"WARNING - SERIOUS CAVEATS!"

I got this wiring kit to upgrade my Epiphone SG G-400 Pro. I already knew that I'd have to do some hole widening for the volume, tone, selector switch, and input jack. So, I set about doing that. I put it all together and realized there were some problems. Don't get me wrong, it works..... kind of.Problem 1: Even with the Seymour-Duncan 'Hot Rodded' pickup set wires where they're supposed to be, there is a slight grounding buzz. I don't know if it's the terminal where you put the wires or what. I've reduced the ground hum, but not completely. Disappointing.Problem 2: You CAN'T use a Gibson/Epiphone selector switch tip for it. The screw is much fatter than the Gibson/Epiphone ones. So, you have to BUY ONE OF THEIR TIPS that conforms to their switch. That's ridiculous. I'm seriously tempted to just solder out the MojoTone switch and solder in the one that came with the Epiphone. I don't want to damage the switch by trying to widen out the Epiphone tip and forcing it on there. So, all in all, it works - but only just. This is not the quality I was expecting. And having proprietary switch tips is just ridiculous and underhanded.
