Control Plate for Tele with Angled Slot

About This Item

Never fight with your Tele switch again!
With an angled pickup switch, you'll never struggle when flipping between positions again.

Telecasters® are amazing guitars, but there's one design flaw: the switch location. With the switch in the bridge position, it's tricky to change pickups on the fly, especially in the heat of a gig. This simple tweak solves this annoying problem forever.

Drop-in upgrade
This plated brass Tele control plate has the same footprint as the classic original, but the switch location is moved slightly forward and angled. Now it's easy to get your finger between the switch and the volume knob, no more fumbling or finger acrobatics.

This simple tweak makes it effortless to change pickups when you're playing—you don't even need to look. And you won't change the timeless look of your Tele!

The switch angle is designed to accommodate CRL 3-way and Oak Grigsby 4-way switches. Plate mounting screws included.

Dimensions:
Plate size: 6-3/8" x 1-1/4" (161.92mm x 31.75mm)
Thickness: 0.082" (2.08mm)
Plate mounting holes: 5-27/32" (148.34mm) on centers
Switch blade slot: 1-1/16" x 1/16" (26.99mm x 1.58mm)
Switch screw required: 6-32 x 5/8"
Switch mounting hole distance: 1-5/8" (41.27mm) on centers
Control pot hole diameter: 3/8" (9.52mm)

gooder control plate

much better than the original control plate but that's to be expected as fender uses the lest expensive parts. I'm going to slowly upgrade everything on my telecaster.

Tele angled slot plate

By

Verified Buyer


This design is great. The only minor issue is that the hole for the tone control was drilled to far back. I had to elongate the hole to give the tone pot and extra millimeter of travel closer to the volume pot so it would fit in the cavity.

Excellent plate for the Telecaster

By

Verified Buyer


If you want more range and easier switch changes this angled switch plate is perfect. It brings the telecaster to the 21st century and allows for versatility. I am switching all my tele plates to this one.

Very Nice

Good quality and came on time. But the control plate angle was not enough for my taste.

Looks Great, Makes More Sense Than Stock

By

Verified Buyer


I put one of these on a Squire Affinity Telecaster and it's worked out great. I put it so the pickup selector was toward the bottom of the guitar (i.e. away from where you strum). I went with the black one and it blends nicely with the black pickguard.

Very cool, but ...

By

Verified Buyer


Very nice piece, great plating, looks great. The only issue, the mounting holes are spaced about 1/16” too wide for a Telecaster standard. Certainly usable, but it does force filling the previous hole and redrilling a pilot hole, otherwise, the screw would be crooked.

Great add on for my Tele .

Verified Buyer


I have seen these in the past and thought I would try one on my next Tele project . The angled slot might take a little time getting used to , but I like the difference . It is very well made and the chrome finish looks very well done .

Excellent Control Plate

By

Verified Buyer


Excellent Control Plate, particularly if you do a reverse control layout. Nice and thick, nice plating. Works both ways of course, standard and reverse. But I wanted to mention also works w/ CRL 5way switch for your three pickup teles.

Good Design

By

Verified Buyer


The slight angle of the switch makes a big difference. Access to the switch when in bridge position is much more sure and quick. I purchased chrome and black plates. The plates are thick and the chrome plate has a good finish. The finish on the black plate is a bit cloudy/hazy in appearance. I actually thought there was protective film on it but there wasn't. Works but cosmetics are a bit disappointing.
