A must for a decent Kit

By

Verified Buyer


This was one of the best upgrades I did. The stock wiring that comes with the 335 kit would almost be impossible to install without something coming loose. The high quality switch and pots are great but the most important item was the high quality wire. The pushback and the other wire it came with was leaps and bounds better than the stock wiring.

Great replacement kit, happy with results!

By

Verified Buyer


My SG always had some problematic issues with the electronics. Scratchy pots and then most recently the signal would completely die in the rhythm position. Rather than isolate the issue by testing every component I settled on the premium kit which had everything I needed and was nearly a 1-to-1 replacement. I ended up not using the nuts only because the originals are semi-gold colored hardware. Happy with the results, signal is strong, no scratchy pots. Really worth your while if you’re willing to piece everything together which is fun and a learning experience.

great replacement parts at a good price

By

Verified Buyer


I just installed these parts on my 2015 Gibson SG special, which had the printed circuit board. For some reason one volume pot went bad and there is no easy fix on this PCB, so out it went. The parts are all high quality and everything went as planned (used Gibson's 50s wiring scheme). That said I did notice 3 of the 4 pots measured 500-512 K while the 4th measured 480k. I was a bit surprised by this but used it anyway and cannot tell the difference.

Original job was a joke

Whomever originally did the wiring on my Epi - SG was surely soldering their very first unit. The big ol gobs of solder on the original pots, in the unshielded cavity, were hideous. The electronics are much cleaner both looking and sounding now. Thanks for the quality kit!

Just what I needed

The kit is exactly as advertised. I haven't wired it up yet but I'm confident that everything is here and will perform perfectly. The only problem with the order was my own fault. I paid no attention to the fact that they include the amber switch tip...and I ordered a second one.

335 kit

By

Verified Buyer


I bought this for the 335 kit. I have yet to see if it works, but it seemed like this switch would work better than the LP switch. It's still a guess right now. But I do expect to have to ream the holes as I did for the LP kit I built before this.

But the quality is what I expected and I assume it all works
