“SUPER1” Tele Wiring Harness w/5-Way Switching – for 2 Humbuckers – Split Those Humbuckers!


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 Tele “SUPER1” mod is a great wiring harness for a 2 humbucker Tele!  It’s pickup-splitting Heaven! It also includes a treble bleed modification to help release some of those delicious humbucker highs at lower pot volumes.

This Hoagland Custom “SUPER1” Tele wiring harness splits both of your Tele pickups.

You must have 2 splittable humbuckers (either 4 or 5 wires) to use this Telecaster wiring harness.

Our Hoagland Custom Tele5-SUPER1 wiring harness uses a 5-way Oak Grigsby “Super Switch”. One note: “SUPER” switches are fairly wide and MAY require that you slightly rout your electronics cavity for them to fit.
