Hoagland Custom has specialized in custom guitar wiring and pickup making for over 25 years and we love what we do!
This Tele “SUPER” 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.
You must have 2 splittable humbuckers (4 or 5 wires) to use this wiring harness.
Our Hoagland Custom Tele SUPER4 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.

While all of our wiring solutions are built to be installed rather easily, some are more complex than others and we always recommend that you have a guitar professional at your local guitar shop install it for you.
