SSS Premium® Pots
Featuring SSS Premium® CTS pots, our Telecaster® wiring harness is a premium upgrade to stock electronics in modern guitars. SSS Premium® CTS pots have a custom audio taper giving you a smoother and more rounded control sweep - no sudden drop offs or choking as you roll the volume back. SSS Premium® CTS pots are supplied to within a resistance tolerance of 8%.
CRL switches are renowned for their high quality and are the switch of choice for high end guitars and guitar techs worldwide. The spring action offers incredibly high and consistent performance over a long period of time.
Treble Bleed Mod
One frustration with the Telecaster® wiring setup is the treble loss as volume is rolled back. Commonly when the volume knob is turned to below 7-8, the tone starts to get muddy. This Telecaster® harness features a treble bleed circuit on the volume control which counteracts this and retains the high end frequencies at lower volume levels.
SSS Premium® PIO Capacitor
Constructed in the USA these paper in oil capacitors are made using using vintage spec aluminium foil and Kraft paper, impregnated with castor oil and hand soldered before being hermetically sealed in their cans. All measured to a capacitance tolerance of +/- 5%.
Will this fit my guitar?
Our Telecaster® Wiring harness is wired into genuine Fender® USA/MIM control plates. If installing into an imported model/DIY guitar kit you will need to ensure the holes on the control plate will take CTS pots (approx. M10). You may also be required to purchase new control knobs. The CTS pots in this prewired Tele® kit are solid shaft and will require imperial sized knobs (screw fit).
