Bro, sa US ko nabili yung sa akin. Pero after ko nakabili nun, may nakita ako dito sa Pinas di ko lang maalala ung music store. Bantayan mo lang dito sa classifieds, meron yan. And nabanggit din dati sa akin ni Micsis na gumagawa sila ng bone nut.

Hope this helps.

Dreff try mo sa Music Source Cubao. Hanapin mo number nila and maybe ask if they can ship. I'm sure pwede yan.

They are not out of stock. Here are the links.  :-)

http://www.wdmusic.com/les_paul_wiring_kit_long.html (with long shaft pots)

Sir Chino, for MIC Epiphone Les Pauls, yung wiring kit na short ba yung dapat?

i'm also thinking of having this as another choice:

TIA  :)

Pwede yung short. Ang kalalabasan nun ay halos sakutuhan, parang flush down yung knob sa body. Could be good or bad. Yung stock pots ng MIC LP mo bro ay short shaft. So ganyan din more or less ang kalalabasan nung wiring kit.

Pwede rin yung long shaft kung gusto mo mas naka raise pa yung knobs with respect sa body.

Take note, though, na CTS pots ito. Fine knurled ang shafts, 24 spline. Yung stock pots ng MIC LP ay coarse knurled, 18 spline. Meaning, hindi magkakasya yung stock knobs mo dun sa CTS pots. Kung kukuha ka ng wiring kit or CTS pot or any pot na fine knurled (24 spline), kailangan magpalit ka ng knob na pang fine knurled din. Mga US spec knobs pwede, like orig gibson or so.. meron din sa WD music na mga Gibson knobs..

Masisira kasi yung knob (or pot) pag pinilit mo pagkasyahin tapos magkaiba sukat.. kung swertehin kang mapagkasya mo, panget naman ang ikot.. hindi pantay..  :lol:

Ok rin yung RS... mas mahal nga lang.. Sa mga gitara ko, ok na ako sa WD wiring kit.. magaganda naman yung mga components na kasama..

By the way, that long 3-way Switchcraft toggle switch won't fit sa MIC LP Epi.. Kailangan mo ay yung short na Switchcraft 3-way toggle kasi mas mahaba ang threaded shaft ng "short 3-way toggle" compared sa threaded shaft ng "long 3-way toggle". Don't be confused. Hehe.  :-)
