    Worth every penny!
  • Premium hand-wired for drop-in retrofit

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.

Double check sizing

I purchased this for a Squire Tele. It did not fit the face plate or knobs. The switch came with larger screws that were set a hair or two farther apart. It was easy enough to enlarge the switch and pod holes so everything fit. I did have to order two new knobs because, of course, the old ones did not fit the 1/4 inch pod shaft. The good news is they look nicer than the old ones.

I just added a new set of Fender noiseless pickups to me MIM fender telecaster so while I was working on it I decided to upgrade all of the electronics and at first I was looking at all stand alone components and wire it up myself after all I can solder with the best of them. then I saw the Golden age Pre-Wired Harness with all the high grade parts I was wanting. Now my $600 Tele sounds like a $2000 + custom shop model.

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.
