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

  • Non-shielded cloth-insulated push-back wire: 22 AWG black, 24" long

Surprised

By

Verified Buyer


The pots and capacitors were much bigger than I anticipated. The stock mini parts in my guitar looked very different, comparatively. This was a positive in my view. The pots and switch have a reassuring feel to them. The fourth position that the switch offered my G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy Semi-hollow was a bit woolly and warm for my uses, but this is subjective to my guitar. I am pleased with both service and quality of products.

Full disclosure: I had a professional install the parts. A man with a hook for a hand could solder better than I can.

Sounds great, easy installation

By

Verified Buyer


This was my first time replacing guitar electronics, and the kit was great! Some soldering experience is absolutely required, but overall it wasn't horrible. Just triple-check everything! As for the "4th position," it sounds awesome...hard to describe, but I find it sounds a bit different than the typical middle position and a humbucker. More options is more better, right? Totally worth it.

Very happy with this wiring kit

By

Verified Buyer


I am a very picky Tele player playing mostly clean country leads.
After purchasing a new USA 60s original Tele and finding the Volume and Tone controls were muddy when turned down even a little bit. I decided to try this. I know how to solder but was a bit over my head with this. When it was finished and working the Vol. and Tone function is now fantastic.
Very happy with this product and the 4 way switching.

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!

4 way tele wiring

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.

By

Verified Buyer


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

By

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.!
