My most popular upgrade for Les Paul Style guitars. Replaces the muddy stock wiring with top of the line CTS 550K pots, 50's wiring and  Mojo .022 oil filled tone caps (silver colored metal case). This allows a lot of the sweet mids and highs to come through and your Volume and tone controls will be much more user friendly. Switchcraft switch and jack sold separately.

Bon Appetit' Harness: My tribute to the Kris Derrig Les Paul that Slash used on the GnR AFD album. Great option with high gain settings for smooth creamy leads and crunchy rhythm work. Will also produce fat, warm clean tones with the right amp. Comparable to the Seymour Duncan Slash A2 Pro set. Summer 2017 was the 30th anniversary of the AFD album release. Check out my Bon Appetit' A2 Humbuckers on my pickup page.

This harness comes with the best CTS 550K pots (your choice short or long) 50's wiring to retain highs, smooth NOS SBE 225P poly caps (these are not the typical harsher 715P orange drops) Nice alternative for Hard Rock & High gain players.

The MSP wiring has CTS 550k volume pots and 2 DPDT push pulls in the tone position. BT does Out of phase and NT does the Series mod. Together they do Series out of phase. Make sure you order a Switchcraft switch and jack because your stock toggle will not work with this MSP wiring. 4 con pvc pickup leads work best, braided leads need to be covered with shrink tube to prevent shorting.

Also available for SG on request.

NOTE: Short pots have 3/8" threads, long pots have 3/4" threads. Long pots are also mounted on a metal plate or PC board from factory. Long pots come double nutted and should mount directly into the wood cavity.Llong pots will also work in the import LPs with carved cap.

I DO NOT recommend the copper shielding.Good soldering skills and proper grounding is what you need for a quiet guitar.

Most wiring is custom built and normally ships out in 1-3 business days
