Great Tone and Sustain with lots of resonance


+ SRV Pickups Included 5 Way Switching includes-3 Single Coil and 2 Humbucking Modes !

Variable Treble Bleed Circuit included:
This mod keeps the tone you have on "10" throughout the entire range of the volume control.
We add a resistor capacitor network to the input and output of the volume control to
keep the highs from leaving your tone as the volume is decreased.
By adding this circuit we can help you avoid the "muddy-tone" syndrome.
Now your tone is much more controllable and articulate!

When the Treble Bleed Circuit is included:

Turning the volume control applies varying amounts of a specially tuned high frequency filter to the selected pickups. Now each pickup has the ability to produce a stronger, fuller tone and 50% less noise. On  Humbuckers (either North or South or both coils can be filtered). This variable treble bleed circuit is pre-installed. This variable treble bleed/bypass circuit corrects the problem of high frequency losses, provides auto-adjustment of tone at reduced volumes and improves audio taper between 3 and 10.

We hear you.


In MOST Fender Stratocaster guitars the tone control doesn't work for the bridge-only pickup on a Stratocaster.

It works on a few, approximately 1% of Stratocaster guitars whether made by Fender or by Squier, or Affinity, Fender Japan, Fender Taiwan, Fender Mexico, American (circa 1991) or Fender China and more have no tone control on the bridge pickup. The tone controls do work for the other four switch positions.


It was just a design that was only meant to please the inventor, Mr. Leo Fender.

Leo wanted a pickup position that sounded similar to a steel guitar. So now in Fender guitars the bridge pickup selection has no tone control wired to it whatsoever and no one at Fender Corp. since then has seemed to notice. They have failed to hear what guitarists for years have asked. Can we simply have a tone control on our bridge pickup? YES.

New from the Haywire Custom Guitars-Custom Shop

USA-Custom  Shop 7 Sound Stratocaster: Translation- NORMAL Position 1 of the 5-way selector switch activates the bridge pickup alone; by engaging the toggle switch, you will activate the neck pickup giving you the bridge and neck pickups together. Likewise, with the 5-way selector switch in the second position with the bridge and middle pickups activated, a flick of the toggle switch adds the neck pickup to the equation which gives you ALL of the pickups together. Two choice now missing on a stock Strat. 

Here's what you'll get after we added the 7 Sound Toggle Switch between the Tone Controls : Position 1-Will give you tones and sounds reminiscent of the“Byrds” Rickenbacker tone.
              Position 2-Will make all three pickups available at one time.                                                   5-way switchpickup selectionsYour 2 new selections: position 1Bridge pickup alonebridge + neck in parallel       position 2bridge + middle pickup in parallelall three pickups in parallel position 3middle pickup alone

 This guitar body has a very warm and crisp sound. It is built light and resonant for sustaining notes.
The  treble bleed circuit keeps it clear with a good strong signal all the way down. You can add extra bass with the tone controls.
The middle pickup is a RWRP which is wired like a humbucker in positions 2 and 4 on  the 5 way switch. Overall a great choice for many styles and genres. Because of it's very light weight, it is extremely and comfortable to play all night long.

The fingerboard, or playing surface of the guitar neck, is usually curved or radiused across its width. The purpose of this radius is to accommodate the natural ergonomic shape of your fingers when they are in playing position. Comfort is certainly a major factor in selecting a fingerboard radius but it is not the only factor. Musical Style... the fingerboard radius must also allow you to play the style of music you prefer.
