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

Hoagland Custom, located in sunny Fernandina Beach, Florida, has specialized in custom guitar wiring and pickup making for over 25 years…

& we love what we do!

This custom Tele wiring harness gives you better tone & more output power!

This is built specifically for 2 single coils. It has a standard 3-way lever style switch and looks like a regular Tele wiring harness. BUT… it’s hiding a couple of secrets!

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 load of the volume & tone control from the circuit.

BUT… if you decide that you want to use your tone control to warm up that Tele twang, it has our “Dual Cap” system on the tone control! Roll the pot (from the center position on the pot) down a little and it rolls in the .047mfd cap. Roll it up from the center position and you roll in the .022mfd cap. The best of both capacitor worlds built into one pot!

AND it has great paper-in-oil caps!

This is a Top-of-the-Line HOAGLAND CUSTOM wiring harness and is drop-in ready!
