Strat Wiring with Bass and treble Controls


An intuitive new Strat® wiring Scheme designed and made by us; clear up the muddiness by turning the bass down. Turn down the biting treble by turning down the treble control. A much more logical layout for the knobs on a Strat!


Using top grade electronic components found in high end guitars, our Hi-Lo Strat® wiring harness uses expertly soldered vintage cloth wire to boot guaranteeing the best true-tone of your pickups

  • 5 way pickup selector switch
  • Strat wiring diagram to connect your pickups and jack/ground

Follow our easy to understand wiring diagram provided. This kit comes with a prewired jack socket and just needs attaching to the volume control.

Solderless Installation Option

When a Solderless version is bought, you have a super easy job as you only need to screw in the connections – no soldering iron required! Follow our easy to understand wiring diagram provided. This kit comes with a prewired jack socket and just needs attaching to the volume control.

Right or Left Handed

Select whether you wish to have your wiring made right or left handed, lefties turn fully anticlockwise for full volume. We’ll use a top quality C Curve CTS pot so that the volume and tones turn down evenly and smoothly

Will this fit my guitar?

This Stratocaster® wiring harness will fit any Strat style guitar. You may be required to drill the holes on your pickguard to 10mm diameter to accommodate the larger USA CTS pots. The pot body is 24mm

If installing into an imported model or Strat® copy, you may need new control knobs and switch tip to fit the US made CTS pots and Pickup Switch.

Need a loaded pickguard ? We can load in this wiring into your Custom Pickguard order no stress!
