Up for consideration is a 1959 Gibson Wiring Harness and output jack, that until recently was installed in an all-original mint-condition 1x PU 1959 Gibson ES-225 originally purchased for $3,500 a few years ago at Gruhn Guitars. This 1x center PU guitar was modified to 3x PU, and so the original 1959 parts are now available. Some people feel that the 1950s wire (in both the harness and the PU winding) has an impact on the guitar's tone, while others want to restore a late 50s guitar back to stock. In any event, here is a good opportunity to get a 1959 jack and wire that has spent the last 55 years in the original guitar!!!

CLASSIC VINTAGE PARTS
Original Vintage Parts have an argument for them that not only do they increase a guitars value by being 100% original era parts, but the tone is not the product of one part alone, but was a system of parts, that included the more pure wiring from the 1950s. I have seen some estimates that valued the 1959 output jack alone at $500, in an effort to mod a current Les Paul to 100% vintage parts for superior tone. At any rate, here you will find the 1959 jack and wire available for a much discounted rate!!!
