Emerson Custom Guitars

Emerson Custom Guitars is located in Broken Arrow Oklahoma and they make some of the nicest pre-wired control assemblies for Stratocaster, Telecaster, Les Paul and other popular guitar models. They use only high quality CTS potentiometers, Oak Grigsby switches, Switchcraft Jacks, top quality paper-in-oil (PIO) capacitors, and vintage cloth wiring. If you can install a pickup, you can install a pre-wired assembly and wring every ounce of tone out of your guitars. We have several popular models in stock and if you don't see what you are looking for, just ask. Emerson also makes some great pedals including their popular EM-Drive overdrive pedal, and will soon be releasing their Paragon distortion pedal.

Emerson Custom Guitars EM-Drive

The Emerson Custom Guitars EM-Drive is a very transparent drive pedal that's great when you want "more" of your guitar, but don't want to alter your guitar's tone. The volume knob offers plenty of neutral gain to give your guitar a transparent boost without any additional steely treble or boomy low end. Up through about two o'clock the gain knob provides just a wisp of "hair" and mild low end accentuation, and does a nice job of emulating a tube amp that's fully reached operating temperature. Beyond two o'clock the pedal gets warmer and grittier, but we love it more for what it doesn't do. Runs on 9 VDC power supply, tip negative.

Emerson Les Paul "Russian" Prewired Assembly

AN UPFRONT GUITARS EXCLUSIVE - The Emerson Les Paul "Russian" Prewired Assembly is a great upgrade for most American or Import Les Paul type guitars. NOS Russian paper in oil capacitors are much sought after for their warm and smooth roll off. Plus the high quality potentiometers and special volume control mod gives great tonal range and a warm vintage sound. This kit has the "Vintage" wiring style in which the tone capacitor is wired between the volume and tone pots rather that grounded directly to the tone pot. The vintage wiring gives great interaction between the volume and tone control, greatly expanding the tonal possibilities. We also outfitted this set with a .015µF capacitor for the neck position for a little cleaner turndown. For import guitars you may need to drill out the holes in the body to accept the  1/4" shaft American potentiometers. These kits feature:

  • CTS 500K Split shaft pots (3/4" length bushing)
  • Extra set of shaft nuts so you can adjust the kit for either long or short shaft applications
