The wiring and construction of this Prewired Kit is the same as the Flying V models from 1958. The kit is available as 50's Vintage or Original '58 Flying V Wiring.

What's the difference between Gibson 50's vs. Original '58 Wiring?

 

50's Wiring

  •     when turning down the Volume more heights are remaining
  •     a turn of the Tone also affects the Volume
  •     with the Volume fully turned up there's a little more clarity and output

Original '58 Wiring

  •    better Volume control
  •    turning the Tone does not change the Volume
  •    significant loss of height when turning down the Volume (can be reduced with a Treble Bleed)

Why a Prewired GUITAR WIRING HArness from Arty's Custom Guitars?

 

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.
