Main Description

A completely constructed Control loom, for a Fender® Telecaster® Thinline, wired to the modern standard - 3 way switching, 1 volume, 1 tone, bridge, both and neck - as we all know and love.

Near identical to a standard control loom for a Tele®, but with one simple difference - the pots on the thinline are closer together!

Built using the highest spec parts - CTS pots, Axesrus Switch, Cornell dubillier cap, 22 AWG vintage cloth hookup wire and a switchcraft socket, all connected together, ready to do, and mounted onto a beautifully plated control plate and barell knobs fitted.

The Standard Parts
This particular model is specifically designed to be used with single coils; simply because it’d get pretty daunting pretty quickly if we let you tweak every single part.

Pots – we always use CTS pots where we can, they’re top quality, they’ve got an exceptionally long life span, they’re what’s been used on the Telecaster® since day one, and let’s be honest, that’s the tone we’re chasing with this assembly.

Caps – You’ll see various discussions out there about which cap is the best, “which value/which voltage/what materials are going to give me the best tone?” – And there’s a whole raft of opinions as to the right answer. Rather than get drawn into it, we’ve kept it simple – you’re getting a 0.047, 100v Cornell Dubliner Orange Drop cap. Not because we don’t subscribe to the whole “great cap debate” – but it’s just the most bang for your buck you’re going to get. It matches up to the originals in terms of electrical specification.

Wire – we use vintage correct 22 AWG black and white cloth covered waxed wire. A dream to work with and has no adverse effects on your tone.

Socket – That’ll be a Switchcraft standard Mono, best in the business if you ask us, dead simple to get your head around how it works, and just like CTS – will probably outlast every other part on a guitar.

The Switching
3 Way - This is what we’d call the standard setup for your average Telecaster® - it’s a full sized switch that’ll give you Bridge, Bridge and Neck in parallel and the Neck on its own – exactly how you’d expect if you’ve played any Tele® since about 1967! (Before then – wiring was a little different to say the least!)


Knobs – This was a bit of a bone of contention when it came to customisation to be honest. It was very tempting to offer knobs in different colours to the control plate and screws, offer them in different styles, different sizes. To be truthfully, it was just too much choice sadly, so we’ve limited you a little bit here – depending on your choices when it comes to optional extras you’re either getting solid shaft, dome topped knobs in the same colour as the Control plate. If you pick up the phase switch or wide range tone, then you’re getting push fit knobs (which work better with the split shaft pots well be using in those cases)

Tip – Supplied with a barrel switch tip.
