Helping a friend out here with some soldering...I've wired plenty of tele's before but my friend just had his vintage pickups fixed/rewound (by Tom Brantley) and forgot to take a pic of the control switch wiring before sending them off. Found several of pics of the pots/cap wiring online but can't find a single one of the switch! Can someone kindly post one? Much appreciated, Luca

Luca,

This diagram should provide what you need.

Finally getting to wiring the steel..

Simple as it may be..if anyone has a actual pic that I can copy/compare to the schematic that would still be of great help. Again, I've wired many Tele's but all the Tele wiring diagrams are not schematics but actual pics of all the parts. Very easy to follow of course.

Meanwhile, could someone also explain what the difference is (if any) between the lines with an arrowhead on one end vs the straight lines? I know the straight lines are simple wire connections. Thx

The arrow indicates the center lug/wiper of the pot.
