Important Compatibility Information for Telecaster Kits


Traditional vs Reverse Mounting

These kits are built in the standard layout as default.  However, if you'd like reverse layout - Volume towards the headstock, Switch towards the bridge with the tone in the middle - that's absolutely fine.  Either leave a note in the "Order Special Instructions" dropdown box prior to checkout, or reply to your order confirmation shortly after receiving it.

 

Mounting Hole Spacing - 2.5" On Center

Each of my Telecaster wiring kits are built with 2.5" spaced (center-to-center) mounting holes for the volume and tone control.  If your control plate has different spacing please let me know what that measurement is and I'll be happy to accommodate. Again, either leave a note in the "Order Special Instructions" dropdown box prior to checkout, or reply to your order confirmation shortly after receiving it.

 

Mounting Hole Size - 3/8"

All potentiometers that I use have a US Spec 3/8" threaded bushing.  If your control plate does not have properly sized mounting holes to accept these potentiometers you can either enlarge them by drilling them out - or - purchase a Kluson Vintage Style Telecaster Control Plate in one of 4 available finishes.

 

Knob Style & Size - 1/4" Solid Shaft

All of my Telecaster Wiring Kits are built with US Spec 1/4" Solid Shaft Potentiometers.  Many import guitars use Import Spec parts with either a press-fit knob and a split shaft or a 6mm solid shaft.  If this is the case with your guitar, your original knobs will not fit this wiring harness.  You are of course welcome to source your own knobs - just make sure they are 1/4" Solid Shaft secured with a set screw.  I also have the appropriate 1/4" Solid Shaft Compatible Knobs available for your convenience.
