T2 Upgrade

Product Description

Now you can Soup Up your standard Telecaster (or similar guitar) to get more pickup tone power and also increase your creativity and versatility with additional fresh new pickup tones.

Your stock Telecaster is designed to give you a modest and inadequate 3 pickup tones. Don't you think it's worth a few dollars more to get a Grand Canyon Wide range of 6 Blues, Jazz, Metal, Surf, Country — plus the dozens of new and different pickup tones your stock guitar simply cannot produce?

This high performance upgrade gives you the ultimate in performance at the lowest cost.

It takes fifteen minutes to remove your stock control plate and connect your pickup wires to the upgrade's solderless terminal strip. Now a HUGE, alternate tone dimension will instantly open up to you.

Customer Comments:
"After installing this upgrade in my guitar, I stayed up all night playing it." — Alvin Sears

"The stock three tone selections are very limiting after installing your upgrade. I still have the stock three sounds but the extra three sounds are distinct and useful. I love having both pickups in series (and in-phase) giving me a very strong jazz-like tone, something you can't get out of a stock Telecaster. Hearing those additional two new intense and out-of-phase country twang tones (in both series and parallel version) gave me goosebumps. These glass-shattering tones will punch out windows at 30 paces. The download documents have detail more extensive than any other products that I have seen. Very well done!" — Graham Mann (Australia).

Special Update: This upgrade now includes Treble Bleed circuitry plus high quality mylar tone control capacitors (with a superior linear frequency response) for unequaled versatility. This upgrade give you "American Pro Telecaster" performance from your stock guitar.

Using This Upgrade

How It Works

Using our T2-Switch, you can

  1. Turn the Bridge pickup On,
  2. Turn the Neck pickup On,
  3. Turn the Bridge AND Neck pickups On in Parallel connection and in Normal Phase
    (the above three pickup tones are what you get with the stock 3-way blade switch.)

    (the below three pickup tones are ones that you cannot get with your stock instrument.)

  4. Turn the Bridge AND Neck pickups On in Parallel connection and in Reverse Phase
    (gives you a glass-shattering country twang tone you can't get with the stock instrument.)

  5. So with Switch SW5 in the Down position, you get the four pickup tones described above. You can turn on the Bridge pickup by itself, the Neck pickup alone, both the Bridge and Neck pickup together (in normal phase), as well as the Bridge and Neck pickup together (in reverse phase).

    When you put Switch SW5 in the Up position, you get the following two additional pickup tones with both pickups connected in Series. This gives you a warmer and more humbucking Jazz tone, that you just cannot get with your stock instrument.

  6. When you turn on both the Bridge AND Neck pickups On in Series and in Normal Phase
    (gives you a Humbucker-like Jazz tone you can't get with the stock instrument.)

  7. With both the Bridge AND neck pickups On in Series connection and in Reverse Phase
    (gives you an intense country twang tone you can't get with the stock instrument.)

You get six pickup tones with this upgrade.   < Less
