Premium Wiring Kit for Telecaster with 4-way Switch

About This Item

Complete kit for wiring a Tele with a fourth "fat tone" switch position.

This special kit features an Oak Grigsby 4-way switch: the extra position combines the bridge and neck pickups in series for a fatter tone. You get all the parts you'll need to wire your pickups into your Tele®, plus a diagram to show you how.

Premium components include cloth-covered push-back wire—the right stuff for Fender and vintage-style guitar circuitry. CTS pots give longer life and smooth, accurate response.

    The kit incudes:
  • Switchcraft output jack
  • 250K CTS solid-shaft control pots (2)
  • Orange Drop® capacitors: .047uF and .001uF
  • Oak Grigsby 4-way lever switch with mounting screws
  • Switch knobs: black barrel and top-hat
  • Non-shielded cloth-insulated push-back wire: 22 AWG white, 12" long
  • Non-shielded cloth-insulated push-back wire: 22 AWG black, 24" long
  • Braided-shield push-back wire: 22AWG, 12" long
  • Wiring diagram

Great product....easy to install.

(Customer's Reviews)

Put this on my American Tele with a set of Fender Noiseless. Works GREAT! But may need to modify the control plate if you're using an import or squire .


This in not a " drop in " mod

(Customer's Reviews)

Very disappointed to learn today that my guitar tech had to do the following mods in order to get this " supposed " Tele kit to fit into my Tele. Just recvd that news from him so I haven't yet had the opportunity to hear to sonic results of this " Premium " wiring Kit.
Here is what he had to do : The switch and pots didn't fit the control plate ( had to be enlarged ) and the knobs had to drilled out to fit the pot shafts.


4 way upgrade

this is a pretty cool mod, it'll give a forth position that sounds like a humbucker. easy to read instructions. just take your time soldering to avoid "shorts".
