1 reverb11 1 month ago I know this is likely not the ideal place to post this, but this is the forum I know best, so here goes.A bit of background: For years, I avoided Stratocasters. My first good guitar was a '75 hardtail strat, which I sold in the '90s. I was the second owner. I got this weird idea that strats were generic--every other player I saw had one, and it was the height of the SRV wannabe era. I haven't owned a strat for the 20 years. Last year, a friend loaned me his Custom Shop N.O.S '56 strat, and I fell in love. It sounds great, and it may be the most comfortable guitar I've ever played. So, now I'm on a bit of a strat kick.I bought that '56 strat from my friend, and it has custom shop pickups in it, with "50's" wiring, which means no tone control on the bridge pickup, and no RWRP on the middle pickup, so no hum cancelling in #2 or #4 position.What I want to do is this: swap out the middle pickup (which I never use) for a RWRP pickup and rewire the guitar with a master tone and master volume using a "blender pot." I've bought a period-appropriate gold anodized guard (the strat is white blonde) and will wire it up, to leave the original guard and electronics as unmolested as possible.What will I "lose," in terms of tone, if anything, from doing this? I really like how the guitar sounds now, but I would like a bit of control over the tone of that bridge pickup from time to time. Thoughts?
