ES-335 Guitar Wiring Harness


Quality wiring kit for your Gibson, Epiphone or ES-335 copy.


Where it all began…

The ES-335 was first released by Gibson in 1958 and was the world’s first commercial thinline archtop semi-acoustic electric guitar.

The ES-335 was created to fill a middle ground where the Les Paul was lacking. It gave players a guitar which offered a warmer tone with almost as little feedback. The ES-335 became a guitar which is incredibly flexible and has been used in a range of music from rock to blues and jazz.

The ES-335 has been in production since it was first released and has been used by many high profile players such as Eric Clapton, Noel Gallagher and Richie Blackmore.

The electrical low-down…

The electrical components inside your guitar are almost never seen and thus, easily forgotten. A number of large guitar manufacturers know this and often “skimp” on the quality of components used and the way they wire them to save on costs.

Something not every player considers…

Replacing your guitar’s pickups is an easy way to improve or alter your tone. But what a lot of players don’t think about is how their signal is carried from the pickups to the amp.

Your signal passes through the guitars wiring harness before travelling to your amp. You do not want crappy components or dodgy wiring robbing you of tone!

This is where Guitar Sauce comes in…

I build your wiring harnesses using the best premium components available and I build them with 110% attention to detail. I also offer unlimited support for the lifetime of your harness.

Your new wiring harness will also help if your guitar is suffering from any of the following:

  • Scratchy pots
  • Signal cuts in and out
  • Tone controls make no difference to your tone
  • Tone becomes too muddy when rolling back the volume
  • Volume or tone controls have no “sweep” and are very abrupt

Your ES-335 wiring harness includes:

4x Premium CTS 500k audio pots
I’ve tried CTS pots from various suppliers and these are the best I have found. Solid brass shaft and bushing. C-clip reinforced shaft and a 30% taper which offers a perfect sweep. I make sure they are all matched to within a +/- 2% tolerance.

Switchcraft short straight toggle switch
The best toggle switch around. These are robust and will last for years.

2x Sprague Orange Drop .022uf capacitors
The classic capacitor used since the 1960’s. Known for their tone and reliability, these capacitors are used by many high-end guitar manufacturers and builders around the world.

Switchcraft mono output jack
The industry standard for output jacks. Solid and dependable.

Vintage style cloth covered 22 gauge black wiring
This quality vintage style wiring is pre-tinned which means it holds its shape and makes soldering a lot easier for you.

All kits are wired with 50’s style wiring.

Some extra info to help you out…

Your new wiring kit will fit directly into American made Gibson ES-335 and any other ES-335 style guitars which use imperial sized pots.

If your guitar is an Epiphone ES-335 or a ES-335 style guitar which currently uses metric sized pots then you will need to slightly widen the holes in the body to fit the upgraded CTS pots.

I have written a helpful guide here which covers the difference between imperial and metric guitar pots, how to check your current pots, and making sure your knobs will fit your new pots.
