Super Sweet to Full on Growls and Moans - The Traditional Vintage 50's Pro-Wired Electronics for Les Paul:

ObsidianWire Traditional Vintage 50's Pro-Wired Electronics for Les Paul converts your guitar back to original 50's spec which has a number of advantages of the current factory method of wiring.

As you roll back your volume you will notice that the treble loss is greatly reduced to a much smoother level. This turns your volume control into the perfect tool for rolling between a super sweet clean tone with just the very top end knocked off, to a full on Les Paul style onslaught, with all of the growl and moan that the Les Paul is famous for.

Further more, by placing the tone control back behind the volume control, the two start to interact more dynamically with a turn of each affecting the response of the other.

ObsidianWire Pro-Wired Electronics are built using the world’s best craftsmanship and components:

  • 4 x Premium Selected CTS Split Shaft Pots 500k (+/-6%) (Matched to +/-2%) (Long Shaft with extra nuts can be used with long shaft or short shaft guitars)

ObsidianWire Pro-Wired Electronics for Les Paul, are designed to be a direct fit for American Gibson® Les Pauls®.

They can also be used and are a great upgrade for Epiphone Les Pauls.

Attempting to use your old metric knobs will damage your new Pro-Wired Electronics.

Unbelievably good

I have purchased 2 of the 50s configuration Les Paul PCBs. The design and workmanship is outstanding. The tone produced is absolutely amazing. I have a 2003 Studio with Seymore Duncan P-rail, 4-wire pickups and a 2017 Studio with a 490r and 498t neck and bridge single wire pickups. The flexibility and tone of each guitar is clean, crisp and crunchy. I, too, have mixed results with the soldering iron. This solution offers you the ability to change pickups quickly and enjoy the diversity you are looking for. Kudos to the folks who engineered and brought this to market. Outstanding job.

My guitar sounds awesome now!

I must confess -- I am horrible at soldering. So after messing up another wiring harness with my soldering skills, I came across ObsidianWire and purchased out of desperation. Now I wish this would have been my first choice. The wiring sounds awesome, it was a breeze to install and the included switch and input jack completed the upgrade. I would HIGHLY recommend ObsidianWire harnesses.
