HH Stratocaster Blacktop Wiring Harness

HH Stratocaster Blacktop 2x Humbucker Wiring Harness

This Prewired Kit fits into all HH-Strats with two splitable humbuckers. Some know the circuit from the Blacktop Strat. In position two and four both humbuckers are splitted, so that either the two inner or the two outer coils are active. The sound reminds to a Tele. This results in many new application possibilities. The other three positions are all unsplit, Neck, Neck/Bridge, Bridge. This kit works as described only in combination with splitable humbucker.


Switch assignment:


Position 1 - Neck Humbucker
Position 2 - Neck inner coil / Bridge inner coil
Position 3 - Neck Humbucker / Bridge Humbucker
Position 4- Neck outer coil / Bridge outer coil (Tele-sound)
Position 5 - Bridge Humbucker

Why a Prewired HArness from Arty's Custom Guitars?



All our prewired kits have matched pots and caps. This means that we measure all potentiometers and capacitors before installation, select them, and use them according to their values where they deliver the best possible result in combination with the pickups. This is important because original pots have tolerances of up to +-20%. In extreme cases, a 500k pot can have values of only 400k or up to 600k ohms. Not infrequently good pickups are replaced unnecessarily, because they sound muddy, weak or thin. In reality, however, the problem is often not due to bad pickups, but simply to inferior wiring, which mercilessly destroys the actually perfect sound.

We compared enormous quantities of capacitors in interaction with various pickups and thus determined the most suitable tone caps under real conditions. The capacitors are hand-selected HQ film capacitors with very low tolerance, very similar in design to the originals from the fifties. The vintage paper wax skin gives the caps an additional look. Our capacitors are so close to the originals of the 50's that nobody will hear a difference.

In all our kits only the best components from well-known manufacturers like CTS, Switchcraft, CRL or Oak Grigsby are used. All kits are carefully manufactured in small quantities and professionally handcrafted, and delivered to satisfied customers all over the world.
