6 Way Telecaster® Wiring Harness
SSS Premium® prewired kits are subject to a 3-5 working day assembly time. Refer to our shipping policy.
Our 6 way Telecaster harness adds an extra 3 switching positions to the standard 3 way wiring we all know and love. Featuring the incredibly discreet Free-Way 3B3-01 blade switch, the 6 way Tele® harness enables series, parallel and out of phase switching, literally reaching each possible combination from a 2 single coil pickup guitar.
The Free-Way 3B3 switch is nice and discreet and sits in a standard Tele® control plate. Rather than faffing around with push pull pots or mini toggle switches, all of the switching is, surprisingly, done via the switch.
Containing two banks of 3 switch positions (lower bank and upper bank) the 6 way Telecaster harness maintains the classic switch positions we are all familiar with. Flicking the switch into the upper bank, enables series/parallel switching, neck and bridge pickup combinations and all three pickups on simultaneously.
6 Way Tele® Harness Features:
- Freeway 3B3-01 blade switch
- 250k SSS Premium® CTS pots (8% tolerance)
- Prewired Switchcraft® 1/4'' jack socket
- 0.047uF SSS Premium® PIO capacitor

SSS Premium® CTS Pots
Featuring SSS Premium® CTS pots, our prewired kits are the ultimate upgrade to stock electronics in modern guitars. SSS Premium® pots have a custom audio taper as opposed to the modern 10% audio taper, giving you a smoother and more rounded control sweep.
Will this fit my guitar?
The 6 way Tele® wiring harness will fit most USA/Mexican made Fender Telecaster® models with no modification required. If fitting into import models/copies/partscasters, you may be required to ream or drill the pot holes to 3/8'' diameter to take the larger CTS pot shafts. A cavity depth of 34mm is required for the switch. This kit requires a metric fitting switch tip.
*PLEASE NOTE - this kit requires standard/traditional single coil pickups and a seperate ground wire for the neck pickup cover*
