The Solderless journey

The Solderless journey

I've dedicated some time today to making a solderless harness. The first I made using these connectors is sitting in the McNelly Pickups demo guitar and they're proving to be nice and reliable. So I thought I'd have a run at testing the layout and approach of the solderless connections in the trusty Telecaster format. So far so good!
It'll be a little while yet before these become part of my harness range, but when they are, they will hopefully help those who are daunted by the humble soldering iron (you really shouldn't be though, if I can wield one, then anyone can!) & of course help those who enjoy swapping pickups regularly for various sounds!

How to Guide - Fitting a 4-way Pre-Wired Harness to a Telecaster!

A very long overdue 'how to guide' post here today looking at the step by step process of installing one of our Signature Series 4 way Telecaster wiring harnesses along with a fresh set of pickups! The 4 way harness takes your traditional 3 pickup positions of neck only, neck and bridge parallel and bridge only, but adds a 4th position where the neck and bridge are in series providing a beefier tone. It requires a little more work than a standard 3 way, but the results are great!

I want to replace my guitar's wiring, would it make a difference?

I want to replace my guitar's wiring, would it make a difference?

Replacing, or in some cases, upgrading your guitar's wiring may be a matter of necessity if there are niggling faults like faulty switches or noisy pots perhaps. But you may also have considered replacing it as a way of improving or modifying the guitar too. So the big question is of course, would it make any difference?
That's ultimately what I'm hoping to address in this post! I'm looking to touch on the various aspects of guitar wiring components, what to look for and why it would, or wouldn't positively help the guitar in question sound it's best.
