What is it?

Hand-wired Eric Johnson stratocaster wiring harness upgrade for American or Mexican Fender Stratocasters.  The Eric Johnson wiring has 3 main differences when compared to standard strat wiring.

-The .1uf capacitor has a wider affect on the the high end and mid frequencies.  When the tone is all the way up on 10 you will notice the sound is a little warmer and with slightly rounded off highs.  The tone control has a smooth taper when rolling back on the tone.  When the tone is almost all the way rolled back it produces a warm, creamy, fuzz tone.  The .1uf cap was originally used in old teles to try to emulate a bass guitar tone.  Fender started using them in some strats in the mid 50's.

-The 300k volume pot is slightly brighter than a 250k.  This helps balance and bring back some of the highs that are naturally lost by using the .1uf cap.

-The middle tone controls the neck pickup and the bottom tone controls the bridge.  There is no tone control for the middle pickup.  This helps bring more clarity to the 2 and 4 positions.

Hand wired with the highest quality parts and cleanest solder connections from a professional guitar tech.
