  • Modding a strat for B+N position

    For me, the biggest problem with strats is they lack the very important bridge pickup + neck pickup sound/

     

    What's the easiest way to modify one to provide this? I could see using a pushpull pot or maybe wiring it to one of the positions on the 5way that I don't usually use...

    Either a super switch or a push pull so you don't loose the standard five positions. I have one of each. LOL

        Also If you don't like position 2 or 4 you can just do a lead swap. Either neck or bridge with the middle. Ill have to think what the new positions would be but I'm sure you can figure it out too.

          Mini switch for each pickup?

        My favorite is to just swap the pickups physically. As in the middle pickup and the neck pickup get swapped. Then you can have B+N fully noise free.

          this is... beautifully simple and awesome. I am shocked I never thought of it.

          I have a 3-pickup PRS that I used a superswitch on. I replaced the middle position (middle pickup) with bridge-neck.

          I have two Strats that I used a pot to blend the neck pickup into any position. This gives you the ability to have bridge or bridge-neck in the normal bridge position, but it also gives you the ability to have bridge-middle or all three in the normal bridge-middle position.
