Super Sweet to Full on Growls and Moans - The Traditional Vintage 50's Pro-Wired Electronics for Les Paul:
ObsidianWire Traditional Vintage 50's Pro-Wired Electronics for Les Paul converts your guitar back to original 50's spec which has a number of advantages of the current factory method of wiring.
As you roll back your volume you will notice that the treble loss is greatly reduced to a much smoother level. This turns your volume control into the perfect tool for rolling between a super sweet clean tone with just the very top end knocked off, to a full on Les Paul style onslaught, with all of the growl and moan that the Les Paul is famous for.
Further more, by placing the tone control back behind the volume control, the two start to interact more dynamically with a turn of each affecting the response of the other.
