Kinman TK4 Harness

Beautifully designed and brilliantly manufactured.  The TK4 Harness comes with a 4 position pickup selector switch.  In addition to the regular pickup selections the 4th position combines the two pickups in series to provide instant volume boost for a fatter tone and crunch sound (thanks to the increased output).  This connection yields a sound not unlike a P-90/Humbucker in some respects, but with Zero-Hum.

A re-designed circuit board to mount the pickup sockets away from the selector switch so it's not so squeezy in the control cavity.  A miniature slide switch changes the volume pot resistance between 250k for throaty sound and 500k for thinner sound.  The Volume control has been moved 8mm further away from the selector switch further improving the separation of these controls.  This is clever ergonomic design at it's best

The volume pot has the famous Kinman treble bypass filter so you won't lose highs when you turn the volume down.  Another sweet feature is a tiny slide switch on the harness that allows you to choose between the High Definition tone cap and a regular .022uF tone cap.  The Hi-Def setting has a subtle effect on the highs, not nearly so profound as the Normal .022 setting and at first you might think it's not working.  But once you get it you may just like it a lot.  All it takes is 60 seconds of your time to easily reset that switch.

Soldering is eliminated 100% with this ingenious harness when Kinman pickups are included in order.  Even other brand pickups will connect without soldering.
