What is it?
This is a 50's style pre-wired Les Paul wiring harness upgrade for Gibson and Epiphone Les Paul guitars. The 50's style wiring allows you to roll back on the volume and maintain more high end and clarity with less treble loss.

This wiring harness features 500k short shaft potentiometers and .047 Orange drop capacitors. The short shaft pots have a threaded bushing length of 3/8" and are typically used in Epiphone guitars and guitars with thinner tops.

Hand wired with the highest quality parts and cleanest solder connections. This wiring harness will give you the clearest signal possible with even and balanced volume/tone roll off.

-4 x matched CTS 500k pots. Short split shaft, 3/8" threaded bushing (cts makes the highest quality poteniometers with consistant and reliable readings). Long shaft pots available upon request for an extra $5.
-2 volume 2 tone
-.047mfd Sprague orange drop capacitor (produces a smooth and even treble roll off when cutting back on the tone controls)
-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. Many Gibson Les Pauls will require long shaft pots.
