How to Guide - Fitting a 50's Style Pre-Wired Harness to an SG!

On-wards with my series of 'How to guides' showing the step-by-step process of installing one of my pre-wired guitar harnesses, this time for the iconic Gibson design, the SG. (Although this particular model is a Greco lawsuit era model, but let's not get into that too much eh!).
These models are great to work on in the sense that all of the electronics are accessible from a single control cavity, and you can even remove the pickups without taking off the strings too. So although the working space can feel a little cramped, the access to the control cavity is great and should make this a nice and simple 'how to' guide today.

I want to replace my guitar's wiring, would it make a difference?

Replacing, or in some cases, upgrading your guitar's wiring may be a matter of necessity if there are niggling faults like faulty switches or noisy pots perhaps. But you may also have considered replacing it as a way of improving or modifying the guitar too. So the big question is of course, would it make any difference?
That's ultimately what I'm hoping to address in this post! I'm looking to touch on the various aspects of guitar wiring components, what to look for and why it would, or wouldn't positively help the guitar in question sound it's best.
