HOAGLAND CUSTOM has specialized in custom guitar wiring and pickup making for 20 years and we love what we do!

This Tele wiring harness will give you an additional switch position and an EXPANDED TONE CONTROL.

This harness features a Fender brand TBX Control. TBX stands for "Treble Bass EXpander".
It was introduced by Fender in the mid to late '80's. Fender's own description of it is as follows:

"This detented, stacked 250k/1meg control enhances your tonal palette without the use of a battery. From "0" to "5", the TBX is your standard tone control but, once you pass "5", you start to decrease the resistance, which allows more bass, treble, and presence and output to flow to your amp."

Lots of mystery surround this tone control but there's nothing difficult about it. It gives you a greater range of tone control than a standard pot can give you. More highs. More lows.

This harness also features a 4-way switch for series/parallel switching.

While all of our wiring solutions are built to be installed rather easily, every guitar is different. We always recommend that you have a professional guitar technician at your local guitar shop install it for you. They are experienced troubleshooters and are equipped to get the best from your setup!

Usually, our buyers prefer to process their payment through our website (credit card) but we do offer other options: Venmo, Zelle, a personal check (as long as you're willing to wait 30 days for it to properly clear), PayPal, and, of course, cash. While we don't suggest it, you could send cash through the mail to us but, when you do that, we take absolutely ZERO responsibility for it until it is in our hands.

Orders are usually shipped within 48 hours of purchase... sometimes faster. We ship all orders United States Postal Service.

All of our products are custom-made. ALL of them. That is, we do not maintain a large stock of pre-built wiring harnesses or pickups. Your wiring harness or pickup is not built until you order it. The reason for that is simple: this is a custom shop. We build our products to our client's specifications. As such, we try to be accommodating in accepting returns but there is a 40% restocking fee for doing so. Also, the buyer pays return shipping to Hoagland Custom. Your custom-built wiring harness might be perfect for you but the parts can't be used again and the harness that you ordered now must be sold to another guitar player. It might sit here in our shop for 6 months or a year before someone orders the exact same wiring harness. Or, it may never sell. We understand that, sometimes, you make a mistake in ordering something so we want to be sensitive to that. But, that comes at a cost. We appreciate your understanding.
