Les Paul® Wiring Kit - Long Shaft
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 x Switchcraft® ¼’’ mono jack socket
- 4 x 500k SSS Premium® CTS pots (8% tolerance)
- 2 x 0.022uF 100v orange drop capacitors
- 1 x Switchcraft® 3 way toggle switch + deep threaded nut
- 5ft Gavitt USA® braided push back wire
- 1ft tinned copper ground wire
- Colour wiring diagram
- Optional SSS Premium® PIO capacitor upgrade
We also include 12cm of 3.5mm heat shrink tubing for extra insulation/protection.
SSS Premium® CTS Pots
Featuring SSS Premium® CTS pots, our wiring kits are the ultimate upgrade to any model, be it a DIY partscaster or Custom Shop. SSS Premium® CTS pots have a custom audio taper as opposed to the modern 10% audio taper, giving you a smoother and more rounded control sweep. Our pots are supplied to within a tolerance of 8%.
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. For full installation instructions - how to wire a Les Paul®
