Telecaster Custom Wiring

Coil-tap and out-of-phase

The owner of this Telecaster style guitar wanted a range of sounds from one guitar. I fitted a Kent Armstrong HRC-1 high output humbucker to the neck position and a Kent Armstrong TEHR-1 twin rails Telecaster pickup to the bridge. Both the volume and tone controls were fitted with push-pull switches, to coil tap the humbuckers and put them out of phase.

The result is a guitar capable of an outstanding range of sounds, from standard Telecaster to thick Les Paul with a touch of Strat and Jazz Master thrown in.
