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.

good kit with fine quality parts - no great benefit from 4way switch

By

Verified Buyer


bought the 4way-version, it is a good kit, but to my ears the sound of the pickups in serial is not very different to that coming out of the normal parallel version. my guitar tech like me could not hear a big difference. For the 4way switch you have to to disconnect the neck pickup cover and to ground the cover with a new cable. Too much work for only subtle nuances in sound. For the next build I will take the three way switch.

WOW..... If you want the vintage tele sound you have to get this ! (along with the pickups)

Put this in my Refinished Squire tele , Along with the Golden age antiquities pickups.
The sound and tonalities can not touch any high priced tele i have heard or played.
If you can spare the few extra bucks for these and the time (mine were on back order)
They will bring your tele up to what the originals sounded like !!! If i could give 10 stars i would have!

Every time I order anything from StewMac I am impressed by the following....
Accurate as ordered
Very quick shipping
Excellent service from order to follow up
Quality products
My latest order included a prewired wiring harness which arrived as ordered, well packaged for shipping, and was exactly what it was advertised to be. If I wasn't already a StewMac regular customer, I would become one.

Perfect solution to quiet the guitar

By

Verified Buyer


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.

Golden Age Pre-wired Harness for Telecaste

By

Verified Buyer


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.
