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 makes two versions of the Jazzmaster assembly: one featuring 500K pots and a .022µf capacitor the other with 1-MEG pots and a .047µf capacitor. The 1-MEG version is designed to have a brighter tone, while the 500K kit has a slightly more mellow tone and quicker tone roll-off similar to the traditional Jazzmaster. Wired with a super-simple 2-knob layout, and without the rhythm circuit and roller pots you are left with master volume, master tone and a pristine signal path.

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 modern manufacturing techniques to maximize your guitar tone. Featuring military-spec tubular construction with sealed glass ends, these components are perfectly sized for guitars, and look so cool you'll hate to put your guitar back together.

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).

Featuring outstanding workmanship and the best available components, customers rave about how much better their guitars sound with Emerson Prewired assemblies. Get an Emerson upgrade and find out what your controls were meant to do!
