SOLDERLESS – Hoagland Custom Tele Wiring Harness w/4-Way Switching – EASY Install!


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


Hoagland Custom, located in sunny Fernandina Beach, Florida, has specialized in custom guitar wiring and pickup making for almost 30 years…

& we love what we do!

This SOLDERLESS 4-way Tele wiring harness is ROCK SOLID!

It features crimp-on solderless leads to the pickups. It also includes the crimp-on solderless connectors for the pickup leads themselves.

There is absolutely NO SOLDERING REQUIRED to install this wiring harness. VERY EASY to install!

Before using this 4-way harness, your neck pickup, if it has a metal cover, MUST have an independent ground wire on the cover. This should be done by a professional guitar tech if you do not want to perform this mod yourself.

It is a 4-way switching (for series/parallel) Telecaster wiring harness. It gives you an extra 4th position that unlocks a 15% power boost and a little better tone than the standard Tele wiring harness.

It is shown with the upgrade Mojo Dijon cap but the Sprague “Orange Drop” cap is the standard cap for this Tele wiring harness.

This does NOT include the control plate.
