Signature Series Pre-Wired Telecaster Deluxe harness kit
I usually make harnesses to order, due to the various options that could be chosen. The waiting time for harness orders is around 3-5 working days depending on quantity of orders in at the time. I'll always endeavor to turn orders around within that time frame and your order will be updated accordingly when dispatched.
About Pre-Wired Harnesses
After introducing harnesses to my line-up back in 2015, listening to customer feedback, undertaking my own testing & taking on board customer requests over that time, I've come to find my favourite specs & components to use. I decided to name these my 'Signature Series', which I suppose is just a fancy way of saying I trust these components in providing you & your guitar a solid replacement and/or upgrade.
I wrote an extensive article about replacing your guitar's wiring harness, answering the main questions about each component and the potential differences and improvements that can be had in doing so. To read the full article, click Here!
The series features a .022uF capacitor and Pure Tone multi contact jacks as standard. Along with the brilliant CTS 'TVT' series +/-10% tolerance pots, Gavitt 22AWG wire and a Switchcraft 3 way toggle switch
HERE is my fitting tips and guide which is a must read for any pre-wired harnesses orders.
If you're fitting this harness to perhaps a copy, standard import or Japanese built Telecaster Deluxe guitar for example which often have metric sized shaft pots originally, you may need to widen the holes in your pickguard etc to accommodate the slighty larger imperial US made quality pots we use. If you are fitting this harness to a USA built Telecaster Deluxe, there is a good chance it already has imperial, US spec components meaning this will be a direct fit. CTS 'TVT' pots I use in this harness have a shaft diameter of 9.5mm.
You may also require new control knobs to fit the CTS pot 'spline' diameter of 5.95mm with 24 splines.
If you do require US spec control knobs, we do carry a selection of popular options in stock and they can be viewed in the hardware & plastic hardware categories on the store.
Centre to centre measurements between components are -
Centre of switch to neck volume pot - 300mm
Centre of neck volume pot to neck tone pot - 53mm
Centre of neck volume pot to bridge volume pot - 40mm
Centre of bridge volume pot to bridge tone pot - 53mm
