REVERSE-WIRED – “ALL THE TOYS” Tele Wiring Harness w/4-Way Switching – Phase-Reverse & Series/Parallel


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


Hoagland Custom, located in sunny Fernandina Beach, Florida, has specialized in custom guitar wiring and pickup making for over 25 years…

& we love what we do!

This a REVERSE-WIRED Tele “All The Toys” wiring harness. That is, it is (from the neck side to the bridge side) Volume – Tone – Switch. The switch is at the bottom of the harness.

This is for a 2 single coil pickups Telecaster.

This Tele wiring harness (shown with the standard Sprague “Orange Drop” cap) has ALL THE TOYS built right into it!

Phase-reversing? YES!  Series/Parallel?  YES!

This Tele wiring solution has 4-way switching that provides series/parallel wiring AND a push/pull volume pot that gives you, with a simple pull of the knob, phase-reversing of the pickups giving you a very cool, inside out sounding, “squawky” tone…

Series/parallel with the 4-way switch.

Phase-reversing with the push/pull volume pot.

2 GREAT effects in a simple Tele wiring harness that is EASY to install!
