Opinions/Suggestions from strat guys


Most die hard Stat players prefer non reverse wound middle pickups. Having the middle reverse wound make position 2 & 4 sound a little darker and takes away some of classic Strat chime and bell like tone.

Honestly, there is no more noise coming from my Strat pickups than the Humbuckers on my Les Paul. I think people make too much of a big deal of it. My current Strat is a ‘55 CS.

It is a simple one wire (jumper) mod to wire the middle tone to your bridge pickup. I always do this. Here is a link to the mod:
