Status: Under development
I have a preCBS 64 Fender Strat some what prept. As I modify the electronics
I will pay extreme detail as I did the last time that I opened her up for surgery.
The last time I installed Lace pickup's, completely rewired the switch, used same
vintage 3 way switch. No modes to faceplate, no digital or active parts.
I set up the switch bridge pickup, middle & neck pickup, neck pickup. The
bridge pickup, a Red Lace for lead, the middle and neck pickups, Blue Lace for
Blues & Rythme. I used TBXdualpots and set the blue pickups out of phase
in such a way so as to trim w/ phase. It's a little complicated, I aslo made it so
that the tone controller could do CV control in passive from the 2nd pot of the
TBXpot that phased. TBXes can cutoff/on at half turn. Used a standard RTS jack.
Yes it wierd, it worked perfect, I learned that simple passive designs can be very
powerfull and are an elegant form of beaty. The possible series, parallel and
series~parallel with 3 pickup two colors can make you want toggles. Most
combinations acheive simular results so instead I kept original dualpole triple throw,
and worked it to acheive a little more than stanard tone setup, preserving vintage
style while extrating tambres not completely vintage. So this is my platform.
