Wiring loom - For Stratocaster® - Neck Blend

This is a wiring loom designed to fit, pretty much any Fender® Strat® - specifically, any with 3 singles coils, as we'd think of as the standard.

This is actually a modification circuit which differs from the oringla design, in that, rather then having two tone pots, you get the following controls.

Master Tolume - functions as a normal volume pot on any other strat

Master Tone - a normal tone control, but not opperates on all 3 pickups

"Neck Blend" - this is the fun one - basically, its a pot that replaces the old middle tone control, and allows you to blend in the neck pickup at any point in the curcuit whenever the bridge pickup is on.

This allows you to add two "extra" positions to your guitar - either Bridge + middle + neck, all on at the same time, or the very popular Bridge + neck option, which gives a cool, out of phase/polarity pseudo Tele® tone.

But beyond that, its business as usual realy.

Wired up, to order, here at Axes Towers in Hull, East Yorkshire, using CTS pots (250k, vintage audio taper on vol and tone, 250k no load linear on the blend) a Cornell Dubillier orange drop capacitor (0.022 @ 100v), an Oak Grigsby 5 way switch, all using 22 AWG vinitage cloth cover wired for the cleanest signal path possible.

And to top it off, its supplied with a top of the range Switchcraft Mono socket (short thread)

All in all, couldn't be easier to install - simply a case of connecting your pickups to the switch, connecting the jack socket, and connecting the spare ground wire to the trem claw to ground out the strings.

Up Close and Personal

Worth having a look at the looms in a little more detail - just to see some of the nice points on there, and why we do it the way we do it.

Stratocaster Volume pot

Volume Pot

Heres the volume pot - CTS 450 Series, brass shaft, brass threaded collar, and a 24 spline split post, ideal for our UFO knobs. Notice the heat shrink on the input and output terminals? Strictly speaking, its not essential, but it does offer extra protection to the solder joints, against shorting and with a little mechanical strength.

Oak Grigsby Switch fitted to strat

Switch

We've been using the Oak Grigsby 5 way switches for a while now, and they're actually very good. They dont have any noticable effect on the tone of the guitar, but they are incrediblly hard wearing, and very resistant to the heat of soldering (something you dont always see on cheaper switches).
