ST 3x Vol. 5x Tone Switch Solderless Prewired Vintage Kit STRATOCASTER

Absolutely perfect for all non-soldering iron owners, and anti-hobbyists who have so far been afraid to buy such a kit!

This Solderless Prewired Kit should be installable by anyone. We simply added a pre-wired push clamp terminal for the pickups and ground connections to our standard kit. The wires of the pickups etc. are simply plugged into the prewired terminals and the complete soldering work is eliminated. Due to the clearly arranged terminal row, it is almost impossible to wire something wrong, and the exchange should be relatively quick and easy even for inexperienced hobbyists. Except for the additional wiring terminal, the kit is absolutely identical to the standard soldering kit.


This kit is the most versatile Stratocaster prewired kit in our range. We have a separate volume control for each pickup. This makes it possible to mix all 3 pickups together at will. For example, you turn the neck pickup up fully, the middle to zero, and the bridge half blinded to the neck, or...

Since the switch is unnecessary, we have replaced it with an Oak Grigsby 5-way super switch, and converted to the 5x master tone switch. The switch switches the tone over 4 vintage carbon press resistors in 5 steps (0-25% -50% -75% -100%) with the same resistance curve as an audio taper pot. In combination with the 3 Volumepots the switching and control possibilities are virtually limitless!

The prewired kit is equipped with three treble bleed mods. The treble bleed allows you to use the volume pot over the entire bandwidth without losing the treble. 

The circuit was designed by us, and there is so only with us to buy!

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.
