This deluxe electronic wiring kit is truly an upgrade for your Les Paul. The kit contains only name brand parts starting with our custom spec’d 525K pots, made by CTS exclusively for The Art Of Tone and topped off with New Old Stock Russian Military K40Y-9 Paper in Oil capacitors a quality Switchcraft switch and jack finish it off. The kit also includes the wire and instructions you’ll need to do the job right. An investment in this kit is money you’ll definitely be able to hear. Please Note: 1. As a general rule pre-1977 production Les Paul’s, many of the historic reissue Les Paul’s, ES series, PRS and Hamer guitars use short shaft pots. If you are uncertain whether your guitar uses short (3/8″) or long (3/4″) shaft pots, please double check before you order. 2. All parts in this kit use American not metric sizing. If you own an imported guitar (e.g. Japan, China, Mexico, etc.), or Epi the pots, switch and jack in this kit will not fit your guitar without enlarging the openings to 3/8″ diameter. 3. The switchcraft toggle switch comes with a flat nut, depending on the thickness of the body of the guitar (this includes most Les Paul’s), you made need the “vintage-style” deep nut, which is also included in this kit. 4. To avoid returns on this item please read 1 & 2 again.
