This T-style guitar wiring upgrade kit provides everything you need to furnish your guitar with quality controls and components. It uses modern alternatives to the traditional pots and wire. The volume and tone controls come from Bourns who are based in the UK and make some of the best quality pots available. They have high temperature tolerance (good for soldering) and a smooth, consistent action. The switch is a genuine CRL 3-way with a proven-quality Switchcraft Jack socket. The capacitor is a Panasonic polyester film and the kit comes with modern 20awg hook-up wire in black and red.
The kit includes:
2 x Bourns knurled-shaft Audio taper 250k potentiometers made to metric measurements so they should fit into a non-American made instrument without modifications.
A Switchcraft jack socket – the best and most reliable
A Panasonic 0.047uF capacitor – polyester film made to high tolerance (+/- 5%) with a wide temperature range (-40 to 105 C). These are a high quality modern cap with similar characteristics to an ‘orange drop’ but in a smaller package with leaded radial legs that are much easier to solder.
20awg hook-up wire, 2ft each of black and red.
A CRL 3-way switch – high quality made in USA and very reliable.
