MAKE YOUR TELE SCREAM.
The ObsidianWire Custom 4-Way wiring harness adds a fourth position to your Telecaster for a new dimension of sound. The bridge and neck pickup work together for a humbucker like tone, which is usefull for both rhythm and lead playing. While the Custom 4-Way gives you a 4th position option, the traditional switch positions remain along with the classic master tone and volume controls.
ObsidianWire’s Custom 4-Way wiring is an easy to install, pop-in upgrade for your Telecaster. Using their revolutionary approach to guitar electronics, this pre-wired harness is a completely solderless solution with special lock-down “Plug, Play & Enjoy” connectors – simply twist your pickup’s wire and insert them into the connector slots and you’re
The ObsidianWire Custom 4-Way also includes an ObsidianWire Custom Spec Treble Bleed Mod, which helps to eliminate “muddiness” at lower volumes by allowing high frequencies to pass along a separate path to your amp. Without the Custom Spec Treble Bleed Mod, the frequencies would be stopped short by the increasing resistance at the volume control, leaving you with an unclear tone.

1. Neck & Bridge Pickup in Series (Humbucker Like Tone)
2. Neck Pickup Only
3. Neck & Bridge Pickup in Parallel (Traditional Tele Tone)
