Stratocaster wire mod - in series pickups switch


Looking at the picture below, the first switch (mod 1) configures the pickups in series:
  • neck+middle (series)
  • bridge+middle (series)
Besides that, a second switch (mod 1b) inverts the middle pickup, making the sound thicker or thiner.

The mod 1 switch also connects the tone control to the neck+middle "fake" humbucker.

*All the pots are 500K, making a more open sound and helping the basswood body limited tone response.








  • Mod 1 ON, mod 1b OFF and strat switch in position A: bridge+middle with thin sound
  • Mod 1 ON, , mod 1b OFF and strat switch in position B, C, D: mute
  • Mod 1 ON, mod 1b OFF and strat switch in position E: neck+middle with thin sound
