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

This kit truly brought my Tele alive! The delivery to Finland was very quick despite it was a couple of days in the Finnish customs waiting for me to pay the tax.

Inside there was “thanks” written in Finnish, a small gesture which made my day! Cheers!

Best wiring kit for Tele

I bought this wiring Kit for my Telecaster copy. After I finished the assembly, I'm really surprised for this amazing sound of my guitar.
Thanks a lot from good ol' Germany!

4 way tele wiring

By

Verified Buyer


Fitting was straightforward enough - quick search for a suitable YouTube video to back up the circuit diagram and I was able to connect it all up quite easily.
My original order got lost in the mail somewhere between the US and Australia, but once I contacted StewMac a replacement was sent out straight away and arrived in about a week - fantastic customer service. Thank you :-)
As for the sound - I don't know what pots were in originally, but with the CTS pots my guitar sounds HUGE!!! Love it. Absolutely love it :-D

Bonus Tonal Option

By

Verified Buyer


Output jack farted out on my CV Tele, decided to upgrade the wiring, pots, etc along the way when replacing the electro socket. I shopped around online and found a few "pre wired" kits but they were almost triple the price, chose this 4-way from StewMac. Very easy to follow directions, a little soldering and results are vastly improved clarity from the pickups plus another tonal option in the 4th position.

Excellent upgrade.

The only obstacle for me was, my CIJ Fender Tele knobs were too small for the shafts. I would recommend this upgrade to any do it yourself, enthusiasts. I used an SD quarter pounder and hot rails, I'm happy with the result even with my ham-fisted soldering skills.

Great Product - New Tones

I decided to install a four-way switch on my Telecaster and, WOW, it's awesome. The fourth position absolutely rocks.

This is the first major modification that I've made to a guitar and I found the wiring instructions accurate and easy to follow. Great kit.!

Nice kits with quality components. Vintage telecasters have 3 way switch’s so this kit has additional voicing.

Brought back my Tele!

I had converted a Mexican Tele into an Esquire a few years ago and did a poor job on the wiring/soldering. Having some more experience (and patience) now I went ahead and bought this premium wiring kit and couldn't be happier. The guitar has the extra beefy 4th option now, but also restored that classic Tele sound I was missing. There was certainly some trial and error, but between the instructions included and some Googling I was able to figure it out and it now has the least amount of noise from any of my guitars.

Phat!

I got this for a 2005 MIM standard Tele...I was NOT disappointed! The control plate still fit the 4-way switch and I even had room to install a killswitch between the volume and tone. The response from both pots is worlds smoother than stock, especially with the orange drops and tone bleed. There is a noticeable volume increase with the series combination. I opted to not use the braided or cloth wires out of frustration...however, my 22 AWG stranded wire worked just fine and my guitar is as silent as it has ever been. I can't stop playing now!

First Guitar mod

I put this in a Greg Bennett tele copy (Formula) It is a little bigger than the original hardware so a router would have came in handy, other than having to drill bigger holes for the pots it was fairly easy to install however the diagram was a little confusing as to whether the wiring went with the bottom of the plate facing me or right side up as it would sit in the cavity......
