Switch - Fender®, Pickup Selector, 4-Way Telecaster Mod
Whether you need to replace a worn switch or just want to add a little tonal variety to your favorite instrument, Fender&reg offers this high quality, 4 position switch with knob and mounting hardware. Telecaster players have long debated the merits of having their pickups wired in parallel vs. in series. In the traditional parallel wiring configuration, pickup output is relatively consistent across all three positions. A Telecaster with its pickups wired in series differs in that when both pickups are on at the same time, the combination produces fatter tone and higher output.
