Stainless jumbo frets also show no wear anywhere along the length of the ebony fretboard. Plays beautifully with great action.

    RS Guitarworks Premium Modern Electronics Upgrade Kit - Long Shaft


    Product Description
    Who this kit is for: The Modern Upgrade Kits offer a more transparent, dynamic sound for anyone who is tired of not being able to use the controls on your guitar effectively. This kit is also great for those who are tired of losing tone and note-definition every time they roll their control past 8!! This kit is not for anyone who has a bright/harsh guitar tone. If this applies to you, you need to look into our Treble Tamer kit. This kit comes with LONG SHAFT pots, which is appropriate for the following guitars: All production Les Pauls® made since 1977. This does NOT include the Historic® series. If your guitar has a large Maple cap, then this kit is for you. Please Note: All guitars manufactured in Japan, China, Indonesia and Mexico use metric pots (6mm), and have metric sized holes drilled for the pots. All pots sold by RS Guitarworks use standard pots and hole diameters (3/8"). Therefore, holes in the guitar, plates and/or pickguards will need to be enlarged to 3/8" to fit properly. Also, metric knobs will not fit the RS pot shafts; most popular knobs are available on the store in new and aged versions. Please call us for details or questions about installation.

    What this is: For years, guitar manufacturers have chosen to cut corners on the electronics they have used, even in their top-of-the-line guitars. This kit is designed to utilize the best electronic components possible in your guitar. This kit is the culmination of thousands of hours of research and development into different guitar electronics and how each of them affects the overall tone of the guitar.

    What's in the kit:
    (2) 500K RS Long-Shaft SuperPots®- We designed these pots in conjunction with CTS. Used for the volume controls in the kit, these pots have a custom taper that gives you a noticeable difference between each number on your volume control. You can finally roll your volume down to 2 or 1 and not loose any clarity, even in the neck position!! Mil-spec construction and a smoother resistor path make this the best pot to ever be used in the guitar.

    (2) 500K CTS Long-Shaft Audio taper pots.

    (1) RS .022 GuitarCap®- The GuitarCap® is the first and only capacitor designed specifically for the guitar. This part is the only capacitor in the world that meets our stringent quality-control standards, not only because of its construction, but because of how great it sounds in the tone circuit!! The .022 microfarad GuitarCap® is best for the bridge position tone control of your guitar.

    (1) RS .015 GuitarCap®- This is the same great GuitarCap® as above, just in .015 microfarad. This is best used for the neck tone control.

    (1) Length bus wire- Used for the grounding in the circuit.

    (1) Color wiring diagram.

    How this kit improves your tone: All of the above components combine to create unprecedented clarity in your overall tone. This increase in clarity will also equate to an increase in note bloom, harmonic complexity, and, in some cases, sustain. Because this kit increases the usability and intuitiveness of the controls onboard your guitar, you will achieve tones that you didn't think were possible.
