Emerson Reverse 3 Way Telecaster Prewired Kit is our most popular prewired kit.. and for good reason. They improve your tone!
The team at Emerson Custom take great pride in using premium components that work and sound better than stock electronics found in your guitar. Our 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) Our Emerson Paper in Oil capacitors sound amazing! Paper in Oil capacitors were used in vintage Fender and Gibson for good reason… They sound amazing.
Emerson kits are wired by hand one at a time in Broken Arrow Oklahoma, USA. We take great pride in our solder work and neatness when we craft our prewired kits. Built to last a very long time and perform to the high level of quality you would expect from Emerson. We think you will appreciate the detail both sonically and visually that goes into each and every one of our prewired kits.
This is a Reverse 3 Way Telecaster Prewired Kit 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.

Reverse Control Plate Setup Note: Volume, Tone & 3-way Switch. (Volume Control is parallel to the bridge pickup for players that like to use their volume knob a lot for swells and more overall control). Due to the nature of “flipping your controls” you may have to modify your existing cavity route by lengthening the area underneath the the control plate to fit the reverse control layout.
