Bill Lawrence (his real name was Willi Lorenz Stich) was born in Germany in 1931 and became one of the country’s best guitarists of the post-WWII era. He was a busy session musician and jazz player who performed under the name Billy Lorento. Later on, he started a second career in the guitar industry under the name Bill Lawrence. He conceived many ground-breaking pickups designs as well as other musical instrument innovations. Sadly, he died in November 2013 at 82 years of age but his music and genius live on.
Basically, this wiring follows the standard Tele wiring schematic but substitutes a 5-way Strat style switch in place of the Tele traditional 3-way switch, unlocking 2 new tones for the Tele!

While we make all of our wiring harnesses to be installed rather easily, we always recommend that you take your guitar, Hoagland Custom wiring harness, and the wiring diagram to your local guitar technician for installation. There are a lot of variables (grounding, pickup wires colors, etc., etc.) and they will be equipped to get your guitar sounding it’s BEST!
