Here's a fantastic and simple way to upgrade your SG or SG-Style Guitar by giving it what it needs to perform at it best.  Don't think this is just for upgrading import guitars - Many Gibson guitar's pots and capacitors are not up to spec where any one potentiometer can be 120k ohms of resistance off from another (I've seen it on an R8).  Without consistency it's nearly impossible to obtain a desirable balance between pickups.  Without pots meeting proper specs your pickups will not perform as their builder intended.

This kit comes completely wired and ready to go, including:

  • 4 x Matched Potentiometers (Bourns or CTS) Spec'd to 500K+ Ohms
  • 2 x Russian Military Spec K40Y-9 Capacitors (.015µF, .022µF, or .033µF)
    • Looking for other capacitor values?  Shoot me a message!
  • 1 x Switchcraft Right Angle Toggle with choice of switch tip color
  • 1 x Switchcraft #11 Mono Output Jack

Note:  Potentiometers are Short (3/8") Split Shaft style designed for Press-On type knobs.  Bourns have 18-Spline Coarse Knurl and CTS have 24-Spline Fine Knurl.  If the pot's spline pattern does not match your knob's you may have a hard time installing your knobs resulting in a best a crooked knob and worst a damaged pot or cracked top.  These pots also require 3/8" diameter mounting hole and most import guitars' control knob holes will need to be enlarged to accommodate.
