If you’re looking to add a pair of new sounds to your setup, the Monty’s Telecaster 5 Way Switching Drop in Loom is a sensible, versatile addition. Each of the middle three positions are the same as a regular Telecaster 3-way, meaning you won’t lose any of the timeless tone.
In the front position, the Monty’s 5-way Telecaster wiring harness wires the pickups together in series. This means you have two pickups combined into one circuit. This increases the total output, as it adds together the combined output of the two pickups. The result is a very thick, warm sound with an increase in overall volume
The rear position also includes pickups wired together in series. The difference is that a resistor bleeds the majority of the signal from the neck pickup to ground. This makes for an indulgent, fat sound – while retaining the bright, tight detail that a Telecaster bridge pickup is known for.
