Tone Pot Harness

  • Tone Pot Wiring Harness

    Electronics tend to be where guitar manufacturers save money and this can lead to faulty or low quality parts in imported guitars. This is why we provide hand-wired Gretsch wiring harnesses with the highest quality parts and craftsmanship to make sure you can get the most out of your rig. TV Jones Wiring Harnesses utilize Switchcraft jacks/switches, CTS 500k pots and Orange Drop capacitors.  If you have a custom request, give us a call and we may be able to accommodate.  Pictured: Short Switch/Split Shaft Pots/Nickel

    Tone Pot Wiring Harness: One pickup selector, one master volume, two independent pickup volumes, one tone pot, and an output jack.

    **Designed for hollow body guitars**

  • Helpful Notes

    Short or Long Switch? If your guitar is thinner than 2 ⅛” then you will need a short switch.

    Split or Solid Shaft Pots? Electromatics, Streamliners, and ‘89 -’03 (pre-Fender) Gretsch guitars will require split shaft pots if you want to keep your stock knobs. Vintage and post-Fender pro-level Gretsch guitars will require solid shaft pots to fit stock knobs. If you are upgrading with our Gretsch or TV Jones knobs then you will need solid shaft pots.

    Fender-era Pro Gretsch: The pro-level Gretsch guitars of the current era already come with quality components like the ones we use. If replacing the harness, you will need solid shaft pots for your stock knobs.

    Metric Pot Replacement: Metric pots (like on Electromatics and Streamliners) generally come mounted into smaller mounting holes (5/16"). These will need to be enlarged to 3/8" with a reamer or small sanding bit to fit our CTS pots.

    Switch Tip Replacement: Electromatics, Streamliners, and ‘89 -’03 (pre-Fender) Gretsch guitars will require a new switch tip with a TV Jones harness. The stock switch tips for these guitars are metric and will not thread onto the new switch.

I took a base model Gretsch Streamliner and began playing around with mods for fun/learning. After upgrading the knobs and pick guard, fixing some finish issues, and polishing the frets, I decided it was time to go with some new TV Jones pickups. I put a Classic Plus in the bridge and it sounded great.

When I was ready to do the neck pickup, I decided I would also upgrade the wiring harness... WOW what a difference! Not only does my Classic Plus in the bridge sound better, but my new neck pickup sounds awesome too!

The harness was very well done and fit my guitar beautifully. It wasn't hard at all to install. The pots are super responsive compared to the stock harness. The sound im getting know is so clear compared to the muddy sound of the stock wiring/pickups!

If you are going to put out the money for new pickups for your guitar, spend the extra money and do the harness while you do it. you won't be disappointed!

5 Stars Thus Far

Received the tone pot harness quickly, and everyone at the shop was very helpful, making adjustments as needed when they discovered the harness would need a different switch tip for my particular guitar. Great job. Will try and post an update once the harness is installed with my new TV Classic neck pickup.

Major tune-up for my 6120

TV Jones products are simply the best. If you're thinking about purchasing pickups or a tone-pot harness, stop thinking and just do it. You won't regret it.
