Here is a great way to upgrade your Import PRS or PRS style guitar with high quality components in one easy drop-in harness.  This is designed for the PRS SE Custom 22 which featured 1 x Master Volume, 1 x Master Tone, & 1 x 3-Way Toggle.  This kit will not work with the Custom 24 or any models with the 3-Way blade selector.


This is especially great for someone who is (or is planning on) replacing their stock pickups w/ a pair with braided shielded leads.

This kit includes:

  • 2 x 500k Audio Taper Potentiometers (Matched w/ 2% Tolerance - Choice of CTS or Bourns (Split or Solid - Split is Most Common)
  • 1 x Russian Paper-In-Oil K40Y-9 400V .015μF, .022μF, .033μF, or .047μF Capacitor (.022μF is most common for humbuckers)
  • 1 x Wired Switchcraft Short 3-Way Toggle w/ choice of toggle tip color - Black, White, Cream, or Amber
  • 1 x Switchcraft #11 Mono Output Jack

Simply drop this harness in to your guitar and connect the pickup leads to the selector switch leads and appropriate grounds.  

All Potentiometers are matched to have a 2% +/- Tolerance.

Note:  CTS 450G Potentiometers Require 24-Spline Fine Knurl Knobs which do not match the Alpha Pots that come standard in import PRS guitars.  New knobs may be required if utilizing CTS Split Shaft Pots.  Additionally, many import brands may require the mounting holes to be enlarged to accept the 3/8" potentiometer bushings.
