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

& we love what we do!

This Tele “Series-Parallel” mod is a great wiring harness for a 2 humbucker Tele!

Our Hoagland Custom Tele “Series-Parallel” wiring harness uses a 5-way “Super Switch”. One note: “SUPER” switches are fairly wide and MAY require that you slightly rout your electronics cavity for them to fit.
