white or black. I had to order a replacement.
- the nut on the 3 way switch is silver/nickle and all my hardware is gold. I had to order a replacement.
At this price, they need to include both colors in the kit.
$8 of parts needed at 9.99 shipping from StewMac. That sucks and makes me less likely to recommend.

My 2010 Les Paul had very cheap electronics in it with push-pull pots that I never used. This kit was easy to install and my Paul sounds so much better!

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

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...
