No Tone On Neck Telecaster Wiring
April 17, 2020
I much prefer the neck to not be wired to the tone control. This allows me to set my amp tone while on the neck pickup, then go to the bridge and darken it as needed.
For giggles, here is the modern Tele wiring diagram.
Here is the easiest way to do it. The one wire is removed connecting the volume pot to tone pot, and then a new and longer wire is attached to the tone pot, and to the same spot on the switch that the bridge pickup is also attached to.
And here is my modified diagram, and some pictures of my Kubicki Telecaster's wiring that is done this way
And here is a shot of the wiring Bill Crook did on the paisley Tele. It has no tone in the bridge position, or in the middle position. The wiring is different from the schematic above.
