Pre-Wired Guitar wiring harness | Slanted plate 3-way Telecaster 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 5 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!
I recently received a batch of Goldo slanted switch control plates which are a great option for players that may find the straight regular blade switch awkward when trying to use the volume pot. So to suit this alternative control plate, I am now also offering a slanted switch Tele harness with the slightly altered measurements in mind.
Featuring my usual high quality specs from the Tele kit, but simply with altered measurements which may be really helpful for those looking to install one of my harnesses along with the Goldo slanted switch plate.
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 pots, are CTS branded pots which are 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 control plate to accommodate for these imperial measurement pots. Or alternatively, purchase a new control plate that is already suited to the US spec components.
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 or solid shaft diameters. If you're choosing traditional 250k pots, I supply the kit with traditional solid shaft pots which are 6.35mm diameter. But if you're choosing 500k pots, then those are a split shaft pot and measure 5.95mm (adjustable) with 24 splines.
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 slanted Switch to volume pot - 45mm
Centre of volume pot to centre of tone pot - 47.5mm
With or without Treble Bleed?
First up, what does it do? A Treble Bleed kit takes the 'high' treble tone frequencies out of the circuit at the volume pot, and puts them back in the circuit as the signal leaves the volume pot. This means the treble frequencies are prevented from naturally bleeding out of the circuit as your turn your volume pot down. The result is a smoothed out treble and a more uniform tone from 1 to 10. Reducing the treble drop out as the volume pot rolls off. Some guitar players wouldn't be without a treble bleed, and many have never used one on their guitars. Truth is, it is very much personal preference. If you like the idea of retaining treble as you roll your volume pot down, then a treble bleed is for you!
