Entry Series Pre-Wired Telecaster harness kit
About Pre-Wired Harnesses
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!
Pre-Wired harnesses offer a great solution to replace or upgrade your wiring with minimal soldering your end, as for some it's a daunting task. It may also be a great value alternative to buying all of the individual components. All harnesses are made by me here at the Home of Tone, to ensure the best possible workmanship I can.
About the 'Entry Series'
After a number of years of making my harnesses, from offering a range of options and further developing the product, it has lead me to this natural road. My Entry Series. This is a harness that offers a choice selection of upgrade parts over many stock items, at a more entry level price point. A chance to upgrade your guitar with some great components without breaking the bank.
The series features the affordable but great Orange Drop 716P capacitors and Switchcraft mono jack sockets as standard. Along with the brilliant CTS 'TVT' series +/-5% tolerance pots, German made solid copper 22awg wire with modern insulation and a lacquered cotton braid finish and a Oak 3 & 4 way wafer switch.
- CTS 'TVT' Series +/-5% Tolerance long shaft pots - 250k, solid shaft pots as standard on Tele kits.
- USA made Paper in oil capacitor. .022uF or .047uF Capacitors
- German made 22AWG wire
- Oak 3 & 4 way wafer switch
- Switchcraft mono jack socket
- Traditional Orientation. If you require 'reverse' orientation, please get in touch as I can do that for you with a £5 upcharge to cover extra wire and a little extra time in wiring it.
If you are ordering this wiring kit to go along with your McNelly Pickups, we would recommend the .022uF capacitor option as the McNelly range has been designed with that rating in mind. Also note, if you select the 4 way switch option, you will need to ground the neck pickup cover with an additional wire.
As these are made to order by hand, the waiting time is around 1 week depending on quantity of current orders and repair jobs in at the time.
If you have a Tele style guitar that isn't a Fender, I can happily make a harness to suit your guitar. So please feel free to get in touch, and we will compare measurements and obtain a quote for you.
Left Handed Options
I also make these in left handed orientation. As standard I make the left handed harnesses with traditional RH taper pots, because after a lot of research and customer orders over the years it seems 99.9% of Lefty players are used to traditional RH taper pots. If this is the case, simply put that you require a left handed harness in your order comments and I will make it for your LH Les Paul!
If you're used to LH taper pots, I can make a harness with those, but sadly the pots are slightly more expensive. Please get in touch for a LH taper loaded harness quote.
