Emerson's prewired kits are very popular... and for good reason; They improve your tone! They take great pride in using premium components that work and sound better than stock electronics found in your guitar. Their pots are hand-metered and matched for great consistency and even taper on both the volume and tone knob (better control when rolling down the volume knob... no more mud) The Emerson Paper in Oil capacitors sound amazing! Paper in Oil capacitors were used in vintage Fender and Gibsons for good reason... They sound amazing. Emerson's kits are painstakingly wired by hand one at a time in Broken Arrow Oklahoma, USA. They take great pride in their solder work and neatness when they craft their prewired kits. They build their kits to last a very long time and perform great. We think you will appreciate the detail both sonically and visually that goes into each and every one of the prewired kits.

**Installation Tips for Knobs on Split Shaft Pots: Emerson Pro split shaft pots are made to fit USA Spec 24 spline push-on knobs. Some USA & Import Guitars will need new USA Spec Knobs as even some US makers use import spec parts which will not work with Emerson's pots. They recommend that you don't rush the knob install process. If your knob is too tight and is not going on ,slightly crimp together the top of the potentiometers shaft ever so slightly so that when you go to push on the knob you don't damage the pot shaft by exerting too much downward pressure.
