Emerson Prewired kits are unlike anything else on the market. Not content to use off-the-shelf parts, all Emerson kits feature 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

Emerson now has their own exclusive Paper-in-Oil capacitor. Made to Emerson specifications in the USA, these precision hermetically sealed components combine vintage sound and with modern reliability to maximize your tone. Featuring military-spec tubular construction with sealed glass ends, these components are perfectly sized for both bass and guitar.

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 (the tone control acts differently depending on where the volume is set). The vintage wiring configuration also results in less tonal loss as volume is reduced.

Featuring expert workmanship and the best available components, Emerson wiring kits produce meaningful results for short money.
