Installation and Wiring Diagrams

Installation Guidelines

Installing the Tesi Switch is simple.  Your package will include basic instructions, and listed below are various wiring diagrams that will help you along your journey.


If you're drilling a hole please note that the size listed for the switch IS the actual mounting hole size.  


Here are a few tips:  

Drilling in wood:       *If you are not confident in your skills, please have a professional install your switch. You can refer to our list of approved installers, or a tech that you trust.        

-Use masking or painters tape to cover the finish of your guitar to prevent chipping around the hole.
-Mark the hole using the properly sized hole template so you know how big to make it

-Use a Forstner Bit to make the hole, using a high-speed drill.  A cordless drill will work fine. When drilling, move through the finish and wood very slowly. This is the best way to make a clean hole.        

-It's always best to make a hole slightly smaller than necessary and then use a reamer to finish the job, tiny bit by tiny bit.         

-Remember that once you drill the hole too big, there's no going back to just the right size.

Drilling in a pickguard:        

-Taping the pickguard will be helpful for marking where the hole will go, but will not have any affect on the plastic as it shouldn't crack or peel when drilled.

-Forstner bits are still the best, but any drill bit that is easy to control will do. If you are using a standard drill bit, use an awl or something sharp to center the bit on the pickguard.
-Move slowly to make sure the hole is clean.
-It's always best to make a hole slightly smaller than necessary and then use a reamer to finish the job, tiny bit by tiny bit.
