Hoagland Custom, located in sunny Fernandina Beach, Florida, has been building high quality guitar wiring harnesses & pickups for over 25 years… & we love what we do!
This is a REVERSE-WIRED Standard Telecaster wiring harness with 3-way switching… that is, the switch is located at the bottom of the wiring harness toward the output jack & the volume control is at the top towards the neck.
A lot of players like this setup because it keeps them from accidently hitting the switch lever & changing pickup selections in the middle of a tune. The switch is towards the jack which is out of the way of strumming.
This Tele wiring harness is rock solid!
It is a standard 3-way switching Telecaster wiring harness.
