Emerson Custom Prewired Kit - PRS 4-knob

• HANDWIRED IN BROKEN ARROW, OKLAHOMA USA •

Our prewired kits are very popular... and for good reason; They improve your tone! We take great pride in using premium components that work and sound better than stock electronics found in your guitar. Our pots are hand metered and matched for great consistency and even taper on both the volume and tone knob (better control when rolling down the volume knob... no more mud) Our Emerson Paper in Oil capacitors sound amazing! Paper in Oil capacitors were used in vintage Fender and Gibsons for good reason... They sound amazing. Our kits are painstaking wired by hand one at a time in Broken Arrow Oklahoma, USA. We take great pride in our solder work and neatness when we craft our prewired kits. We build our kits to last a very long time and perform great. We think you will appreciate the detail both sonically and visually that goes into each and every one of our prewired kits.

This is a prewired harness for PRS 4-Knob Guitars. Carefully wired “50’s Style” and grounded with vintage spec buss wire for a great vintage tone. For import guitars you may need to enlarge the holes for the higher quality US spec electronics to fit and also you may need US Spec knobs (to accept 24 teeth split shafts).

Includes:

  • 4 x 500K Emerson PRO CTS Split Shaft Potentiometers 
  • 1 x Switchcraft J11 1/4" mono input jack (MADE IN USA) 
  • 2 x Emerson Bumblebee Paper in Oil Capacitors (1: 0.022uf Bridge, & 1: 0.015uf Neck) 
  • 1 x Wiring Diagram

What’s so special about ’50s style wiring? It affects your tone in three major ways:

  1. The overall tone gets stronger, tighter, and more transparent. It’s difficult to describe, but you might say it’s more “in your face.”
  2. The typical treble loss that occurs when rolling back the volume is much less than with standard wiring. Both the volume and tone controls become more responsive, and they react more smoothly without the usual hot spots. Another bonus: By simply rolling back your guitar volume a bit, you can clean up an overdriven amp without getting lost in the mix.
  3. The tone and the volume controls interact with each other—something you might be familiar with from certain tweed-era Fender tube amps. When you change the volume, the tone changes a little bit as well, and vice-versa. This may be strange at first, but you only need a few minutes to get used to it.

* Installation Tips: Emerson Pro split shaft pots are made to fit USA Spec 24 spline push-on knobs. Some USA & Import Guitars will need new USA Spec Knobs as even some US makers use import spec parts which will not work with our pots. We recommend that you don't rush the knob install process. If your knob is too tight and is not going on ,slightly crimp together the top of the potentiometers shaft ever so slightly so that when you go to push on the knob you don't damage the pot shaft by exerting too much downward pressure. If you have any questions regarding install please let us know. Thank you.

PLEASE NOTE: Scratch plate, switch tip, or knobs are not included.
