Hoagland Custom Tele Wiring for 2 Humbuckers – 4-Way “Positions Mod” – Splits the humbuckers & Series/Parallel Switching


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 almost 30 years…

& we love what we do!

This is an ALL NEW Hoagland Custom Tele wiring harness for 2 humbucker Telecasters!

This particular Hoagland Custom wiring harness has our 4-way switching “Positions Mod” and makes more sense than the standard 4-way switching.

It fits easily right into the Tele electronics cutout and is simple to solder in. We include a very easy-to-understand wiring diagram.

This DOES NOT include the control plate although control plates 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!
