& we love what we do!

This is for the Jaguar upper control plate (in chrome) & upper electronics ONLY (it includes the roller knobs). This is the rhythm/lead 2-way slider switch and the 2 roller control pots/knobs.

Our Jaguar wiring solution is handcrafted here in our shop in Fernandina Beach, Florida. When possible, we use all US-made parts. Assembled with care and crafted by hand. We do not make this harness until you place your order. Each wiring harness is custom built to suit our customer’s needs. It drops right in and is very easy to install. This harness is complete and ready for installation into your Jaguar.

Depending on how your particular Jaguar is routed, you may (or may not) need to slightly adjust the depth of the cavity to accommodate the electronics.


To activate the Jaguar’s rhythm circuit–which is fully separate from the lead–simply move the upper slide switch to the “up” position (away from the neck). The two inside wheels on the upper pickguard next to the slide switch are the circuit’s volume and passive tone controls. The wheel nearest the slider switch will set your volume.

An important note: When in the rhythm setting, only your neck pickup will be operational–your bridge pickup will be deactivated. More than one unaware player has mistaken a Jaguar in rhythm mode for one with a faulty bridge pickup. Also, while in rhythm mode, the pickup selector switch and master volume and tone controls become non-functional.
