Who are you? What is Six String Supplies?
Six String Supplies is a UK based guitar parts supplier - our specialty is guitar electronics. We are a small team of guitar lovers who deliver a high quality and dedicated service, supplying top of the range products. We supply premium guitar wiring kits and prewired harnesses to the guitar building community. We have an ever increasing range of wiring diagrams to guide and teach you the basics to guitar wiring. You can read about who we are and what we do via our about us page.
We offer a dedicated, professional and quick service for your needs - if you are not happy with any of our products, we'll buy it back from you! Our hassle free returns policy means if you are not happy with your purchase you can simply return it back to us for a full refund.
I have placed my order - how long does delivery take?
All domestic items are shipped via Royal Mail Tracked 24. This is generally a next day service but can take 2-4 days in the worst case scenario. We will always obtain a tracking number which will be communicated to you directly. All orders are packed and shipped within 1 working day, except during busy periods (prewired kits can take 3-5 working days to be assembled, packed and shipped). Read our full Returns and Shipping Policy for more information.
International Orders are shipped via DHL Express - this can take 2-7 days, depending on destination and customs clearance.
What payment methods do you accept?
You can pay using PayPal (you don't need a PayPal account) or via credit or debit card. We accept all major cards. Once you have filled your basket and ready to pay, you'll be directed to our SSL (the padlock in your search bar) secure checkout area. Alternatively, you can pay over the phone if you prefer. Our payment and security policy should answer all of your questions.
Will your products fit my guitar?
All of our products are from high quality US brands. CTS, Switchcraft, CRL etc...will fit genuine US made guitars with little or no modification. In short, imperial sized components. Full dimensions (and in some cirumstances, product drawings) are on hand but if in doubt, don't hesitate to check with us. If you are fitting into an eastern imported model, you may have to drill the control holes on your guitar to a larger diameter. All of our prewired guitar kits will fit genuine Fender and Gibson guitars or basses with no modification.
If I buy a wiring kit, will you fit it for me?
Short answer: no.
Long answer: all of our prewired and DIY kits come with an easy to read diagram and in many cases, a video is available showing how to wire it. We are an online retailer and do not offer fitting services. If you are not comfortable fitting our products into your guitar yourself, then you need to take it to a qualified guitar tech to install on your behalf.
Do you do custom wiring harnesses?
No. We do not do custom wiring kits or custom wiring diagrams.
Do you do left handed kits?
No - with regret, we are not able to offer left handed versions of our kits at this time.
Are all of your items in stock?
Yes! If it is listed as being in stock, then it is in stock and ready for shipment. Please note however that during busy periods, prewired harnesses are made to order. In the extremely rare case that it is not available, this is due to an error on our part. We disagree with websites that take your money under the pretence of goods being available only to email you the same day with bad news. We receive weekly deliveries so if we are unable to honour your order right away, we will always let you know and offer a refund or the opportunity to wait until new stock arrives. We do not accept back orders, so if an item is out of stock, it is unavailable until it comes in stock again.
Why should I buy from you and not elsewhere?
We go the extra mile. Not satisfied with simply packing and shipping an order, we show you how to install everything, either through our detailed photo wiring guides or videos. Click the icon below to check out our handy YouTube channel!

We pride ourselves on providing a first class customer relationship based on prompt attention and deliveries backed up by quality products based on knowledge, expertise and experience.
