Pre-Wired Guitar wiring harness | Jaguar kit | Right Handed

£37.92

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
The Jaguar, released in 1962 and packed with innovative features remains an incredibly special guitar that has provided players with a creative tool ever since. 
Although many guitarists pigeon hole it along with the Jazzmaster due to the unique offset shape, vibrato system and quirky controls, they are quite different beasts and I do think it's pickups and wiring circuit that play a big part in that.
Although it does share a rhythm circuit design similar to that of the older Jazzmaster sibling, where it's only the neck pickup activated and a volume and tone pot system controlled via side mounted 'roller' pots. The lead circuit however differs quite a bit, with on/off switches for each pickup (not dissimilar to the Mustang), as well as an extra 'high-pass filter' switch, or 'strangle' switch as it's often called. This particular harness is a recreation of the traditional schematic, meant for direct replacement, or for a vintage spec build. I have spec'd it with the same component values as the originals would have had to be true to traditions and I hope this provides Home of Tone customers with a solid replacement, upgrade or project wiring kit to help with their traditional Jaguars. My kit does come with a treble bleed mod as standard, I personally feel this spec helps with volume pot response through the sweep. If you wouldn't like the treble bleed fitted though, just let me know and I can certainly make it without one for you.

Due to the body routing, and more importantly, wire channels found in traditional Jaguar bodies, I cannot provide this as a complete drop in harness, I instead have to supply it in three sections. As a result, I have decided to offer those individually, if for example you only need to replace one section for repair etc. Or you can purchase all three sections as a complete kit, which would then have the final connections made in situ upon install. 

Installing
I have intended for my wiring harnesses to be as simple as possible to install to your Jaguar 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.
For reference, the CTS pots I use in this harness have a shaft diameter of 9.52mm, which most control plates are drilled to 10mm to accommodate this measurement. 

You may also require new control knobs to fit the CTS pot diameters.
I offer an option of either split shaft pots, or with solid shaft pots for this harness depending on the style of control knobs you intend to use. The Solid shaft pots have a measurement of 6.35mm and the split shaft have a measurement of 5.95mm(adjustable) 24 spline.
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.

Due to how the Jaguar body is routed, this harness comes supplied in three sections, the upper Rhythm circuit section, and the lower switch section, and the lead circuit pots section. The wires need feeding through the bodies wire channel then soldering the final connections when in situ. This is shown in the wiring diagram and wires are clearly marked by their colour coding to help further with this.

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.
