 Super Easy Install

 

All ObsidianWire Pro-Wired Electronics are super easy to install, and allow for solder-less pickup changes with ObsidianWire Plug, Play & Enjoy connectors.

 

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.

Compatibility

 

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.

Great upgrade

The wiring harness is great! My Fender Player Series Tele made installation difficult. The switch sot was too short, as were the pickup wires (so I had to solder anyway!). Neither issue was Obsidian’s fault, but just letting people know that this isn’t plug and play for every guitar.

AMAZING BUT NEEDED TO DO SOME TINKERING. Fender Telecaster Thinline 69

First and foremost obsidianwire is a great company, quick with responses and extremely helpful. I originally ordered the part not realizing my telecaster A thinline 69 reissue could actually not take the mod. I had realIzed my mistake and emailed OW they responded quickly and said I should try a dry run. If it didn’t work I can send it back and get a refund. Determined with the help of my friend we had to do some tinkering and extra soldering to make it fit into my tele. Took about two days due to time constraints and troubleshooting But since then it’s a different beast even with the stock pick ups I have a crunch that was never there before. My volume and tone control (with the treble bleed) is what I’ve always wanted out of my sound. It definitely is a little noisy but once I start play it quiets down. Overall I would suggest anyone to purchase Obsidian Wire for their Teles but if you have thinline it can be done but modifications will be needed to be done in order to make it work.! The effort is worth it and I hope in the future they will make parts for the different Teles out there. Thank You Obsidian Wire!
