920D Custom 3-Way Control Plate for Telecaster

Don't settle for standard -- upgrade to 920D's Custom 3-way control plate! Its custom CTS pots deliver an exceptionally smooth audio taper on each knob.

920D's 3-Way Control Plate is far from stock. Pre-wired and drop-in ready, it's based on the classic single bridge pickup Telecaster wiring mod. Consider this Control Plate the ultimate upgrade to polish and improve your tone.

- 920D Custom Signature Wiring:
All 920D Custom products are highlighted with their signature orange wire. Gavitt Wire, a leading producer of premium guitar wire, has agreed to custom manufacture this 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 450G Series Potentiometers:
Pots are manufactured by CTS to 920D's exact specifications and are metered for accuracy before being used in any 920D Custom gear.

920D specify 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.

They hold potentiometer tolerances 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 use Pure Tone output jacks in all builds. Why? Because they're unquestionably better than the old, read more industry standard. Period.

You've heard the crackle of a weak connection caused by pressure grounds. This 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 has used 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 their potentiometers, these capacitors are held to a +/-10% tolerance.

- CRL 3-Way Switch:
TESQ-ELD-C is built using a genuine CRL 3-Way Switch - which are well known for their durability and noise-free reliability. CRL switches are rated to last a lifetime. Hands down, this is the switch you want in your guitar.

- Hand-Built In The U.S.A.:
All 920D Custom creations are hand-built by experienced technicians at their shop in Greenbrier, Arkansas. They treat your new gear like it's going into one of their own guitars. Every millimeter of wire is cut precisely, every solder joint is perfectly smooth and symmetrical, and every bend is purposeful and direct. 920D hold everything to a tremendous level of quality because they know the smallest details matter and take great pride in their work.
