The G&L Fallout is a great guitar with a lot of versatility, and we think it deserves the enhanced control, reliability and tone of an Emerson prewired assembly. Developed for UpFront Guitars, this kit features CTS hi-spec pots. These pots have a smooth audio taper, easy turning, and a super-tight tolerance. Many common pots are as much as +/- 20% and you'll really appreciate the full usable sweep these potentiometers

Also included is Emerson's own Paper-in-Oil capacitor. Made to Emerson specifications in the USA, these precision hermetically sealed components combine vintage sound and modern manufacturing techniques to maximize your guitar tone. Featuring military-spec tubular construction with sealed
glass ends, these components are perfectly sized for guitars.

The Switchcraft 3-way toggle is also more reliable than the standard Fallout switch, which we've found on occasion to be a little flaky. Depending on which Fallout you have, you may need to get a US-thread Switchcraft tip (we've got'em in stock).

The final improvement is using 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 (the tone control acts differently depending on where the volume is set, and reduces high frequency loss when the volume is turned down).

Featuring impeccable workmanship and the best available components, customers rave about how much better their guitars sound with Emerson Prewired assemblies. Get the Emerson upgrade and maximize the tone of your Fallout!
