920D Custom T3W-C 3-Way Control Plate for Telecaster

Polish your tone while remaining traditional! The 920D 3-way control plate cleans up your tone and lets your pickups shine in any Tele-style guitar.

920D's 3-Way Control Plate is far from stock. Pre-wired and drop-in ready, it's built to completely clean up your tone and let the full quality of your pickups shine through. Also consider the 920D Control Plate -- the ultimate upgrade to polish and improve your tone.

All 920D Custom products are highlighted with 920D signature orange wire. Gavitt Wire, a leading producer of premium guitar wire, has agreed to custom manufacture their signature cloth covered pushback wire, and it is the perfect choice for hotrodding your guitar. The wire is built with an outer waxed cotton layer and an inner Celanese braid that provides impressive ruggedness while still maintaining a 22 gauge thickness. Limiting the amount of wire on each build compliments your choice of pickups by creating the perfect balance between capacitance and resistance.

920D Custom potentiometers are used in this build. 920D pots are manufactured by CTS to their exact specifications and are metered for accuracy before being used in any 920D Custom gear.

920D specifies a 10% audio taper, accompanied with a low rotational torque rating of 0.50-2.00 in.oz (compared to the industry standard 0.75-6.00 in.oz rating) to provide a buttery knob sweep.

Potentiometer tolerances are held to +/-10%. The industry standard is +/-20%. Tightening potentiometer tolerances will help you accurately shape your tone.

- Pure Tone 1/4" Output Jack:
920D exclusively uses Pure Tone output jacks in all builds. Why? Because they're unquestionably read more better than the old, industry standard. Period.

The crackle of a weak connection caused by pressure grounds is due to the old style jack only having 1 squared-off point of contact trying to meet a rounded quarter inch plug. Pure Tone has completely changed that.

Pure Tone's multi-contact quarter inch output jack has 4 rounded contact points that hold the quarter inch plug firmly in place. With 4 times the contact points, all of the dreaded cracks, snaps, and pops are gone for good. The second you plug into this jack, you'll never want to go back.

- Orange Drop Capacitors:
920D uses Orange Drop Capacitors in their builds since day one. Orange Drop Polyester Film / Foil Capacitors are wound from the most reliable polyester film and aluminum foil available and are protected by a rugged conformal coating of orange epoxy.

All of that to say, these capacitors do a tremendous job of warming up your tone and taking away some of the bite of an overly bright sound. Like 920D's potentiometers, these capacitors are held to a +/-10% tolerance.

CRL 3-Way Switch
920D builds their T3W Control Plate with the best 3-Way Switch on the market - a CRL 3-Way Switch. It shouldn't come as a surprise that these are well known for being super durable, noise-free, and allowing a variety of mods.

- Hand-Built In The U.S.A.:
All 920D Custom creations are hand-built by experienced technicians at their shop in Greenbrier, Arkansas. Every millimeter of wire is cut precisely, every solder joint is perfectly smooth and symmetrical, and every bend is purposeful and direct.

"Plate Size Too Big"

Overall: 3.5 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
The plate dimensions are too big for a straight swap. Had to transfer pots and switch to the old control plate. Sounds good. Also, the black plastic knob on the switch keeps falling.
