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

Description

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!

If you think that the regular Tele 4-way switching positions are a little weird…  you’ll LOVE this wiring harness!

Normal Tele 4-way switches have the following positions:

  • P1 – bridge pickup
  • P2 – bridge & neck pickups, in-parallel (normal Tele tones)
  • P3 – neck pickup
  • P4 – bridge & neck pickups, in-series (a 15%boost in power and much better tone)

For a lot of people, that’s kind of a strange order. So, we’ve developed a more natural 4-way switching order with the bridge & neck combinations in P-2 & P-3.

We’ve developed this switching order:

  • P1 – bridge pickup only
  • P2 – neck & bridge, in-parallel (normal Tele tone)
  • P3 – neck & bridge, in-series (a 15%boost in power and much better tone!)
  • P4 – neck pickup only

This Tele wiring harness will give you an additional switch position and a cool extra tone that your standard 3-way Tele does not have.

It is a 4-way “series/parallel switching Telecaster wiring harness BUT…

It has different switching positions than a normal Tele 4-way.
4 switching positions that make more sense than the standard Tele 4-way.
