I have spent years perfecting this part of the builds, after all this is the engine room where the tones are shaped boosted and cut. with access to many of the great pre-amp makers of the world we can select the best combination of pickup and pre to suit whatever taste you are after. A friend once told me “why would you put a Camry motor in a Ferrari” By this very statement I apply the same detail to the inside as to the outside, I run a proper harness in which only the best parts are used. All solder joints are secured with heat shrink to their connections. And this is all seated in high quality conductive nickel paint.
