REVERSE-WIRED – “ULTIMATE TWANG” Tele Wiring Harness w/4-Way Switching

(1 customer review)


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


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 “Ultimate Twang” Telecaster wiring harness with 4-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 “ULTIMATE TWANG” Tele wiring harness gives you the most “twang” of all of our wiring harnesses. If you’re looking for that “Bruce Springsteen-style” twang, this is it!

The 4-way switch gives you an additional switch position… series/parallel switching. A GREAT option!
