Replacement parts for a Tele

By

Verified Buyer


I got these parts for a Telecaster body I picked up at a good deal. It is a 2011 MIM body. The pots are original and are CTS so I did not replace them as they work A-OK...ditto on the cap...BUT the original input jack was causing hum/havoc. I replaced it with the Switchcraft jack that Stew-Mac provided and problem solved. I now have spare parts for my other Tele if that one has electronic issues. Stew-Mac ROCKS !

Great Upgrade on Classic Vibe Tele

By

Verified Buyer


I bought to see if it would make a difference on the tone of my CV Butterscotch Tele. I love playing that guitar and since I bought it used figured a little upgrade might help. And it helped big time.

Although I had never done any soldering it took a bit and maybe not the prettiest but it all worked perfectly. No comparison in quality with the cheap innards on the CV versus the premium kit - you can see, feel and really hear the difference. I didn't change pickups so all improvement in tone is a result of better switches, etc.

Great improvement for minimal dollars.

Great improvement

Today I swapped out the cheap components in my Tele kit with this package. I'm very pleased with the results. Huge sound improvement and the high quality components feel great and function well. The Stew Mac wiring diagram was easy to follow. A fun project with bug results! highly recommended.

Good service, good parts. The only thing that would have made it better is if they had sent someone along to install the things.

My favorite place for all parts musical.

Quality pots, switches and caps. Wiring was a little light weight for my taste, but that’s just me.

Pretty simple kit

Does not come with heat shrink tubing. Make sure you take a look at both the diameter of the pots in this kit, and the holes in your guitar, as you may need metric sized pots. The kit comes with a little extra length in the wires so if you use them sparingly you should have enough for a backup. A diagram is included though it may be easier to follow a video tutorial should you ever have difficulty. All in all has all you need, just double check dimensions and diameters first

Radically more tone but watch the switch

By

Verified Buyer


This kit delivers much more low and mid frequencies than my original MIJ Tele electronics. I had to reconfigure my whole amp and pedals and even micro-adjusted the pickups again but it was worth it. I did have a problem with the switch not being exactly as it was in the diagram. It turns out some of the CTS switches they use have slightly different lug layouts but if you call or email them, they'll send you a new diagram which is correct.

Installed the premium wiring kit along with new Seymour Duncan pickups. Premium components, easy installation, schematic drawing was simple to follow. Great and inexpensive upgrade.
