Description

The ObsidianWire Traditional Vintage harness for Telecaster preserves the legacy of the original work horse, with a few tweaks in quality and design to improve the sound and play-ability.

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

The Traditional Vintage harness follows the same tried and true formula of the original telecaster with a three way switch, master volume, and master tone control plus the addition of premium selected and hand matched components for greater clarity and control over your 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.

We build ObsidianWire Pro-Wired Electronics using the world’s best craftsmanship and components:

  • 2 x ObsidianWire Custom Select Pots (Crafted by CTS) 250k or 500k (+/-6%) (Matched to +/-2%) SOLID SHAFT
  • 1 x Genuine Oak Grigsby 3-Way Switch
  • 1 x Genuine Switchcraft J11 Mono Output jack
  • 1 x ObsidianWire Custom Select 150 Series Polyester Film Capacitor (0.047 or 0.022uf) (Hand Tested to +/-10%)
  • 1 x ObsidianWire Premium Selected Volume Mod / Treble Bleed - Improved Volume Taper & Clarity
  • 1 x Pre Printed & Easy to Follow Wiring Diagram
  • 1 x Endless Customer Support

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.

What an upgrade

Like other folks who have posted on this blog, I wanted to change the pick ups and also the controls for my telecaster but really did not want to get into the soldering thing. Installation is straightforward and quite simple. My install also included adding vintage noiseless pickups from Fender. Big thanks to the folks at obsidian wire. Great work Matt!
