This Emerson Custom Les Paul Prewired Kit is a must for any tone seeking junky. Meticulosity hand assembled in Broken Arrow, OK, the bumblebee paper in oil Emerson capacitors not only sounds amazing but features all that extra attention to detail that we love. One of the many reasons paper in oil capacitors are installed and sought after is that they sound more dynamic. The overall tone gets stronger, tighter, and more transparent. It’s difficult to put into words, but it's been described as more “in your face.” Also included are Emerson's PRO CTS Potentiometers which are hand metered and matched for great consistency and even taper on both volume and tone. No more quick dip or unnatural rolloff. The typical treble loss that occurs when rolling back the volume is much less pronounced than with standard wiring. Both the volume and tone controls become more responsive, and they react more smoothly without the usual hot spots. Kits are assembled one at a time, and are built to last.

The Les Paul Short Shaft Prewired Kit assembly is for standard Les Paul humbucker pickup configuration will install into most USA Gibson Les Pauls with no modification to the guitar. Better yet, have our team of expert luthiers install them for you.
