 Solder-less Install
 Solder-less Pickup Changes
 Traditional 50's Control Layout
 Volume Controls Slightly Reduce Treble for perfect clean tones
✔ Improved Clarity & Control  

Super Easy, Solder-less Install

All ObsidianWire Pro-Wired Electronics are super easy to install, and allow for solder-less pickup changes with ObsidianWire Plug, Play & Enjoy connectors.

 

Super Sweet to Full on Growls and Moans

 

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.

50’s drop in controls

What a difference. Installed the 50’s series controls in a new Epiphone Silverburst. Removed the push-pull pots. Changing the tone from the “stock (push/pull)” setup never gave it a better sound, IMO. It always sounded muddy and the volume dropped any time you pulled up pot. The Obsidian kit is awesome. Not only is the sound better, it also allows you to use the volume and tone knobs like they’re meant to be used. I had to ream the control holes to 3/8” and was expecting to do it after reading several threads and watching the old YouTube. Being solder less only makes it easier. Doing a custom solder job is a bit intimidating if you’ve never done one, I think. So pushing down a tab and sliding the wire in is WAY easier. Took about an hour to put in and wire up. I’m loving it. While it was out, I also installed a Seymour Duncan SH-2N and an SH-5 custom to take advantage of the upgraded electronics. It’s truly a different guitar.

Could not be easier

The toughest part of the whole job was expanding the holes in the guitar for the new pots to fit properly. This is easy to do with a Dremel tool and a cylindrical shaped sanding wheel. It took about 10 mins with frequent checks to make sure I wasn't over doing it. The wiring was a breeze and everything worked as it should the first time. After spending a day or so adjusting the new Seymour Duncan pickups height, I couldn't be happier. Buy Obsidians products with confidence!!
