Exactly what we need

I honestly don't know what to say, except that these are great. I have Obsidian hardware in a P-bass and a Telecaster, and they are exactly what I needed. The feel of the pots, the solid hardware build, the installation experience... If they keep making cool stuff, I'll keep buying it.

so easy

I am old and my hands shake but, I find it is so much easier than sodering. If I make another guitar I will order from you guys.

New life to a 2010 Standard Tele

I purchased this from a third party about six months ago. It was installed in my 2010 Standard Telecaster, along with Tonerider Vintage Plus Pickups. It was simple to install, I just read the instructions and took my time.

To be honest, I was doubtful there would be much difference between the series vs parallel positions, but I was blown away how different they are. For me having the series option makes it a must have.

The tone knob was hands down better than what Fender installed in 2010. There is more control.

Awesome Switch (w/ Astrisk)

I love this 7-way switch! It sounds amazing and all the bell and whistles allow for so many different tones. The install was fairly easy BUT I do need to warn about a potential issue some might run into.

I installed on a 2005 Red Squire Strat (Indonesia made) and I did have to modify the body under the pickup. Underneath the switch by the tone knobs are 2 large capacitors and the shape of my control cavity did fit this. I had to cut into the body a little to allow them to fit. It's all under the pickguard and it was easy enough for me but just need to mention it others.

I would 100% do it again! With all of the features and controls, it is absolutely worth it!

HSS Strat

It seems like a great piece of equipment so far, I did have a few issues getting the wires in the holes, it’s such a tiny button, and if your stock pickup wire is cut short forget it. I did have the middle pickup out of phase problem. And then later when I was lowering the middle pickup it must have pushed on the neck pickup wire and yanked it out of its socket. I’ll have to extend the wires on my pickups.

4-way Tele Harness - Great!

Pots operate very smoothly. Pickup selector feels sturdy. Sound is quiet and I love the treble bleed! Installation was easy. I’m very satisfied and will definitely use Obsidian Wire for future upgrades.

Minor mod for a squier classic vibe p bass, No need to buy a new pickguard.

Installed a new Obsidian Wire PBass wiring system on my Squier classic vibe 70's p bass… The manufacturer said I would need a new pick guard… I have an RC car body reamer to make the holes bigger. The whole install for the new system took less then an hour… fits like a glove and sounds great over the stock squier pots!

GSW Review

So far so good. Easy to install, wiring was as simple as they tell you. Right now I have a hum from the middle pickup but I haven't had time to troubleshoot. Overall I am very have with the new sound of the Squire Strat that I modified.

Very nice product

had to do some modifications to my les Paul solid body but the product is so nice, sounds great, love the switch for 50s or 60s. paired this upgrade with seymore duncun humbuckers and it's a different guitar. The install was not super easy, would be nice to see bridge neck hot ground with red green white black in the switch instructions, but no soldering. Amazing. Really impressed. will be buying another for my other les Paul Ponce they are back in stock. Great product.

Fitting was ridiculously tight

these knobs... does anyone make good knobs? Not that I've found...

Second to none. Clarity sound and tone easy installation perfect fit in all aspects. Very well designed and with best quality parts constructed. I have used at least 80% of my guitars the ones that I’ve built. I highly recommend.

Great made quality and range of sound

Just a warning if you shield your guitar. extra contact on the switch plate will make the 1rst position not working.
Lack of explanation about the different positions. Still not sure witch is the serial and parallel mode...

This is such a great wiring kit. It’s super clean and simple. I think an added image or indicator to help with the orientation of it would have helped, I accidentally installed it reversed in my Les Paul. But that was user error. It sounds great and would buy it again.

Strat Gen2 HSS

Awesome Strat upgrade. Improved the versatility and sound of my 30 year old American Strat. So easy to install. Will upgrade any new Strat I get. Hopefully you can do versions for Ibanez guitars.

Too early to review

I would love to review the product however I have not installed it yet. I ordered this including some pickups (from another company) to start on a project guitar. I won't be starting the project for a couple of months because I will be refinishing the body and neck prior to installation.

Pots are NOT CTS and are loose

Kit works, sounds good and is easy to install, but does not come with CTS pots as shown in the picture, and the pots are loose. Listen to video to hear rattle.

Obsidian Wire Rocks! and great service!

I had installed the controls wrong, but sent an email to tech support and they responded quickly and helped me get it all right! It is actually a simple install, no solder needed of course. I purchased the LP Mark11 version with push pull pots to split coils and it works excellently. Sounds better that the soldered controls that came from the factory in my LP Classic Gibson. I really enjoy having the coil split and I enjoyed the install project, Thanks to all at Obsidian Wire!
