Hoagland Custom has specialized in custom guitar wiring and pickup making for over 25 years and we love what we do!
This is a Hoagland Custom EXCLUSIVE!
If you have a Tele with a humbucker in the neck position and a single coil in the bridge position, you’ve had a tough time in the past trying to figure out whether you need 500k pots (as is standard for your humbucker) or 250k pots (as is standard for your bridge single coil).
We use a 500k push/pull pot for the neck humbucker that, in the “DOWN” position, allows you to control the volume and, in the “UP” position, allows you to control the tone. We also use a .022mfd value capacitor (the standard value for humbuckers) on this control so it is perfect for your neck humbucker.
For the single coil Tele bridge pickup, we use a 250k value push/pull pot that, in the “DOWN” position, allows you volume control and , in the “UP” position, gives you tone control over the bridge pickup. We use a .047mfd value cap on this control which is standard for a single coil.
Don’t settle for the wrong value of pots when you have a humbucker & a single coil combination!

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, shielding, etc.) and your local guitar tech is equipped to diagnose & handle those for you.
