I read on another forum about how Jimi Hendrix wired his strat (at one point, anyway) like a tele with the neck and bridge pickups on a 3 way switch (which were stock at the time). The middle pickup was wired separately to one of the tone pots...as a volume straight to the output. The other tone pot became a master tone, presumably. I'm waiting for a set of Lace Hot Gold pickups to arrive and I'm going to try it. Having the 3 tele-style switch settings would suit me alot better onstage. Being able to blend the middle pickup in to get those 'inbetween' strat sounds makes more sense than having them on the switch where I have to switch past them every time I access the settings I actually use. The only drawback I can see is the inconvenience of having to turn down the main volume and turn up the middle volume to get the middle pup on its own...but I probably would use the neck/bridge setting in preference anyway. The more I think about it the more sense it makes. I mainly use a tele and I always have a hard time with a strat. This should help. Whatcha think?
