Clean and Easy

Excellent product to ease fixing, experimenting, or overhauling your Stratocaster setup. The particular one I received looked professional and clean as soon as I took it out of the box. It actually helped me to focus on my own input into the work to make sure I was placing wires and pickups as correctly and accurate as this setup. Install was easy as hitting a bar chord. Don't forget the ground wire and this unit will cause you no sound issues. No noise when switching pickups. When turning volume and tone pots no scratchy sounds or spikes during the tonal transition. Again a clean setup that gives you a clean base line that does its job to not interfere with your playing and tone. Highly suggested and will be a go to for other repairs/projects requiring volume, switch, or tone pot switch outs.

Emerson Custom Prewired kit for Stratocasters

I recently installed the prewired kit and a set of Fender Custom Shop Hot 50's pickups. It was pretty easy. All I had to do was solder 3 wires (2 white;1yellow from the pickups to the selector switch. Then solder 3 ground wires from the pickups onto the back of the volume pot, and 3 more ground wires; 2 from the guitar (bridge & body) and 1 from the connecting jack to the volume pot. The diagrams included were clear to follow. When I plugged my Mexico made Strat into my 1966 Fender Super Reverb to my surprise a louder more defined sound with no noise interference. ( I installed the shield behind the pots) I was trying to achieve that glassy rhythm sound indicative of the Strat, which I discovered when I set the selector switch in 4th position. I found the sound I was trying to capture. Once again a big thank you to Matt McKible and Sweetwater, thanks guys.

Outstanding inprovement in Tone

My intention when I first heard of Emerson Customs was to buy a 5 way blender. But since there out of stock for the moment I decided to go traditional with the 5 way kit. I have to say it's amazing how much improvement you get in tone with these. It adds the extra tone control on the bridge pick up wich I belive a regular Strat does not have. Had a litle problem installing the input jack. Other than that everything works awsome. God bless!!!

Upgrade kit

I bought the Emerson pots (along with Texas Specials) and upgraded my Squier Deluxe Strat. Man, that guitar sounds amazing. I highly recommend these pots for your upgrade. You won't regret it.
