Golden Age Pre-wired Harness for Telecaster

About This Item

Assembled and soldered in the USA using top components like CRL or Oak Grigsby switches and CTS pots for the best sound. Ready to drop into your guitar!

    Worth every penny!
  • Premium hand-wired for drop-in retrofit
  • Upgrade your old wiring
  • Save work and save time on new builds

Soldered in our Athens, Ohio shop
We professionally hand-soldered these harnesses using the best brand-name components for long life and great sound: 3-way CRL or 4-way Oak Grigsby lever switch, CTS pots, Orange Drop® caps, Switchcraft™ output jack and cloth push-back wire. Bonus: Both black barrel and top-hat switch knobs are included!

Tested and 100% Guaranteed
Each Golden Age harness comes to you mounted on a reusable plywood template, which is a tool in itself: save it for future wiring jobs. The template holds the components correctly so the finished harness fits neatly into the guitar's wiring cavity. You simply solder your pickup lead wires to the harness.

Perfect solution to quiet the guitar

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I purchased a Fender AVRI 52 Tele. Unfortunately after I purchased it, it started to almost immediately make a loud ground hum and only by touching the bridge or control plate could you quiet it. I tried finding the problem. I even resoldered every joint in the guitar but no luck. I decided to try one of these Golden Age pre-wired harness. First I ordered it. I received it quickly in 2 days. Dropping it in was easy. Just had to solder up the pickup wiring to the harness. It is dead quiet now, or at least as much as any guitar with a single coil pickups. I highly recommend this to make your guitar operate like new and be quiet. I'll probably be ordering one for my Strat too in the near future. Thanks Stewart-MacDonald for offering these pre-wired kits! Ed Reader - Manchester, TN

Beautiful wiring and soldering

i ordered this for a Tele I built with a P90 in the neck position. After a little tech help from Stew Mac it plays and sound great. I was having trouble with a lot of noise, The Tech had me make some mods to the P90 and it's very quite now. I ordered this partially to see how the Pro's do it and I was really impressed with their work.

Loved it. This was purchased to replace a Fender S1 system on a Fender American Deluxe Telecaster. Along with the 3-Way Switch, Volume and Tone pots the pickups were replaced with Rio Grande Vintagre Tele Tall Boys. What an awesome difference it made in the Tele.

I put the wiring harness into a Squire Telecaster and it came alive. So glad I did it. Plus installation was super easy. A great way to turn a entry level guitar into a excellent sounding guitar.

Speed Ease Install

When I got my pre-wire kits for My Squire Affinity Tele. Install was a snap! I had my Tele up an playing in minutes. The only not so good thing I can say is that I should have have also purchased replacement dome knobs. Outside of that, with Aftermaket pickups, My Tele sounds like a '52 on steroids. Great Products
