New partscaster build- 1st for me.

I am looking at a wiring kit.

I want a classic 60's tele sound. Will this do?
Thanks

If you are building a standard kind of telecaster you will need a 3-way blade style switch not a les paul style toggle.

And 500k + .022 mfd caps are usually for humbuckers, whereas a classic 60's tele sound would use 250k + .047 mfd cap. Though that's up to taste.
