Pre-Wired Guitar wiring harness | Telecaster Deluxe | Right Handed
I usually make harnesses to order, due to the variety of spec options that could be chosen across the whole range. The turnaround time for a harness orders is around 3 working days depending on quantity of orders in at the time and your order will be updated accordingly when it is dispatched. This turnaround time doesn't include the transit time. Thanks for your patience whilst I get your harness made!
Telecaster Customs & Deluxes are my personal favourite Telecaster variant. I love the larger pickguard, and the unique Wide Range Humbuckers. This Telecaster Deluxe harness is simply designed to get the most out of the Wide Range pickup configuration, and is wired in a traditional Telecaster way using the best components I can source.
I have intended for my wiring harnesses to be as simple as possible to install to your Telecaster Deluxe, as well as writing in depth fitting guides, how-to instructions documenting the step by step process as well as a simple to follow wiring diagram.
The parts I use, in particular the pots, are CTS branded pots which are imperial measurements. If you're fitting this harness to a far east built variant for example such as a Squier or similar, then you may have to widen the holes in the body to accommodate for these imperial measurement pots.
For reference, the CTS pots I use in this harness have a shaft diameter of 9.52mm.
You may also require new control knobs to fit the CTS pot 'split shaft' spline diameter of 5.95mm.
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 bridge volume pot to bridge tone pot - 53mm
These measurements were taken from a Genuine Fender pickguard, but I do allow for 'give' in the wire lengths between components to allow for small differences so there is some wiggle room for installation, it's not a 'fixed' measurement by any means. If these measurements are massively different to your guitar, just let me know the precise centre to centre measurements on yours and I will make it to suit that no problem at all.

Please note, this harness is supplied as a complete pre-wired harness. Some Tele Deluxe models in my experiences can have variations in how the body is routed at the factory. Some models have full accessible routing meaning the harness can be installed complete, whereas some models have wire channels that the wires feed through to the various routes. So please ensure your Tele Deluxe will suit a complete harness to be dropped in.
If you're upgrading your Telecaster Deluxe, why not consider upgrading the pickups too? I also offer the beautiful McNelly 'Wild Range' humbuckers which are McNelly's take on the classic WRH these great guitars have. You can find out more about the McNelly Wild Range pickups HERE
