4-Way Telecaster Wiring

Wiring diagram for the 4-way Telecaster setup which allows all three classic Telecaster switch positions plus an extra position which puts the neck and bridge pickups in series giving a fuller, fatter tone. This popular Telecaster setup uses a 4-way switch. For the 4 way Tele mod to work, you need to add a third ground wire from the back of the volume pot to the pickup casing.

Have a look at our guide on wiring a 4 way Telecaster which features a video on how to wire the switch and how to modify your neck pickup.
