Here's another Great Sounding Tele that's perfect for rock, jazz, blues, country, and more. This unique "1 off" piece will amaze you by not only its incredible feel and playability, but by its unique look and sound versatility.
The 4 way selector switch allows you to have the pickups in either parallel (standard Tele mode) or series mode (for a thicker sound). You get a totally different and really really useful 4th sound, namely bridge and neck pickups in series. Normally, when 2 pickup are combined in position 2 of a Telecaster, they are wired in parallel. This is that fine and very classic Telecaster sound.
The nice thing about the 4-way switch is that you don't lose this sound, as the classic parallel sound still remains in position 2. However, you gain this really beefy tone with the added series connection in position 4. It provides a noticeably thicker and louder sound that is a bit darker as well. In esssence, you've taken the 2 pickups and combined the power of each in this position. This position is great for kickin into solos.
The four switch positions are:
2. Bridge + Neck (parallel)
4.Bridge + Neck (series).
Also, keep in mind that the 2 push/pull pots allows you further sound variations by using either pickup as a humbucker (down position) or as a single coil (up position). So, for example, with the selector switch in position 2 (or 4), you can have 4 different variations or sound by using (1) each pickup as a dual coil, (2 & 3) either one as a dual coil and the other as a single, (4) or both as single coils. You have a lot of pickup combinations to work with to color the sound just the way you want it.
