True Vintage 50's
Wiring Harness for Les Paul®

Convert your Les Paul® back to a true 50s wiring setup, coveted by many as the best LP® wiring available.

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.
