The ObsidianWire Custom Split Coil for Les Paul 50's pre-wired kit - 500k CTS pots
ObsidianWire Custom SC (Split Coil) Pro-Wired Electronics for Les Paul® are a pop in replacement for your old Gibson® Les Paul® wiring harness. It adds valuable flexibility by allowing you to split your humbuckers (requires 4 conductor pickups) into single coils for classic, low output spank.
Best of all, ObsidianWire Pro-Wired Electronics are super easy to install, and allow for unlimited solder-less pickup changes with Plug, Play and Enjoy connectors.
The ObsidianWire SC set allows you to individually split your humbucker pickups into single coils, allowing for Strat® or Tele® like tones without changing pickups. Each pickup has its own switch, so you can split each one on its own, or both at the same time.
Best of all, the switch is incorporated into the volume controls, so there is no need to drill additional holes. Just pull up the corresponding volume control and the magic is done. Press it down, and you are back to the full humbucker power.

ObsidianWire 50s - Super Sweet to Full on Growls and Moans
The ObsidianWire 50s wiring allows for subtle amount of treble roll off when using the volume control which makes it perfect moving between sweet clean tones to full on crunch & lead. The tone and volume controls also become more interactive, so the tone control will slightly affect the volume and vice versa.

Attempting to use your old metric knobs will damage your new Pro-Wired Electronics.
