Pre-Wired Guitar wiring harness | Bullet Mustang kit | Right Handed

£62.49

Order times
I usually make harnesses to order, due to the variety of spec options that could be chosen across the whole range. The current turnaround time for a harness orders is around 5-7 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!

Description
It is widely known that the Squier Bullet Mustang offers a superb low budget modding platform, and there is a huge community for modifying and improving on these cool offset guitars. This is my high spec harness offering for the Bullet Mustang!
It is wired 50's style, so more like vintage Gibsons really, which has been chosen because it helps with retaining some of the treble frequency roll off on the volume as well as having nice intuitive volume/tone control adjustment.
From the factory, despite being supplied with two humbucker pickups, the original wiring features 250k pots. So depending on your plans for the modification, I have decided to offer these with the choice of 250k pots or 500k pots. Most people seem to change pickups anyway on these, so whether you're going for something totally different or not, these two pot spec choices should have you covered. But if for any reason you need something different, just drop me a message and we can see what we can do.
As a general rule single coils are paired with 250k pots, humbuckers and P90s are paired with 500k pots. I hope this helps :)
If you have any questions about specs, feel free to drop me a message, happy to help where possible!

Installing
I have intended for my wiring harnesses to be as simple as possible to install to your Bullet Mustang 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. You will need to drill out the holes in the control plate and pickguard when fitting this harness 
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. The Switchcraft toggle switch requires a 12mm mounting hole.
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.

Rough measurements between components that the harness is made to suit - 
Switch to volume - 13.5cm (some give in wire length allowed for due to the way the body wire channeling is routed.
Volume to tone - 5cm
Tone to jack - 4cm

Specs
- CTS '450' Series +/-10% Tolerance short shaft, Split shaft pots - 250k or 500k (Split shaft pots used as standard on this harness)

- .022uF 'Yellow Mustard' type tone capacitor  (If you'd prefer a different value capacitor, do please get in touch and I'd be more than happy to help, but as standard all of my kits come with .022uF value)
- Gavitt USA made cloth covered 22AWG wire
- 20AWG Tinned copper ground
- Swictchraft 3 way right angle toggle switch
- Pure Tone multi contact jack socket
- Soldered using R-Tech Premium Lead-Free (Sn95.5Ag3.9Cu0.6) 22swg Solder wire 
RoHS Compliant

Please note - wiring kit does not include new control knobs/switch tip/control plates etc but does include the pot/jack mounting nuts and washers and switch mounting nut. 

Why these spec parts over others available?
Simply put, component choice has been one of the most important parts of my product development. I have worked on guitars for many years, and built these kits professionally since 2015, and as a result have been able to see and experience working on the majority of components available on the market. In my findings, A/B testing and more, I have found the components I decided on for my Signature Series to be the most reliable, best tolerance and great functioning parts to use to help customers get the most out of their instruments. I use CTS '450' series premium spec pots as they have a tight tolerance, and will consistently provide me with accurate value, as well as very solid build quality. I use trusty 'Mustard' style polyester film 'tone' capacitors as in my opinion they simply can't be beat for great value, solid construction, solid lead-outs, super tight tolerances and reliable tone/function. I would personally much rather use a trusty Mustard for example over something like a paper in oil, as from experience that are so much more reliable to use. This is from carrying out a lot of A/B testing, both tonally, as well as armed with the multi-meter for testing values and actual tolerances, as well as handling them to test construction quality for long lasting reliability in use. I use the brilliant 'Pure Tone' Multi Contact Jack sockets as they are incredibly reliable, due to their additional contact points for both tip and sleeve. I use CRL, Oak and Switchcraft brand switches across the range as these are built very well, with care will last for many years to come and have long since provided me with reliable use professionally. All kits are wired up with quality USA made Gavitt wire, it's great to work with, super consistent gauge and provides me with a very reliable quality item for my kits. I totally understand that with anything guitar, it is subjective, but I have, with an open mind, thoroughly tested a broad variety of components over the years and these have all become the items I trust to use every day. 

Harness FAQ's

I've been proudly making, developing and installing my pre-wired guitar harnesses since the beginning of the Home of Tone back in 2015 (time flies when you're having fun right!). Although I feel I do my best in covering as much information as possible across the various product listings, fitting guides, wiring diagrams and more, I thought it might be helpful to put together an FAQ's page that covers some of the general additional questions I get asked. You can view these Harness FAQ's HERE

'Ground Bug' deal!

Looking forward to installing your new wiring, but a little worried about making the ground connections to the pot casings? First time soldering and hear the horror stories of frying pots, or just simply want to neaten up your installs? Then the awesome 'Ground Bug' will help with any of these concerns, beginner or pro modders alike. The Ground Bug is a pot washer that fits between the pot casing and the pickguard/body and has a number of lugs (much like with the main signal connections on the pot for example) to which you can very easily solder your ground wire connections too. Completely removing the worry and risk of soldering a pot casing, something I know many guitarists complain about having to learn to do. 
I have been stocking Ground Bugs for a while, and they really are the perfect match for a pre-wired harness as they further help you with your installs. So I have set up a 10% off Ground Bug deals when purchased with a Home of Tone Signature Series pre-wired harness. This is an automatic discount code, so all you need to have is a Signature Series kit, and a Ground bug in your cart, and the discount will automatically be applied to the bug for you! Click HERE to view the Ground Bug listing

Do you make custom harnesses?

I'm afraid I do not offer a custom harness service. Only kits developed, tested and listed on my website are the available kits. So no custom schematics etc. If you happen to be local to my office, then I do carry out custom work in house, but in regards to shipped out pre-wired harnesses I do not offer custom kits. I am however happy to use different pot values or cap values within reason if you have a specific requirement that differs to the specs listed above. If this is relevant to yourself then please get in touch to discuss further to ensure the request is possible.
