Will this fit my guitar?
Our pre-wired Gibson & Epiphone Thunderbird Bass Vintage Wiring Harness is wired to fit genuine Gibson or Epiphone guitars. If installing into an imported model or a DIY guitar kit you will need to ensure the Potentiometer holes on the control plate will take CTS pots (approx 10mm). This can be done using a round file or carefully with a 10mm drill.
