The best I’ve ever tried

Ease of installation aside, the range of the tone knob on my P bass now is a thing of beauty.
This is easily the best harness I’ve found and I’ve used a few.

Very pleased with The Custom Universal for Tele purchase

I'm very pleased with my Custom Universal for Tele purchase. Installation was very straight forward, though I wish the included instructions had been updated with the current shipping product. No bother though as I figured it out easily. The unit was installed in a Fender Telecaster Professional II with a TV Jones Powertron neck pickup and the original single coil bridge pickup. The results exceeded my expectations. The pot smoothness were superior to another brand of prewired solderless control harness I previously bought for another Telecaster. I'm very happy with my purchase!

Product didn't work, no customer service

Despite my best efforts and that of a very experienced guitar tech the unit would not work properly. Middle pickup would not come on (it was checked separately and is functional) in positions 2 and 3. Tried customer service and got no response. Very disappointing.

Fender Jazz Bass Kit I assembled from factory Parts

I had previously used standard components on this jazz bass but had problems.(dead pickup) I thought that the harness (circuit Board solder less install) would be better. As well as sound better, It did!! Im Happy!
I did have some problems with the wire ends from the pickups, not wanting to stay connected but using a tweezer to hold the wire in place did the job!
Very well Made! My wife said so, She is a certified solder and assembly person with over 30 years experience!
She makes things that go in airplanes.

Great product but…

I love the ease of install and the sound is great on the MKII for Les Paul (Vintage 50s & Modern 60s Wiring). However, I have contacted support because I only received a cream switch tip. I didnt see anything that determines what color you get while ordering the unit, just thought multiple colors would be included. The choice is there if buying a switch on Obsidians site but their support hasn't even contacted me yet about the issue. An all blacked out hardware guitar, with a cream switch tip, yuk.

Excellent products but !

This wiring harness is quality all the way. Fit my partscaster build perfectly and controls and sounds wonderful. The only complaint I have is the push in wiring terminals are a little finicky for instance a very small piece of wire broke off in one and it took me a bit of time to get cleared out of terminal I thought it had rendered this harness useless but my patience paid off and I was able to proceed,

T7 Custom

I upgrade my Nashville tele with T7 custom to have bridge and neck position. It has a push pull that adds another range of tones. This unit makes the pick ups sound with more detail and cleaner. Quick install!

A Very Forgiving Repair and Upgrade All in One

My '72 P-bass had gone silent, and in researching replacement electronics, I stumbled on Obsidian. After reading the reviews, I decided to give myself a break and not have to worry about soldering. Of course things rarely go as planned, and when I took a close look at the existing electronics, I noticed that I had two live leads coming from the pickups. I wasn't surprised as the bass had been modified by Alembic back in 1976, and at that time they replaced the original pickups with Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders. After a little pondering, I decided to strip and twist the two leads together to create a single live wire. My first attempt at installing the Obsidian unit resulted in silence. Then I realized I had flipped the unit upside down, and once I got things properly oriented and reconnected, I was rewarded by the best sound the instrument had put out in years. I guess the point is that the solderless connections are very forgiving and allow for a bit of trial and error without the hassle of soldering, unsoldering and resoldering. I found the resulting sound to be much cleaner, wider in frequency response and just plain better than the old pots and wiring. I highly recommend Obsidian for sound quality, ease of installation and flexibility during the installation process. Pros and novices alike will appreciate Obsidian's features.

Absolutely Amazing for me!!!

Absolutely love this wiring harness for my Warmoth Strat. This is the fourth or fifth harness I've had in this guitar at it's definitely the best. My main gripe with the other harnesses I've tried before is the poor taper of the potentiometers where the volume/tone would just decrease too rapidly as you turn down. Not the case with the Obsidian. I now have an even and smooth volume and tone taper across the the whole movement of the pot . Also I love the clarity switch which combined with the taper of the pots allows me to get lots of different and usable tones with great clarity that I was never able to get before. Only one minor issue I had was that my strat control cavity had to be widened ever so slightly by the tone controls to get the harness to fit, but after I removed a little bit of wood it fit right in. Because of that it too me several hours to install because of the necessary wood work.

The way this guitar was always meant to sound

I've a 2012 Fender US Deluxe Strat with the S-1 switching and noiseless pickups. After a pickup swap the sound improved but discarding the S-1 switching and moving to the Obsidian Wire Gen 2 HSS harness has totally transformed the sound of this guitar. Not only is it quieter, the sound is clearer, sharper, more sensitive. You can hear each string distinctly. I just can't believe the difference this has made. I feel like this is the way that this guitar was always made to sound. I have no idea why Fender are not fitting these as stock to their US guitars.

The quality of the harness is excellent. Took a few weeks to arrive in the UK from New Zealand but no messing around with taxes.

So clean, no OCD here.

Such a nice modern setup, easy install. Striping the wires was probably the hardest thing I did.

Nice and neat. Nice soldering seems well built. Couldn't use because of pot difference spacing but decided to keep for a different build.

Squire Strat Upgrade

I purchased loaded pickguard with Tonerider TRS1 Pure Vintage for a Squire Stratocaster (SSS). The installation took about 45 minutes (add time for cleaning/re-stringing). This is a super easy install/upgrade and my guitar looks and sounds great (much improved).

Rewarding - Squier VM jazz bass.

I had a bit of a problem with short leads from the neck pup I had to work around.
It felt like I could use a third hand sometimes trying to get the wire in its proper place. But…..
It was well worth it. The improvement in tone is phenomenal. Precise and clear.
This Squier VM never sounded so good.
Thanks.

P bass controls

Noticed the difference immediately! I’m impressed with the quality and feel of the product. Very easy to install and the instant surprise of clear clean notes. I want to do all my basses now.

Incredible pickguard

So simple to install, fit right into my Strat. Love the Blender feature and a master tone control. So many Fenders lack a tone control for the Bridge pickup. Buying another for a different Strat. Obsidian seems to be the only quality option for solderless Pickguards in Black!

Fantastic Harness!

Installed this in a 1990 Les Paul Custom and very pleased with the results. It sounded great before but this improved the sound even more. Guess my wires were getting a bit old. It was extremely easy to install and had no issues fitting it in and t he original knobs fit too. Love the 50s/60s switch option as well.
