Standard 3-Way Tele Wiring Harness with a push/pull Tone Control to Series/Parallel your pickups


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 over 25 years…

& we love what we do!

This is a Hoagland Custom EXCLUSIVE!

If you have a Tele and wish you could series/parallel your pickups but love the standard 3-way switch… THIS IS YOUR ANSWER!

We use a 250k push/pull pot in the tone position that, when pulled “UP”, throws your pickups in-series – which gives you better tone & a 15% boost in output!

When the tone control push/pull is in the “DOWN” position, it puts your pickups in-parallel (normal Tele tone).

Don’t settle for less than you want!

While all of our wiring solutions are built to be installed rather easily, we always recommend that you have a guitar professional at your local guitar shop install it for you. There are issues that sometimes come up during installation (grounding, shielding, etc.) and your local guitar tech is equipped to diagnose & handle those for you.

Contact Hoagland Custom with any questions regarding this wiring solution, our custom, handcrafted Hoagland Custom pickups, or any other guitar wiring solution that you might need.
