Our Vintage kits are comprised of components that are designed to capture the tone and feel of vintage instruments while incorporating consistency and reliability. These brands are regularly used in some of the most demanding environments and they stand up to years of use (and abuse) and continue to provide outstanding performance. You will immediately notice a more transparent tone with a fuller range than before. CTS vintage taper pots also have less rotating resistance for easy volume and tone changes, making volume swells and wah effects effortless.

The Les Paul Vintage Wiring Kit includes the following components:

  • CTS 500k vintage taper long shaft pots
  • Switchcraft 3-way long frame switch
  • Extended deep nut for Switchcraft switch
  • Russian K40Y-9 NOS .022uf and .015uf paper-in-oil capacitors
  • Treble bleed capacitor and resistor mods
  • Switchcraft jack
  • 5′ braided shield wire
  • 2′ black cloth push-back wire
  • 2′ white cloth push-back wire

You can substitute a Switchcraft short frame switch in place of the long frame switch and you can substitute any of the following K40Y-9 PIO caps: .033uf, .022uf, .015uf, and .010uf.  Just message me and I'll make the change before the kit is shipped.

NOTE: All CTS and Switchcraft components are manufactured to standard US specs. If your guitar was made outside the US, there’s a good chance that it has components that were built to metric specs (even some US-built guitars have metric components). In order to upgrade to US components you may need to widen the openings where the pots mount to the body or pickguard. If you have questions or need advice on upgrading your guitar, please contact us.

We combine items for reduced shipping costs. Any amount that you pay over the combined shipping cost will be refunded. All items are usually shipped the next business day once the payment is received. Please check out the Red Star Guitars website for a wide selection of instruments, parts, accessories, and articles.

Shipping Policy

Ships from Olympia, WA, United States to:

Continental U.S.

Items will be shipped by USPS or FedEx, depending on the weight of the entire order. Due to increasing shipping rates, the minimum shipping charge is $3.95 which includes tracking. I combine items for reduced shipping costs.  Any amount that you pay over the combined shipping cost will be refunded. I am currently only shipping within the US. I generally ship Monday - Friday and most orders are shipped the next business day.

Regarding Sale Tax: As of April 1 2019, Reverb began collecting sales tax on orders shipped outside of WA. For items that I ship to WA, I collect the sales tax but for orders shipped outside WA, Reverb collects the sales tax. So if you are not located in WA but you are being charged sales tax, that's a Reverb thing and completely out of my control. However, if you go to the Red Star Guitars website, the same item can be ordered without sales tax (and most likely with a lower price).
