I wired this kit into my "Tele-style" along with the Golden Age Pickups. The sound is strong, very clean, and bang-on the real tone. I highly recommend this kit for anyone looking to do a proper Tele rebuild, you will not be disappointed with the quality. Incredibly happy I came to StewMac first.

My older MIM Tele was sounding scratchy and disgusting until... Premium Wiring Kit magic.

I really like this kit. Great price and much improved sound for my old tele.

Great Kit, Best switch and pots you can get!

I love CRL switches and CTS pots, you can't beat them, i got the vintage style kit, i really like working with the cloth push back wire, also the switchcraft jack is the best you can get. I priced the parts individually and where you save is not having to buy a 12 pack of capacitors, kit has all you need, plenty of wire too!!! i can't say nothing about the shielded cable, i don't like that stuff, it seemed to be good quality, i just don't like it!

Great quality

I would suggest a little clearer wiring diagram that includes the option of 50's neck dark/bright, bridge wiring or the modern neck, both, bridge wiring. Otherwise a great quality product. Some import bodies may need enlarging the control cavity to fit the switch.

The items I purchased were excellent quality and very easy to use. Being a first time user I did not know what to expect from Stewart Mac, but was pleasantly surprised when my purchase arrived within a week. Considering I live in Australia, this is an amazing effort. Well done guys. I won't hesitate to use again.
