      habe gerade eine Mail an TV Jones geschrieben. Es geht um einen neuen Kabelbaum für die 5120. Ich hätte Interesse am Hot Rod Harness, weil ich (wie erwähnt) nur meine Volume-Poti benutze. Hier der Mailverkehr:
      Was sagst du dazu?


      You will have more fidelity, just making sure you know about this. The HR is less complicated as well.

      You can use the standard long switch, because the 5120 has a deep body.

      Thank you for your interest,
      TV Jones

      Hi again,

      sorry to bother you again.

      Does this mean you would not recommend to use the Hot Rod Harness
      because I would end up with too much treble?
      I would really prefer the HRH because in my opinion it is always better
      to have as little pots or any other components in the signal path as
      possible. However, if you say the sound would get too bright than I
      trust your experience, obviously :-)

      And with the Tone Pot option - a "Standard" toggle switch is which one
      exactly - short or long?

      Thank you for your quick help.

      You can use the Hotrod harness, but it can offer you more treble. Here
      is the standard tone pot harness below:

      I recommend a chrome Tone Pot harness with split shaft pots (to fit
      your metric knobs), standard toggle switch, and a chrome switch tip.
      We offer a harness installation tool kit––I recommend it.
      See our install video " Wiring Harness Install" in the Media section
      on our website.

      Hi TV Jones Team,

      I am interested in upgrading my 5120's harness. I have already upgraded
      the pickups to TV Jones Classic and Classic Plus (Bridge). I am leaning
      towards the Hot Rod Harness (HRH) because I hardly ever use the other
      controls anyway. My question is, 1. is it possible and advisable to use
      the HRH in a 5120 and if yes, which one is the correct one.

      I am looking forward to your suggestions.
      All the best from Germany.
