    Hi there!

    My good buddy is insisting on upgrading his early 2000s MIK casino's pickups and I suggested he starts with replacing the other electronics first. I've done a little research and can only seem to find wiring harnesses in the >$100 range. Anybody have any good, less expensive, suggestions? I'd really appreciate your input.

    Thanks!

    He could by a kit and assemble it himself.

    Rewiring that guitar is no walk in the sunshine, I did it to my Sheraton.
    I bought all my parts from StewMac.

    there are plenty of options under $100 If he can solder and there are plenty of places where he can get parts.

    it can be a b*tch to get the harness in through the f hole though.

    always read that hollow bodies were not as easy as LPs and SGs to replace electronic.

    I fed fishing line through the pot and switch holes and tied it to the pots/switch. Then wiggled it all in through the f hole and pulled it into place. Just make sure the pots you buy will go through before you wire it all up. I got lucky, the CTS pots just barely fit through. Have fun!
    Edit to add, this was on a Sheraton.
