Les Paul® Wiring Kit - Long Shaft
Click HERE for our COVID19 Shipping Policy Update!This Les Paul® wiring kit consists of some of the best components on the market today and is a great way to upgrade the electronics in imported models, DIY guitar kits and partscasters.
CTS and Switchcraft are two of the "go-to" manufacturers for countless guitar techs, luthiers and guitarists worldwide and are commonly found in many high end USA guitars.
Orange drop capacitors are known throughout the industry for their sweet, mellow tones whilst the braided push back wire is found in Gibson USA guitars as standard.
Les Paul® wiring kit includes:
• 1 genuine Switchcraft ¼’’ mono input jack
• 4 x CTS 500k "TVT" (True Vintage Taper) pots
• 2 x 0.022uF 100v orange drop capacitors
• 1 x Switchcraft 3 way toggle switch + deep threaded nut
• 4 ft Gibson® style shielded braided push back wire
• 1ft Black push back cloth guitar wire
• 1ft tinned copper ground wire
• Colour wiring diagram
We also include 12cm of 3.5mm heat shrink tubing for extra insulation/protection.
We will select four matched pots (within a tolerance of 4% of each other). The general tolerance of these pots is 9% but we will actually select 4 matched pots with values as close to 500k as possible.
Will this fit my guitar?
This kit will fit genuine Gibson USA Les Pauls. The pot shaft diameter is 9.52mm. It can fit the vast majority of imported Les Paul® copies but it is likely you will be required to drill the tone and volume control holes through the body to a larger diameter (M10).
The Switchcraft® toggle requires a mounting hole 12mm in diameter. Choose from either amber, black or cream toggle switch tip.
