Les Paul® Wiring Harness
Est. Delivery: 1-2 daysThis Les Paul® wiring harness will simply drop into your guitar's control cavity.
Using period correct vintage "buss" wire (tinned copper), this prewired Les Paul® kit is wired in the popular 50's style - ie. how they were wired during the golden age of guitar building.
Prewired Les Paul® kit;
- CTS "TVT" (True Vintage Taper) 500k pots (choose long or short shaft)
- 0.022uF PIO (paper in oil) capacitors
- Tinned copper "buss" ground wire.
True Vintage Taper Pots
Featuring TVT CTS pots, our premium Les Paul harness is an authentic upgrade to stock electronics in modern guitars. TVT pots have a bakelite baseplate and a smooth (vintage style) audio taper as opposed to the modern 10% audio taper, giving you a smoother and more rounded control sweep.
Will this fit my guitar?
This Les Paul® wiring harness will fit genuine Gibson® and Epiphone® USA models. 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) to allow for the larger US made CTS pots.
Do I need short or long shaft pots?
Long shaft pots are used for guitars with thick bodies or arched/curved tops where a short shaft pot isn't long enough to go through. Regardless, our long shaft pots come with 2 hex nuts to allow you to easily adjust the height.
Short shaft pots are suited for flat top guitars or Epiphone® Les Pauls.
If you are re wiring your guitar or looking to upgrade stock electronics in a far eastern model or DIY guitar kit, this Les Paul® wiring harness with a prewired toggle switch will go a long way to improving the performance and tone of your guitar.
