Hoagland Custom has specialized in custom guitar wiring and pickup making for over 25 years and we love what we do!
This Tele wiring harness gives you better tone & more output power!
It has a standard 3-way lever style switch and looks like a regular Tele wiring harness. BUT… it’s hiding a secret! Pull up on the volume knob and this harness sends your signal direct to your amplifier, bypassing all of the resistance of your volume & tone controls for more power and MUCH better tone!
It removes the volume & tone control from the circuit.
