Easy upgrade

I put this is my Les Paul Tribute and couldn’t be happier. Wider tone control range, more effective volume control so clean to dirty sound tweaks are easier. It only took about 15 minutes to install and worked perfectly 1st try. I tried one of the other solderless systems before and it was difficult to install with tiny screws and never did work right. Obsidian is definitely the way to go - Highly Recommend!

This Is my third one!

I have built three Jazz Bass variations over the last 12 years, my first one was a fretless, and it never really sounded right and the tone was off. I Finally got around to installing your Vintage JB controls and now it sounds great. I really love your product!! Keep up the great work!

Easy installation and completely cleaned up neck pickup.

This kit is amazing. I replaced a PCB that came in a Les Paul this went in easily and it really transformed the 57 classic in the neck. It was muddy before and now it’s clear and wonderful.

Incredible

In about 20 minutes, I had a guitar that sat dormant and is being used quite heavily again. Thank you so much.

It sucks....

...that i now don't know what to do with my other guitars that don't have this upgrade!

Just kidding, i love them! The overall tone, 7-way switch and included treble bleed mod are exceptional and a lot of fun! Installing was incredibly easy!

Absolutely recommend it!

Wonderful!

I got it for a G&L tribute bass. The holes were not designed for it. I just widened the holes and done. It feels and sound so much better than the stock electronics. Can’t wait to put a different pickup. It will be a breeze.

I replaced the electronics and added a humbucker to an SSS Squire Strat. This made the process very easy! These are excellent quality too. I would buy Obsidian products again.

Incredible upgrade for my Strat

Previously, my Strat was wired with a super switch and an S1 so that it could switch between Strat switching and PRS switching. It never quite worked right. I stumbled upon this and decided to give it a shot. I took my time with the install, just to be safe. But it was easy enough to do.

Wow - the guitar sounds absolutely incredible now. So much clarity. I love the Gilmour mod; the extra tonal options are great. I can’t recommend this enough. If you’re on the fence, go for it!

For reference, the guitar is an American deluxe with DiMarzio pickups (Steve’s Special neck, Evo middle, and Breed bridge).

Always easy

This is my 6th or 7th ObsidianWire harness and I love the ease as well as top notch customer service. This is my second 7 Way and both are great. One was HSS and this one which is SSS. Gilmore on both. Beautiful! Can’t go wrong. Thanks guys fo a great product.

What I didn't like is the wires don't stay in the slot like their suppose to....

The best I’ve ever tried

Ease of installation aside, the range of the tone knob on my P bass now is a thing of beauty.
This is easily the best harness I’ve found and I’ve used a few.

Very pleased with The Custom Universal for Tele purchase

I'm very pleased with my Custom Universal for Tele purchase. Installation was very straight forward, though I wish the included instructions had been updated with the current shipping product. No bother though as I figured it out easily. The unit was installed in a Fender Telecaster Professional II with a TV Jones Powertron neck pickup and the original single coil bridge pickup. The results exceeded my expectations. The pot smoothness were superior to another brand of prewired solderless control harness I previously bought for another Telecaster. I'm very happy with my purchase!

Product didn't work, no customer service

Despite my best efforts and that of a very experienced guitar tech the unit would not work properly. Middle pickup would not come on (it was checked separately and is functional) in positions 2 and 3. Tried customer service and got no response. Very disappointing.

Fender Jazz Bass Kit I assembled from factory Parts

I had previously used standard components on this jazz bass but had problems.(dead pickup) I thought that the harness (circuit Board solder less install) would be better. As well as sound better, It did!! Im Happy!
I did have some problems with the wire ends from the pickups, not wanting to stay connected but using a tweezer to hold the wire in place did the job!
Very well Made! My wife said so, She is a certified solder and assembly person with over 30 years experience!
She makes things that go in airplanes.

Great product but…

I love the ease of install and the sound is great on the MKII for Les Paul (Vintage 50s & Modern 60s Wiring). However, I have contacted support because I only received a cream switch tip. I didnt see anything that determines what color you get while ordering the unit, just thought multiple colors would be included. The choice is there if buying a switch on Obsidians site but their support hasn't even contacted me yet about the issue. An all blacked out hardware guitar, with a cream switch tip, yuk.

Excellent products but !

This wiring harness is quality all the way. Fit my partscaster build perfectly and controls and sounds wonderful. The only complaint I have is the push in wiring terminals are a little finicky for instance a very small piece of wire broke off in one and it took me a bit of time to get cleared out of terminal I thought it had rendered this harness useless but my patience paid off and I was able to proceed,

T7 Custom

I upgrade my Nashville tele with T7 custom to have bridge and neck position. It has a push pull that adds another range of tones. This unit makes the pick ups sound with more detail and cleaner. Quick install!
