Right on time!

This kit came along just in time for a second-hand DIY kit that had serious electronic issues; 3-way import switch felt too soft, faulty wiring and the output jack sleeve rolled like a volume pot so they were quickly taken out. The CRL 3-way switch is as firm as a switch should feel, the Switchcraft jack was also firm and the wiring was needed badly fresh air but the Alpha pots and capacitors were preserved for another project as the original 250K Alphas and .047 green capacitor function perfectly...thanks Stewmac!

Perfect Upgrade for Telecaster

By


Put this in my G&L ASAT Classic Telecaster and it is awesome to have the gritty tone option of going to the humbucker position. I use it a lot. Turned my Tele into a Super-Tele with a more gritty blues tone!

Tele wiring kit!

Good inexpensive way to get this Tele project up and running and test pick ups. The basic Stew-Mac wiring kits are reasonable quality. Have used them before with good results.
Easy up grade to caps later if even required.

Great Switch Kit...

By

Verified Buyer


The switch and controls needed to be replaced so I purchased this kit. All is going together fine. The three way switches wire lugs are opposite to what the instructions show, but it's just a simple issue to wire it the other way around!

Great parts but.....

By

Verified Buyer


This is for a parts-caster project that started with an empty Tele body. As I said, great parts. The pots are smooth and quiet, the switch is top notch and the output jack is solid. However, I think you could do a little better than 26AWG shielded cable. When I tried to strip the inner conductor the entire wire pulled out of the braided shield! I upgraded to a 26 AWG shielded instrument cable and it was much easier to work with. The Tele sounds and plays great with no hum. With such great parts, why cheap out on the wiring?

Telecaster pots

By

Verified Buyer


I had a friend put a set of your basic pots and wiring for a telecaster (volume,tone) along with the wiring into a generic telecaster copy guitar.He used the included grownd wire which was bigger than the origina.Without changing the original pickups(which are generic, usual tele pickups). This guitar sounds like it never did before. The pickups are closer in balance and the tone is great If there was a testament to using good pots this was it. Unbelievable. Thanks.

Surprised

By

Verified Buyer


After completing the wiring and installation in a telecaster build, I experienced some heavy static discharge and "pops" when I touched the bridge, strings, etc. There was some slight pickup noise - but not unexpected nor bad. I checked grounds and other connections along with amp connection with a known good guitar, and didn't see the problem with other guitar. I've pulled the wiring package from the guitar, and ordered a prewired unit from another vendor. Was disappointed..... as I've used other Stewmac packages and components with no issues. I do like getting my parts from them.

Great Quality, Shy on Quantity

By

Verified Buyer


Don,t get me wrong the quality of the pots, switch, and jack is great. The kit comes with all good parts. However the wire... only enough to complete about half the job. I have tried several times to use the wire scarcely and just can not complete a wiring job with the only wire supplied. You will probably half to get more wire.
