VIP 550k Short Shaft Audio Pots Centralab Specs (The Holy Grail of Guitar Potentiometers)
Yellow and Black Grade A Varnish Spaghetti Tubing
"In the late 50s, Gibson (and others) preferably used potentiometer by US maker Centralab. The audio taper of these vintage pots has since become synonymous with the perfect taper. It's pretty steep on top (great to "switch" from lead to rhythm) and musically to the end. No wonder people pay $150 or more for a single vintage potentiometer.
More than a year of R&D went into the VIPots. It included us buying and sacrificing several NOS Centralab pots from the 50s and massive analysis of their taper, torque, etc.
The VIPots are exact functional copies of the old potentiometers. The same audio taper, the same torque and US fine spline split shaft for a direct drop-in replacement. 550kOhm with 15% tolerance, putting them in the range of all the tested NOS pots."Capacitors

The tones are transparent and incredible . This is a Harness for the Very Serious Guitar Player who is a Tone Chaser.
All Materials assembled as 50s Wiring 50s Volume.
NOS Made by Sprague Roederstein /Germany, these are axial-leaded polyester film caps. The tone is similar to a Mullard Mustard. JEL personally located and imported these.
These Caps are excellent in a Guitar that has a wood resonance (Les Paul or an ES-175 or ES-335 as an example). They are transparent in tone. If your Guitar has a “woody” resonant primary tone, this cap will bring it all to the surface. They were featured in Dirk Wacker’s Capacitor Reviews in the March 11, 2010 Issue of Premier Guitar. Amazing Capacitor.
All Harnesses come signed with Individual Serial Number.
Wired with 20 AWG Bus Wire
