CUSTOM 4-WAY FOR TELE® WIRING HARNESS
MAKE YOUR TELECASTER SCREAM
The ObsidianWire Custom 4-Way wiring harness for Telecaster® adds a tasty fourth switch position to make your Tele scream.
Requires Three Wire – Neck Pickup Mod * See Below
Kick your Tele into the fourth position and your old work horse becomes a beast.
The neck and bridge pickups work in series to provide a more powerful humbucker like tone. You can use this position for stronger rhythm and screaming leads.
Your Telecaster will retain all of the traditional switch positions, and the familiar master tone and volume controls.
4-WAY TELE® SWITCH POSITIONS:
1: Neck & Bridge in Series (Humbucking)
3: Neck & Bridge in Parallel (Traditional Tele)
We have a small team of people that love crafting Pro-Wired Electronics and we take pride in producing the absolute best. We use custom specified parts, perfected techniques, and hand test to ensure that your harness will be an upgrade for your guitar, from factory model to custom shop.
CRYSTAL CLEAR TONE
To make your tone crystal clear at lower volumes we also include an ObsidianWire Custom Spec Treble Bleed Mod. This prevents tone ‘muddiness’ at low volumes by allowing high frequencies to pass along a separate path to your amp, rather than being stopped short by the increasing resistance at the volume control.

To properly ground your neck pickup you will need to add an additional wire to it. This is an easy mod & we provide the instructions and wire to do the job but it does require a solder joint. Please allow for this when buying this upgrade.
