Telecaster® Thinline Wiring Harness
SSS Premium® prewired kits are subject to a 3-5 working day assembly time. Refer to our shipping policy.
Prewired harness to suit Telecaster Thinline models.
Electronically identical to our popular prewired Telecaster kit but the pots are closer together and designed to fit into Thinline pickguards, rather than a standard Tele control plate.
- SSS Premium® CTS pots (8% tolerance)
- CRL USA 3-way spring action switch (or 4 way Oak Grigsby switch)
- Optional treble bleed circuit on volume control
- Pre-wired Switchcraft USA 1/4'' jack
- SSS Premium® PIO capacitor (0.047uF with 250k pots option/0.022uF with 500k pots option)
- Vintage tinned-copper "buss" ground wire
- Gavitt® USA cloth wire
- Easy to follow Telecaster® wiring diagram to attach your pickups
If you select 250k pots we will use 0.047uF capacitor (and 0.022uF with 500k pots).
SSS Premium® Pots
Featuring SSS Premium® CTS pots, our prewired Tele® Thinline kit is a great upgrade to stock electronics in any guitar, be it partscaster or custom shop. SSS Premium® CTS pots have a custom audio taper giving you a smoother and more rounded control sweep - no drop offs or choking as you dial the volume back. SSS Premium CTS pots are supplied to within a resistance tolerance of 8%.
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® Thinline wiring harness will fit into genuine Fender® USA/MIM pickguards. If installing into an imported model/DIY guitar kit you will need to ensure the holes on the pickguard will take CTS pots (approx. 10mm). 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).
