What is it?

-This is a 1956-1961 pre-wired Gibson Les Paul wiring harness. The 50's style wiring allows you to maintain more high end and clarity with less treble loss when rolling back on the volume.

-The harness features the Luxe .022 Bumble Bee Capacitors made to the exact specs as the bumble bees from the 50's. Each cap is hand wound on an original vintage winding machine using the exact vintage spec aluminum foil and paper film. They're hand soldered, hand cast in oven-proof thermoplastic, hot vacuum impregnated with pure castor oil and hand painted.


-4 x matched CTS 500k pots. Long split shaft, 3/8" wide bushing, 3/4" long threaded bushing. (CTS makes the highest quality potentiometers with consistent and reliable readings).
-2 volume 2 tone
-Luxe .022 Bumble Bee Capacitors
-Vintage style pull back cloth wire (7 strand 22 gauge wire for the strongest grounding connection)
-Custom aluminum shield plate to insure proper grounding and noise reduction
-Wiring diagram included

NOTE: If you are replacing the electronics on an Epiphone Les Paul you may need to widen the potentiometer holes on the guitar. You may also need new plastic knob covers. Most Epiphones come stock with smaller pots.
