920D Custom SG® Wiring Harness Upgrade

  • $149.99

Wiring Harness Upgrade - For Gibson and Epiphone SG® Guitars

Our Custom Wiring Harness Upgrades are built to quickly and easily drop into your guitar and totally transform your tone.

Genuine paper-in-oil capacitors will give your guitar the classic tone of a vintage SG®. The wiring scheme provides a tight, transparent tone. Unlike modern wiring schemes, it features a reduced treble cut, when rolling back the volume control. The highs sound clearer - especially with the volume pot rolled back. The harness effectively gives you a treble bleed kit function on each volume pot, without adding the extra caps and resistors.

If you are looking to clean up your tone and let your pickups sing through, the SG50-PIO is for you.

920D Custom Signature Wiring

All 920D Custom products are highlighted with our signature orange wire. Gavitt Wire, a leading producer of premium guitar wire, has agreed to custom manufacture our signature cloth covered pushback wire, and we believe it is the perfect choice for hotrodding your guitar. The wire is built with an outer waxed cotton layer and an inner Celanese braid that provides impressive ruggedness while still maintaining a 22 gauge thickness. Limiting the amount of wire on each build compliments your choice of pickups by creating the perfect balance between capacitance and resistance.

920D Custom 450G Series Potentiometers

920D Custom potentiometers are used in this build. Our pots are manufactured by CTS to our exact specifications and are metered for accuracy before being used in any 920D Custom gear.

We specify a 10% audio taper, accompanied with a low rotational torque rating of 0.50-2.00 in.oz (compared to the industry standard 0.75-6.00 in.oz rating) to provide a buttery knob sweep.

We hold potentiometer tolerances to ±10%. The industry standard is ±20%. Tightening potentiometer tolerances will help you accurately shape your tone.

Pure Tone 1/4" Output Jack

We exclusively use Pure Tone output jacks in all builds. Why? Because they're unquestionably better than the old, industry standard. Period.

We've all heard the crackle of a weak connection caused by pressure grounds. This is due to the old style jack only having 1 squared-off point of contact trying to meet a rounded quarter inch plug. Pure Tone has completely changed that.

Pure Tone's multi-contact quarter inch output jack has 4 rounded contact points that hold the quarter inch plug firmly in place. With 4 times the contact points, all of the dreaded cracks, snaps, and pops are gone for good. Trust us, the second you plug into this jack, you'll never want to go back.

WD Blue Tone Caps

We use non-inductive mylar and oil caps in our SG50-PIO Wiring Harness. They use oil-soaked mylar as di-electric material to produce an impressively smooth, natural sound. Dialing in these caps will greatly warm up your tone and cut back on the overly bright, ear-piercing frequencies.

Switchcraft 3-Way Switch

Our SG50-PIO is built using a genuine Switchcraft 3-Way Switch - which are well known for their durability and noise-free reliability. Switchcraft switches are rated to last a lifetime. This switch is, hands-down, the switch you want in your guitar.

Hand-Built In The U.S.A.

All 920D Custom creations are hand-built by experienced technicians at our shop in Greenbrier, Arkansas. We treat your new gear like it's going into one of our own guitars.
