Now with Two Options 

Vintage Plus for Telecaster®

The Obsidian® Vintage Plus wiring harness for Telecaster® adds a few tweaks in design, to improve the sound and play-ability with a more balanced volume control that retains highs at lower volumes, and a smoother tone control.


To make your tone crystal clear at lower volumes we also include an Obsidian® 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.

True Vintage 52' for Telecaster®

Based on the 52' Tele wiring, this is the true vintage 50s re-production wiring harness for your Telecaster®. Compared to the Obsidian® Vintage Plus set you will get more a interactive volume control (Warmer sounds at lower volumes), and a large range of treble roll off from the tone control.


The volume control on the late 52' Teles roll off treble with volume, so your sounds gets warmer as it gets quieter.  This can be the perfect solution for very easily rolling between  rhythm and lead.
