Description

The ObsidianWire Custom 4-Way harness for Telecaster® gives you all the fun of the traditional vintage Tele®, whilst adding a tasty fourth switch position to make it scream.

Best of all, these are super easy to install, and allow for unlimited solder-less pickup changes with ObsidianWire Plug, Play and Enjoy connectors.

(Requires Three Wire - Neck Pickup Mod * See Notes Below)

The Custom 4-way harness follows a tried and true formula, giving your Tele the familiar master tone, master volume and three positions that we all know and love. Plus a little extra.

Kick your Tele into the new fourth position and your old work horse becomes a beast with the neck and bridge pickups working in series to provide a more powerful humbucker like tone. You can use this position for stronger rhythm and screaming leads.

Custom 4-Way for Tele Positions:

    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

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.

COMPATIBILITY

ObsidianWire Pro-Wired Electronics for Telecaster, are designed to be a direct fit for American and Mexican series Fender® Telecasters. They can also be used to upgrade Japanese Fender & Squier guitars with some adjustments. In the least, you will need a new genuine Fender USA control plate and new 1/4" knobs to fit the higher grade electronics. We cannot guarantee that these will fit any other guitar.

Note: aftermarket control plates do not have the correct Fender spec spacing and as such will not fit our electronics. We recommend a genuine Fender 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.

4-way switch for Tele

Unbelievable product! Best investment for guitar/bass players looking to replace Pickups. It's as easy as changing strings on your guitar. I love not having to solder anything and make a mess. You don't have to be a luthier to install this product. Thank you Obsidian! I will be buying the Strat version next.

Supercharged my Tele

I am not very handy about working on guitars but I did the installation and it made my tele a monster. Can't say enough good about this upgrade.
