Paul Reed Smith PRS Upgrade Wiring Kit | 3-Way Blade, Bourns 500 kΩ Pots, Treble Bleed, Switchcraft Jack
Here is a great way to upgrade your Import PRS or PRS style guitar with high quality components in one easy drop-in harness.
This kit includes:
2 x Bourns PBD241 Low-Friction 500 kΩ Audio Taper Potentiometers
1 x Orange Drop 716P 400V - Choose .022µF, .033µF, or .047µF Tone Capacitor - .022µF ships as default
1 x Orange Drop 716P 600V .001uF & 150k Ohm Resistor Treble Bleed Circuit
1 x CRL 3-Blade Switch - Requires U.S. Spec Switch Tip (Not Included)
1 x Switchcraft #11 Mono Output Jack
Simply drop this harness in to your guitar and connect the pickup leads to the selector switch leads and appropriate grounds.
Potentiometers are guaranteed to meter within their and matched to have a 2% +/- Tolerance. Tolerance matching in my opinion is not crucial in a master volume / master tone configuration - However - I believe that knowing what you're buying and putting into your guitar is the key to understanding and shaping your tone.
Note: Bourns Potentiometers Require 18-Spline Course Knurl Knobs which should match the Alpha Pots that come standard in import PRS guitars. Additionally, many import brands may require the mounting holes to be enlarged to accept the 3/8" potentiometer bushings.
