The circuitry of this Prewired Kit is also known as PTB (Passive Treble/Bass), and was designed by Leo Fender for the G&L Legacy. The Wiring has a Master Volume, a Treble Control (the usual Tone Pot) in the middle, and a Bass Control Pot that allows you to cut the bass. By turning the bass away, a clear and airy dynamic sound is created, which is also ideal for use in combination with various effect pedals. This kit is currently my absolute favourite for the Strat. This kit is equipped with a treble bleed mod. The treble bleed allows you to use the volume pot over the entire bandwidth without losing the treble.

BECAUSE WE ARE ONLY SATISFIED WITH THE BEST.
All our prewired kits have matched pots and caps. This means that we measure all potentiometers and capacitors before installation, select them, and use them according to their values where they deliver the best possible result in combination with the pickups. This is important because original pots have tolerances of up to +-20%. In extreme cases, a 500k pot can have values of only 400k or up to 600k ohms. Not infrequently good pickups are replaced unnecessarily, because they sound muddy, weak or thin. In reality, however, the problem is often not due to bad pickups, but simply to inferior wiring, which mercilessly destroys the actually perfect sound.
We compared enormous quantities of capacitors in interaction with various pickups and thus determined the most suitable tone caps under real conditions. The capacitors are hand-selected HQ film capacitors with very low tolerance, very similar in design to the originals from the fifties. The vintage paper wax skin gives the caps an additional look. Our capacitors are so close to the originals of the 50's that nobody will hear a difference.
In all our kits only the best components from well-known manufacturers like CTS, Switchcraft, CRL or Oak Grigsby are used. All kits are carefully manufactured in small quantities and professionally handcrafted, and delivered to satisfied customers all over the world.
