(3P) 50s Les Paul Wiring Harness | CTS 500K Long Shaft Pots, Orange Drop .022µF Capacitors
Lil' Huddy's Guitar Shop
Here is a great way to upgrade your Les Paul or Les Paul style guitar with high quality components in one easy drop-in harness.
This kit includes:
4 x CTS 550 Custom Audio Taper Long Shaft Potentiometers
2 x Orange Drop 716P 400V .022µF Capacitors - Need Different Caps or Values? No Problem Just Let Me Know. ;-)
Grounding wire for all potentiometers
These pots are spec'd to 550 kΩ by CTS and have a super smooth modified 20% Taper. They are then matched to 1% +/- of each other. I am very particular about having a proper balance between pickups.
Simply drop this harness in to your guitar and connect the pickup leads, selector switch leads, and appropriate grounds.
Note: CTS Potentiometers Require 24-Spline Fine Knurl Knobs. Long shaft potentiometers work with '77 & later Gibson LPs. Many import brands may require the mounting holes to be enlarged to accept the 3/8" potentiometer bushings.
