Pre-Wired Guitar wiring harness | 2 Pickup Dual Concentric La Cabronita kit | 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!
If you have a 2 pickup cabronita and would like a little more tonal control over the standard 1 volume configuration, but don't want to drill more holes in the body, then this is a great alternative. Featuring a quality CTS 500k/500k stacked concentric audio taper pot, which allows you to have a volume and tone control in one neat position alongside the normal 3 way toggle switch. I tested this on a Cabronita and the results were great, offering that bit more adjustability of the tone on the guitar whilst still being simple to use and intuitive.
I wire this so that the 'upper' smaller part of the control knob is the tone control, and the larger 'lower' part of the control knob is for the volume knob. I opted for this as I feel it is much easier to do pinky volume swells/adjustments with the more accessible, larger control knob.
You can choose this harness as it comes, or with a selection of toggle switch tips and the matching stacked control knob set too.
I have intended for my wiring harnesses to be as simple as possible to install to your Telecaster, 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 pot, is a CTS branded pot which features 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/control plate to accommodate for these imperial measurement pots.
For reference, the CTS pot I use in this harness have a mounting shaft diameter of 9.52mm. The mounting thread depth is only 6mm, this did comfortably fit the USA La Cabronita I tested this harness model on fine, but it is worth checking the guitar's top thickness to ensure the mounting thread length will fit through the top and secure via the mounting nut comfortably.
Dual concentric pots also require a special control knob to operate the tiered/stacked pots. I offer this harness with the option of a new control knob to match the pot, or without if you happen to already have one.
If you do require a US spec control plate or 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 pot to toggle switch - 55mm
Centre of toggle switch to jack socket - 85mm
These measurements for my templates were taken from a USA Fender Cabronita.
