Pre-Wired Guitar wiring harness | Bullet Mustang 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 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!
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!
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. If 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
- 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)
