Cut Through at Any Volume

 

The ObsidianWire 60s wiring retains treble when you roll back the volume control allowing you to retain your overall tone and cut through at lower volumes. The controls are more intuitive with the 60s set, with the tone control changing tone and the volume control changing the volume.

Your face will hurt ...... from smiling!

I had never performed an electronics swap on a guitar before so it was like a blind dive into the deep end on my new Epiphone Les Paul Standard. I felt like a lid on Christmas morning when my ObsidianWire box arrived. When I clipped out my old electronics I saw that the new board would not fit in the cavity so I has to take a drill and a wood file to my new guitar but it was not hard and not much had to be removed. Once the board was in I had a very hard time trying to get the pickup stranded wire into the receiving slots on the board connection terminal. I gave up and decided to use a wirenut and a short solid core jumper wire for each connection. It would have been really helpful if the instructions mentioned that the terminal slots prefer a 20 gauge solid core wire. Also not being a pickup aficionado I had no idea what N Finish or S Finish meant. Epiphone doesn't even clarify that on their wiring diagram so I had to do a bit of googling. a picture in the instruction for us noobs would have been helpful. Once I got my wiring done and cover plate back on (and new knobs to fit the different size spline) I was ready for the test. Plugged it in and wow ..... WOW!! It's like I have a Les Paul, a Strat, and their bastard children all at my fingertips. Absolutely wonderful. Great tone, solid build. Who knew my stock ProBuckers could sound like this?!!! Highly recommend!

Great stuff

Upgrading an Epiphone. I saw this product on youtube and, since my soldering skills are lacking, I figured this would be simple. It was. Of course, I had to expand the volume and tone holes, but I knew that. The only issue I had was with the cavity in the guitar itself. It was a bit too small for the circuit board. Five minutes with a sharp wood chisel and it fit perfect. Hooked up the new Gibson pickups and everything worked perfect. A friend of mine, that plays in a local band, came over to see what it sounded like (he plays a real Gibson) and he was pretty astonished at what I turned a $600 into. This product is simple to use and AWESOME!
