I also wired the bridge pickup to the bottom tone knob while I had the pickguard off.
so you just changed color ?
The difference in the color of the finish is just the lighting.
In some light it looks purple, in other light blue. That's why my son calls it blurple.
I like the black knobs and covers for what it is worth.
The plastic color changes look better and the wiring mod is good. Next try a series/parallel mod for positions 2&4.
Actually, I very rarely use those positions. I would rather have a "Gilmour" switch.
Yeah the black rocks
Black looks better to me on that color guitar, that's the cool thing about Fender Strats, easy to swap things around, well fairly easy ....
I wouldn't have thought to go that color route, but it looks great! I've also done the "bridge pickup to the bottom tone knob" mod to my Strats.... even my '66. Just makes sense (to me).
Looks great! I really dig the black pickups. Got me thinking
Looks great and I've done this a few times myself over the years. Trouble is, I always go back to the original white/parchment colours after a few months.
I have something similar on my MIM Strat as well, but mine is Master Vol, Master tone, bridge pickup on/off. I don't think the black pickups go well everywhere, but it looks great on your Strat. I dig that blurple too
What a beautiful guitar! No matter which way you slice it. Those Mexican Strats are an awesome buy for no more than they cost. I wish I had one. Maybe that will be my next purchase - one to experiment with, or maybe just add a white blonde finish by swapping the alder body for ash. I can always change back if I change my mind. Good score on that once again. The Blurple is beautiful and RARE!
That looks really good brother. I like that purple either way.
My Blackie used to look like the "after' shot as I had Kent Armstrong pickups and all black knobs, switch tip etc. Thinking of going back to that as those pickups screamed.
Yeah, that look is nice, but I'd add either an aged white pearl pickguard, or a blue pearl pickguard just for something different.
I detest pearl pickguards.
But that's just me.
I put a pearl pickguard on my strat once and my wife said it looked hideous. Everyone that saw it said it was ugly. On my next string change I put it back.
I like the white original best, just me. I also like to switch the middle tone to the bridge. I never use the middle PU except in conjunction with the neck or bridge, so for me there is no reason for the middle PU to have tone control. Cool strat. I have a Fat Strat, same color. Platefire
