3 Humbucker Les Paul Style Wiring Harness – “Peter Frampton” Style


You bring the talent. We’ll supply the kick ass wiring…   



Hoagland Custom, located in sunny Fernandina Beach, Florida, has specialized in custom guitar wiring and pickup making for over 25 years…

& we love what we do!

This is a 3 humbucker Les Paul “Peter Frampton” style harness. It features a neck volume, a middle volume, a bridge volume, & a master tone control,  setup exactly like Peter Frampton’s Les Paul.

The middle pickup volume control blends the middle pickup in with the neck, the bridge, or both depending on which switch position you select.

It features long-shaft controls and should work perfectly with your arched top Les Paul.

It is “drop in ready”. That is, you only need to connect the pickups and ground wire… EASY!

Because not everyone needs a new switch, it is an option with this harness.
