    Re: 4-way Tele-Switch Wiring

    I've had solder flow down the contact and short stuff. Now I use less solder - just enough to make contact.

    Fixed the problem...

    Turned out to be a short in the switch itself...

    Go figure, I never before had any problems with Fender switches.

    I'm wondering if that uses the differential ground instead of lifting the ground on one pup, if so that sounds exactly like one I came up with ... my reasoning was that it was better(desigan and application wise) and could be used on strat pups as well (ie ...no shielded covers) ... there is also a screw up one around that was a preliminary of mine that a guy stole (put on his site no less) .. hhmm ... John check your PM.

    Actually the Texas Special Tele Pups already have the Neck Cover ground wire separate...

    I should have stated that!

    I've got a better or upgraded version of the wiring for the 4 way Tele switch from a real good electronics guy via the FDP...Can't remember his name now?

    Followed Fender's guide, but really low volume NOW
