• Emerson PRO CTS Solid Shaft (audio taper/logarithmic) potentiometers (Matched)

• Switchcraft 1/4" Mono Input Jack with pre-wired harness using twisted vintage push back wire enclosed with heat shrink tubing and also used on connections for strength

• Professionally soldered using vintage push-back wire.

**Switch Tip and Control Knobs Not Included**

What’s so special about this ’50s wiring? It affects your tone in three major ways:

1. The overall tone gets stronger, tighter, and more transparent. It’s difficult to describe, but you might say it’s more “in your face.”
2. The typical treble loss that occurs when rolling back the volume is much less than with standard wiring. Both the volume and tone controls become more responsive, and they react more smoothly without the usual hot spots. Another bonus: By simply rolling back your guitar volume a bit, you can clean up an overdriven amp without getting lost in the mix.
3. The tone and the volume controls interact with each other—something you might be familiar with from certain tweed-era Fender tube amps. When you change the volume, the tone changes a little bit as well, and vice-versa. This may be strange at first, but you only need a few minutes to get used to it.

The ’50s wiring exhibits much less treble loss that standard wiring because it follows a completely different curve, depending on the ratio of your pot. It works best with audio taper pots, preferably those with a 60:40 or 70:30 ratio. Smaller ratios like 80:20 or 90:10 limit this benefit and result in the typical “on/off” or “bright/dull” problem when using the controls.

Terms and conditions: If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase you can return it to us within 14 days and a full refund will be provided. Buyer assumes responsibility for return postage.
Postage on this item is at the standard rate, if you want your items sent by registered post please send me a message.
Potentiometers and other electronic soldered components must be returned in an un-used, un-soldered state and in the original packaging.

Hi,
I want to order this set for a Tele build, would you mind telling me the minimum depth of the control cavity needed for this?
Thanks a million!
Also wondering where in ballyboden you’re based? I’ve a load of things I’d like to get, and could go collect!

@adrian.ofarrell.16 Hi Adrian, the minimum depth required is 35mm. You can collect, I would prefer payment up front for the build though. I can't post contact details here on the threads but have a browse on the interwebs and you should find me.
Cheers

Hi can the grounding wires be added to the white connector - when you say 2 wires to solder do you mean on the switch only as in the 2 pick up hot wires (one from neck other from bridge)
East-West Guitars 2 months ago
@telecaster321 Hi, that's exactly it. I can also supply it with breakout wires on the switch and quick connectors so that no soldering is required.

OK thanks how much extra is postage to Kerry if I add a wilkinson bridge as well

@telecaster321: No worries. The postage on the harness should cover it for the bridge too if you want to tick the collect box on that item.
Cheers

Hi Can I order the 4 way harness for a tele we spoke about last week. Cheers

@patman99 Hi Pat, sure no problem. You'll find that on another listing as 'Telecaster Wiring Harness with 4-way Switch Mod'.

@gavquinn: Hi, no this isn't for the Esquire but I can make you up one though. It will be a bit higher in price due to the extra two capacitors and treble roll-off network for the bass sound. I hope this helps.
