Make Your Tele® Scream.
The ObsidianWire Custom 4-Way wiring harness for Telecaster® adds a tasty fourth switch position to make your Tele scream.
NOTE: 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.
The 4- Way Telecaster Switch Goes Like This
1: Neck & Bridge Pickup in Series (Humbucker Like Tone)
2: Neck Pickup Only
3: Neck & Bridge Pickup in Parallel (Traditional Tele)
4: Bridge Pickup Only
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.

Endless Customer Support
American and Mexican series Fender® Telecasters – Direct Fit
Japanese Fender & Squiers – You will need to purchase a genuine Fender USA control plate and new 1/4″ knobs to fit the higher grade electronics.
Other Guitars – We cannot guarantee that these will fit any other guitar.
Note: Aftermarket control plates will NOT fit. We recommend a genuine Fender control plate – Part Number: 099-2058-000
At ObsidianWire we use US spec 1/4″ Solid shaft controls. We recommend that you check your knobs are the correct size and replace them if necessary.
Three Wire Neck Pickup Mod
– 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.
