Right or Left Handed

Select whether you wish to have your wiring made right or left handed, lefties turn fully anticlockwise for full volume. We’ll use a top quality C Curve CTS pot so that the volume and tones turn down evenly and smoothly

Will this fit my guitar?

This Telecaster® wiring harness will fit any Tele® style guitar. You may be required to drill the holes on your controls plate to 10mm diameter to accommodate the larger USA CTS pots. The pot body is 24mm

If installing into an imported model or Tele® copy, you may need new control knobs and switch tip to fit the US made CTS pots and Pickup Switch.
