I'm looking to upgrade the PCB based wiring in my 2008 SG Special.
Everyone shouts about the RS wiring, but I've seen a few similar harness's on ebay, such as

Gibson SG reproduction bumble bee wiring harness on eBay (end time 19-Nov-09 23:53:29 GMT)

and

SG WIRING HARNESS CTS SWITCHCRAFT SPRAGUE GIBSON on eBay (end time 07-Nov-09 17:17:04 GMT)

The prices vary somewhat, I'm interested in knowing what the bennefits of RS would be against the other harness's. Is there much difference at the end of the day ?

You'll soon find out that there's RS kits, and then everyone else...no one else has the SuperPot, which outperforms any audio taper pot.

Those "repro" bumblebee caps in the first auction are fakes and just junk that Gibson is putting in their guitars; the orange drops in the 2nd auction aren't much better.


The biggest laugh I get at both those auctions is that they both cost MORE than an RS kit, which is infinitely better in quality and TONE.
