A 2 Humbucker Style Wiring Harness – 5-way lever switching that splits both humbuckers


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



Hoagland Custom has specialized in custom guitar wiring and pickup making for over 20 years and we love what we do!

This is a 2 humbucker style harness. It features a 5-way lever style switch that splits both of the humbuckers.

You MUST have 4 or 5 wire humbuckers that are splittable to purchase this wiring harness.

It features 2 short-shaft volume & tone controls and a 5-way CRL lever style switch. (Think Tele wiring)

It is “drop in ready”. That is, you only need to connect the pickups and ground wire… EASY!

  • Sprague “Orange Drop” poly capacitor, as standard & no additional cost
  • MojoTone Dijon Premium Foil/Film capacitor, $2 upgrade (From the manufacturer: “Mojotone Dijon capacitors are high quality foil/film capacitors made to our exact specification. We like to call them musical capacitors because of their good tone and transparency.”)
  • Talihan “Black Bee” paper-in-oil capacitor, $8 upgrade
  • Vitamin T “Silver Barrel” paper-in-oil capacitor, $11 upgrade
  • Auricap XO “Hi-Res” Sonically Transparent paper-in-oil capacitor, $20 upgrade. (From the manufacturer: “Auricap XO capacitors feature high-end engineering for unprecedented quality. Each 21 gauge lead contains 19-strands, and each strand is continuously cast in a vacuum, resulting in only 1 crystal barrier per foot (as opposed to the thousands in standard wire). The lead is then cryogenically treated and wrapped in red cross-linked polyethylene, resulting in permanently superior wire construction, throughput, and quality.”)

While all of our wiring solutions are built to be installed rather easily, we always recommend that you have a guitar professional at your local guitar shop install it for you. There are issues that sometimes come up during installation (grounding, etc.) and your local guitar tech is equipped to diagnose & handle those for you.
