ObsidianWire LP Custom SC 60s  (Split Coil) for Les Paul®

ObsidianWire LP Custom SC 60s (Split Coil) for Les Paul®


Humbuckers to Singlecoils and Back Again

Coil Tap Wiring for Les Paul®

Split your humbuckers into single coils for classic, low output spank, and back again with a tap of the volume control.   

A pop in replacement for your Gibson® Les Paul® wiring harness.

The ObsidianWire Custom SC is a Split Coil / Coil Tap upgrade wiring harness for your Les Paul®. The upgrade uses premium CTS push / Pull pots for ultimate tonal flexibility, and saves you a whole lot of work by making the install super easy and 100% solder-less.

(requires 4 conductor pickups)

ObsidianWire SC Switching

Split your humbucker pickups into single coils, allowing for Strat® or Tele® like tones, and back again with a push or pull of the volume control.

ObsidianWire 60s - Cut Through at Any Volume

The ObsidianWire 60s wiring retains treble when you roll back the volume control allowing you to retain your overall tone and cut through at lower volumes. The controls are more intuitive with the 60s set, with the tone control changing tone and the volume control changing the volume.

Great product but difficult to fit to my Epiphone LP

Great product and very prompt dispatch, however the Obsidianwire harness does NOT fit all Epiphone Les Paul models (easily anyway...).

I fitted this to an Epiphone Standard Plus Top Pro from about 2015. After 5 hours of tricky work I managed to squeeze it in, the switch cavity needed to be enlarged to fit the wider switch, the main cavity needed to be enlarged in several places, including to allow the pickup and switch wires to enter the cavity and the holes for the knobs as well as needing widening were misaligned. If you are not confident with doing some quite major surgery to the woodwork of your guitar I would think twice about installing this harness.

HOWEVER it does sound AMAZING, it has completely transformed the sound of the guitar, the volume knobs are actually useable (rather than virtually no difference between 2 and 8 on the old ones) and the tone is hugely improved with way more treble and clarity. Also any future pickup changes will be a doddle with the solderless connectors.

A fully dimensions diagram of the harness and switch would be very useful to check how easily it will fit.

Obsidian 60s Les Paul

Just installed the Obsidian into my Les Paul, and as well as being easy to install it has given a much clearer tone and cut compared to the stock PCB board that was fitted to my 2017 Les Paul Standard. I like to play around with pickups but i dont like the fuss and time it takes when you have to solder them and mess. So this is just perfect for me! Thanks to the guys at El Toro for supplying my Obsidian with speedy delivery and a brilliant service! I can recommend you give one a try if your thinking about it!
