This Tele wiring harness has ALL THE TOYS built right into it!

It is shown with an optional paper-in-oil capacitor.

This Tele wiring solution has 4-way switching that provides series/parallel wiring  AND a HIGH QUALITY CTS push/pull volume pot that gives you, with a simple pull of the knob, phase-reversing of the pickups giving you a very cool, inside out sounding, “squawky” tone…

Series/parallel with the 4-way switch.

Phase-reversing with the CTS push/pull volume pot.
