    I recently rewired my Telecaster wiring and I love it so much I decided to post a diagram here to see what you guys think of it.

    • The resistor in line with the neck pickup is to lower its volume to a level comparable to the bridge pickup
    • I decided I didn't need a tone pot with this guitar. The Fender vintage 58' pickup isn't too shrill and the P90 certainly doesn't need a tone pot
    • In position 2, the second pot can be used to blend the two pickups: more twang one way, smoother the other. I learnt that it's better to use a linear pot for this (easier to adjust the blend).
    • The Treble Bleed circuit is used to keep the tone from getting too dark when you lower the volume (more info here)

    I didn't draw the wires that go to ground cause I'm lazy...
