Les Paul/SG/Epi Dot Style Wiring Harness Kit – short-shaft pots – Hoagland Custom


High quality parts create GREAT tone…



Hoagland Custom is a guitar custom shop located in Fernandina Beach, Florida.

This is a complete Les Paul/SG/335/Epi Dot style 2 volume, 2 tone control, 3-way toggle switch wiring harness kit. It includes everything that you need (aside from the soldering gun) to build a very high quality wiring harness for your Les Paul, SG, 335, Epi Dot or other 2 volume, 2 tone controls guitar.

Kit Components:

  • 4 – 500k CTS brand audio taper, short-shaft (3/8″ or 9mm) volume & tone controls
  • 2 – .047 value Sprague “Orange Drop” capacitors
  • 1 – 3-way toggle switch, short-shank
  • 1 Switchcraft output jack
  • 4′ of vintage style, cloth-covered wire (24″ each of black and white)
  • 18″ each of red, white, black, & green plastic coated wire
  • a detailed, easy to understand wiring diagram (not a technical sheet)
  • a generous amount of solder

The short-shaft pots have a 9mm threaded section and should fit through thinner guitar tops. Please measure the thickness of your guitar top before you buy! We also offer the same wiring harness with long-shaft pots (3/4″ or 19mm threaded sections) if that is what you need.


  • P1 – Bridge pickup only
  • P2 – Neck & bridge pickups
  • P3 – Neck pickup only

While all of our pickup & wiring solutions & kits are built to be installed rather easily by most do-it-yourselfers, we always recommend that you have a guitar professional at your local guitar shop install them for you.

This Les Paul/SG/335/Epi Dot style wiring harness is not considered complex and should be easy for a beginning DIY’er.

Contact Hoagland Custom with any questions regarding these handcrafted Hoagland Custom pickups, or any other guitar wiring solution that you might need.
