“Brent Mason” Power Tele Wiring Harness w/4-Way Switching – for 3 Pickup Power Tele


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

SKU: HA-Tele4-BM Category:


This is a “Brent Mason” Telecaster wiring harness with 4-way switching…

If you have (or want to build) a Brent Mason “Power” Tele, this is the harness for you! It incorporates 4-way switching (rather than the standard 3-way switching) and is chock full of premium quality parts! As it does include a push/pull pot, some cavity alteration may be required. It is simple to solder in. We include a very easy-to-understand wiring diagram.

This wiring harness gives you the functionality of a Tele with series/parallel switching (a great option!) AND the independent volume control with the middle pickup.

The middle pickup is controlled by the center-mounted, push/pull pot on the control plate. It is NOT part of the 4-way switching. The middle pickup is always on and can be volume potted up or down with the push/pull pot.

This DOES NOT include the custom-drilled control plate but they are available.

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!
