ITEM DESCRIPTION
These customized hand-wired harnesses work well with most Two Pickup (i.e. Humbucker-Humbucker or Humbucker-Single) Systems. Each harness is unique and, based on order selections as well as current component stock on hand, may vary in appearance from the sample images.

This prewired harness features the following default options. Your menu selections may vary and we will wire to order.
*1 Standard 3 Way Open Toggle Switch
*1 CTS 500K Large/Long Push-Pull Vol. Pot
*1 CTS Precision 500K Large/Long Tone Pot
*1 Sprague Orange Drop 0.047 Tone Cap
*1 Pro-Series Switchcraft® #11 Mono Style Jack
*1 Wiring Jig
*2 Knobs (choice of colors)
Customizable Options & Upgrades Available!

The included 3-Way Open Style Toggle Switch (LP / Gibson Switch Style) provides standard 3 Way pickup selections allowing for Bridge/Bridge-Neck/Neck playing options. We offer your choice of shaft/handle and switch tip color choices.

These harnesses use CTS Precision Style full-size large pots (quarter size) with long shafts for body mounting. The volume pot is a CTS push-pull pot for coil splitting; these are the longer life CTS pots with brass bushings in a space saving design. The tone pot is a standard CTS pot. If you are going through a guard or have a non-standard set-up, you may need additional nuts/washers (sold separately) or other modification. These pots work with most fine-knurled, 24-spline style knobs (sold separately). Audio Taper (“A” pot) or Linear Taper (“B” pot) and your choice of OHM styles are available and we offer your choice of OHM style: 250K or 500K.

The Coil Split Wiring incorporated into this harness allows you to split the coils on your humbucker in half, cutting one coil out and allowing your humbucker to perform as a single coil (also known as Coil Cut or Coil Tap). Four wire pickups are required for a coil split to work. For an HS, the coil split will only impact the humbucker. For an HH, this single coil split will function simultaneously for both pickups.

Note that we do not recommend selecting a 250K pot for use with a push-pull coil tapping pot (exercise extreme discretion!). We provide the option to choose a North Coil (cuts the South and leaves only the North Coil engaged) or South Coil (cuts the North and leaves only the South engaged).

Our tone control capacitors help produce balanced bass, middle, and treble. This harness includes one Sprague Orange Drop tone cap. Choose from 0.022uF (often paired with 250K pots) or 0.047uF (usually used with 500K pots). If you prefer, we also offer Paper in Oil (Black Bee) Style of Tone Caps.

Harness jacks work with standard cables only and jack sockets accept standard ¼” plugs. Your choice:
*Mono Jack (9mm mounting hole; tightens to your jack plate)
*Stereo Jack (9mm mounting hole; tightens to your jack plate)
*Barrel Jack (12mm mounting hole; tightens inside of guitar)
*Switchcraft Jack (10mm mounting hole; tightens to jack plate)

Installation requires soldering. Basic instructions are posted in the item images to show the solder connections needed. Please know your abilities, requirements, measurements and needs to make sure this item will work for you. We are available to answer any questions before you buy.

We wire each harness to order and offer many style and upgrade options along with typical replacements in standard and left-handed versions. We can accommodate many styles and preferences. If you don’t see what you are looking for, contact us for a custom quote.

WHAT’S INCLUDED (What You Get)
*1 Prewired Guitar Wiring Harness Kit
Nothing else is included. Additional images may be provided for reference and comparison purposes only. There are no hard copy instructions or diagrams included. Basic directions are provided in the product images.

OPTIONAL ADDITIONS (Further Customize Your Harness!)
The Kill Switch Wiring Option allows you to interrupt the signal using an on-off, two-way toggle style mini-switch (~5.85mm diameter; 6mm hole required).

The Treble Bleed Volume Kit Wiring Modifier addresses loss of high-end signal when turning down your volume pot to keep more of your highs while maintaining volume adjustability. This option allows a more constant tone throughout the range of your volume pot and helps remove the dark muddiness typically experienced in the lower volume pot settings.

Add an Onboard Effects (OBFX) to expand your playing and get more nuance out of every session. Our OBFX product pages detail these circuits and what they can do for your set-up. Active circuits require power. These are small (dime size / mini pots for a ~10mm hole) with long shaft (~18mm) body mount pots. An OBFX takes the place of one Tone Pot (replacement pot); this upgrade is not available if you have selected a second push-pull pot for your tone control.
*BCU (Active): Band Control Unit (Tone Shaper)
*EXP (Active): Expand to Peak Controller (Tone Expander)
*QDD2 (Active): Quadra Channel Sound Driver (Overdrive)
*QTB (Active): Quadra Tone Booster Driver (Tone Boost)
*TBX: Treble Bass Expander by Fender® (no battery req’d)
*VTC (Active): VTB/VTC Tone Expander (Tone Overdrive)

PURCHASE NOTES
Buyers assume all risk of use; sales are only offered to those competent to safely and lawfully purchase and use items. ASK ANY QUESTIONS PRIOR TO PURCHASE. Due to the vast and varied nature of possible set-ups and user expertise, we do not provide specific information for every possible installation scenario. The provided BASIC instructions (posted in the item images, not sent as a hard copy with your order) will get you started. Please ask any questions before you buy if the posted instructions are not sufficient for your install or if you are unsure of your needs or ability to make modifications.

Note that we do not recommend installation using power tools as these can put too much force on the product and cause damage. Installation is best with moderate heat only (don’t have your iron too hot). Pay attention during install to avoid damage; components are sensitive. Excessive or prolonged heat can cause irreparable damage. This item is prewired. If your set-up requires you to disconnect the wires, be sure to take a picture or make note of the connections so you can reattach (solder!) properly. We do not recommend a clip/tie method for installation.

Inspect your order upon receipt. We will address any issues PRIOR to installation. Installation, modification, or use in any way invalidates the possibility of a return.
