I’m considering changing out the pickups and PCB harness out of my 2020 Classic
When buying a prewired harness should I get short or long pots for this model ?

What pickups are you thinking of putting in?

I’m not sure to be honest, but I do like A2/A4 unpotted PAF type clones
Probably a set of Med output PAFS
Maybe Lollar or Fralin or OX4

Ordered a set of SD CS Angus Young pickups and a whole new wiring harness is going in with them
Will take a few weeks by the time they arrive and I get them installed

Good luck, please keep us informed. More information on your wiring harness would also be of interest.

Very nice, thank you for sharing your wiring harness information. I’m guessing the plate drops onto the floor of the control cavity and then soldering in the pups, Jack, and switch. It looks like you’ve got very nice electronics for your Lp.

I’ve only recently become aware of the effect of a treble bleed circuit, having spent most of the past 40 years playing acoustics. I guess I’m wondering why treble bleed isn’t standard. Yes, extra parts increase the cost, but it seems that the benefits would be worth the relatively nominal cost.
