Will this fit my guitar?
Our pre-wired Les Paul Wiring harness is wired to fit genuine Gibson & Epiphone models. If installing into an imported model / DIY guitar kit you will need to ensure the Potentiometer holes will take CTS pots (approx 10mm). This can be done using a round file or carefully with a 10mm drill.
Centre to centre measurements between components
Centre of neck volume pot and neck tone pot – 63mm.
Centre of neck volume pot and bridge volume pot – 50mm.

Measurements can sometimes vary slightly on some Les Paul models, so we allow plenty of movement in wire lengths between components to allow for a comfortable fit.
