The PG out of phase sound on a Strat

Post by Ulysses »

Okay, how exactly would I achieve this on an SSS strat? I suppose the best option would be to reverse the wiring on the middle pickup, but... where? On the pick up base, on the 5-way switch or the volume pot? Changing it on the pickup base is no option for me as I'm not that skilled a solderer and I'd most likely end up melting the plastic around the plate.

I have an old SX strat that I don't use at all so I'm open toany sortof experimenting. Awile ago I tried changing out the magnet itself, but the thing wouldn't budge.

I'll check into it.I suppose the easiest way would be to switch the hot and the ground wires on the pickup itself.

It's amazing how much more complicated wiring gets going from two to three pickups!

Brings back memories of various attempts to rewire pickups in my past while I gradually realised I was rubbish at soldering!!
A PG out of phase sound is a good one if you can get it wired up right. :thumbsup:

Oh, yes! I remember putting the Seymour Duncan JB Jr. Humbucker into my strat - with a push-pull poti. Very simple electric lines, but too many wrong choices... :lol:
