Pre-Wired Guitar wiring harness | Les Paul toggle switch kit

£29.16

About
The toggle switches on a Les Paul take on some serious use over the years, becoming a little noisy or loose feeling meaning sometimes it's just best to replace them. If you're not too confident with a soldering iron, it can be a frustrating task. I've had these harnesses available as an add on when ordering a Les Paul pot harness so have decided to make them available on their own too.
Depending on your intentions/preferences, I now offer the LP toggle switch harness wired 'traditionally' with outer braided wire, or prepared braided wire alongside cloth covered wire and a separate ground to simplify the install process. Neither is superior to the other, it comes down to your preferences, what wiring style you have in the guitar already or perhaps your intentions for the re-wire. 

Which wire is which?
To help make the install process easier, I use colour coded heat shrink and/or colour coded wires depending on the wire type chosen. So here is a list of which colour indicated wire connects where -

- Pure Tone Multi contact jack socket
- Choice of switch tip colour
- Soldered using R-Tech Premium Lead-Free (Sn95.5Ag3.9Cu0.6) 22swg Solder wire 
RoHS Compliant

Individual lead-outs - Gavitt USA 22AWG braided wire & 22AWG cloth covered Gavitt USA wire
Traditional braided style - Gavitt USA 22AWG braided wire

HERE is my fitting tips and guide which is a must read for any pre-wired harnesses orders.

They are each handwired by me, using quality and trusted components. I have opted to use the short frame version of Switchcrafts 3 way toggle as I have found from experience that it fits within the toggle cavity of a LP much better, meaning wires aren't squished in there, and also the threaded part is much longer meaning you won't need an additional recessed nut to fit. You can use the spin on nut provided with the switch. 
A great solution to replacing your LPs 3 way toggle with minimal soldering required.

Order times
I usually make harnesses to order, due to the variety of spec options that could be chosen across the whole range. The current turnaround time for harness orders is around 5-7 working days depending on quantity of orders in at the time and your order will be updated accordingly when it is dispatched. This turnaround time doesn't include the transit time. Thanks for your patience whilst I get your harness made!
