Will this fit my guitar?
Our pre-wired Fender Mustang Vintage Wiring harness is wired to fit genuine Fender USA or Mexican control plates. If installing into an imported model, you will need to ensure the Potentiometer holes on the control plate will take CTS pots (approx 10mm). This can be done using a round file or carefully with a 10mm drill.
Measurements between components
Centre of Volume to Tone pot = 50mm.
Centre of Tone Pot to Jack Socket = 40mm.
These measurements were taken from a USA Fender Mustang Control Plate.
