Grimmer Posted October 25, 2003 Share Posted October 25, 2003 I don't know about you guys, but I have found a really nifty way to mod your strat without changing the look of it or adding any kinds of switches. Switch out your five way switch with a three way switch (stay with me). Run your neck and bridge pickup in a (1)Neck (2)Neck-Bridge (3)Bridge setup. Then, simply take your first tone pot and convert it into a passive volume control for your middle pickup. Route the hot-wire from that control straight to your tone. Now you can make any combination of pickup you want, and I have found that nailing the right tone is actually far easier with the single tone pot. Plus, your guitar will appear completely stock. This is the wiring I recommend for most of the Strats that I rebuild. It is surprisingly easy to use quickly on stage too. I gaurantee you will dig the Three together position, it totally kills for a real thick Santana-esque tone. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
