Emerson's 3-Way tele kits are their most popular prewired kit.. and for good reason; They improve your tone! They take great pride in using premium components that work and sound better than stock electronics found in your guitar. Emerson's pots are hand-metered and matched for great consistency and even taper on both the volume and tone knob (better control when rolling down the volume knob... no more mud) The Emerson Paper in Oil capacitors sound amazing! Paper in Oil capacitors were used in vintage Fender and Gibsons for good reason... They sound amazing. Their kits are painstaking wired by hand one at a time in Broken Arrow Oklahoma, USA. Emerson takes great pride in their solder work and neatness when they craft their prewired kits. Emerson builds their kits to last a very long time and perform great. We think you will appreciate the detail both sonically and visually that goes into each and every one of their prewired kits.
This is a 3-Way Tele prewired assembly for Telecaster style guitars featuring 2 single coil pickups. It will drop into most American Fender Teles with no modification. **(If purchasing the Reverse control plate kit please see install notes below)**
Wired with 22 AWG vintage push-back wire for that vintage look and sound. Soldered connections to the input jack are insulated with heat-shrink to ensure durability and long life. If you are installing this on an import guitar with metric sized pots you may need to ream your control plate holes to accept the slightly larger US-Spec pots and buy US-Spec knobs.
