Our Custom LP50-SPLIT Les Paul Wiring Harness is built to easily drop into your guitar and totally transform your tone. The wiring scheme provides a tight, transparent tone. Unlike modern wiring schemes, it features a reduced treble cut, when rolling back the volume control. The highs sound clearer, especially with the volume pot rolled back. This harness effectively gives you a treble bleed kit function on each volume pot, without adding the extra caps and resistors. The Push / Pull tone pots will split each respective pickup. If you are looking to clean up your tone and let your pickups sing through, then the LP50-SPLIT is for you.
All 920D Custom products are highlighted with our signature orange wire. Gavitt Wire, a leading producer of premium guitar wire, has agreed to custom manufacture our signature cloth covered pushback wire, and we believe it is the perfect choice for hotrodding your guitar. The wire is built with an outer waxed cotton layer and an inner Celanese braid that provides impressive ruggedness while still maintaining a 22 gauge thickness. Limiting the amount of wire on each build compliments your choice of pickups by creating the perfect balance between capacitance and resistance.
Please note: This kit is designed for Gibson Les Paul Historic Reissue or vintage guitars that use long shaft pots (all Historic guitars and Gibson LPs made before 1978). Also, CTS pots require a 3/8" hole (in the top of your guitar); most USA made guitars are drilled this way, however imported guitars often are not. Metric knobs should be modified (drilled out) before use with CTS standard spec pots.
920D Custom 450G Series Potentiometers:
920D Custom potentiometers are used in this build. Our pots are manufactured by CTS to our exact specifications and are metered for accuracy before being used in any 920D Custom gear.
We specify a 10% audio taper, accompanied with a low rotational torque rating of 0.50-2.00 in.oz (compared to the industry standard 0.75-6.00 in.oz rating) to provide a buttery knob sweep.
We hold potentiometer tolerances to ±10%. The industry standard is ±20%. Tightening potentiometer tolerances will help you accurately shape your tone.
Pure Tone 1/4" Output Jack:
We exclusively use Pure Tone output jacks in all builds. Why? Because they're unquestionably better than the old, industry standard. Period.
We've all heard the crackle of a weak connection caused by pressure grounds. This is due to the old style jack only having 1 squared-off point of contact trying to meet a rounded quarter inch plug. Pure Tone has completely changed that.
Pure Tone's multi-contact quarter inch output jack has 4 rounded contact points that hold the quarter inch plug firmly in place. With 4 times the contact points, all of the dreaded cracks, snaps, and pops are gone for good. Trust us, the second you plug into this jack, you'll never want to go back.
Hand-Built In The U.S.A.:
All 920D Custom creations are hand-built by experienced technicians at our shop in Greenbrier, Arkansas. We treat your new gear like it's going into one of our own guitars. Every millimeter of wire is cut precisely, every solder joint is perfectly smooth and symmetrical, and every bend is purposeful and direct. We hold everything to a tremendous level of quality because we know the smallest details matter and we take great pride in our work.
