The buzz and the night!
Nagi, 05.11.2014
Kit mounted on a Japanese vintage (ibanez copy SG 1977) that I had equipped in sh8 first, then sh2 and 4 then without ever finding the sound nor the power (thinking that it might be microphones), until I say "like, and if I changed the electronics" without knowing if it would change something

Well I have to say that on the one hand I rediscovered my microphones, the tone, the volume knob and suddenly the guitar; (The Sh8 are bombs that were not highlighted by an electronics too cheap and too old)

And on the other hand the quality of the instrument to clearly evolved by the disappearance of parasites, the color and musicality of sound, harmonics much richer .... In short that happiness

I usually find everything too expensive Montreux but I think the c is the price (the kit is full)

Attention to the dimensions of the knobs which are the Gibson standards (big) which implies a widening of the cavities in the cavity and also Gibson knobs (it is only after the fourth commanded that I finally found the good ones, amber) even the Black knobs Gibson were not going (too little troup)

I now take the following part: If I want to change the pickups on an old guitar, then I change with the electronics, otherwise I leave everything original because I know that in both cases I would have a homogeneous sound

I think that new microphones on an old electronics with a probably tired condo can not be enhanced

On the other hand, changing the pickups on good guitars (SG standard, strat US etc) does not require changing the electronics because they are already well equipped

Wrong pickup cable here ....
Lukas Badtke, 27.03.2018
I've bought the Montreux SG wiring kit a while ago, when it was there it looked good, everything is normal, the pickup cable, however, is not shielded by plastic but kp something like aluminum, I have not thought anything bad. When I put in the pickups, I found out if you moved your guitar and came to the back plate, it crunches and crackles, damn loud, because the cables inside came together. I did not leave the cables long, but as short as possible.

Otherwise the kit is top, if you buy another pickup cable, everything will be fine;
