Gunstreet Jazzmaster Wiring Harness - Rhythm Circuit



Our kits are a perfect drop-in replacement for your Jazzmaster style guitar, whether you want to change how your instrument sounds, or just want to improve the durability we have something perfect for you!

  1. Red 50’s Wiring (Vintage High Pass Filter) This wiring was found in the first gen of electric guitars. It features a transparent sound as you roll off the volume at the cost of a steep volume taper and an on/off tone control that interacts a lot with your volume position
  2. Blue Modern Wiring: (Low pass Filter) This comes standard in most instruments and is what most people are familiar with when it comes to functionality. This style is what you call a low pass filter, meaning as you roll the volume down more highs will disappear.
  3. Green Volume Bleed (Modern High pass Filter) Often called a “treble bleed”, this circuit changes the modern wiring into a high pass filter. Get this kit if you like to use both your volume and tone control a lot and want more highs at lower volumes.

  • Converting an Import or MIJ guitar to US spec
    • Bourns or CTS pots will require you to have a US spec Pickgraud as the pot holes have to be 3/8th. Double check if your pickgraud is already 3/8th before replacing. Some guitars come stock with a US spec pickguard even though they have metric pots.
    • If swapping to CTS you will need new "1/4th" knobs for the solid shaft version, or 24 tooth "fine" knurled knobs if you choose knurled
  • Getting the correct knob can stop you from damaging the pot when installing
    • if installing CTS in your Made in Mexico guitar, you will need new "1/4th" knobs as the stock 6mm knobs wont fit
    • Choosing the Bourns low friction Version you will require an 18th tooth "Coarse" Knurled knob
    • If buying knobs for your kit double check you are purchasing the correct knob pattern as each style will only fit their designed pot.
