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 volume control to keep the highs from leaving your tone as the volume is decreased.
By adding this circuit, we can help you avoid a “muddy-tone”.
Now your tone is much more controllable, clear 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. This variable treble bleed circuit is pre-installed. This variable treble bleed/bypass circuit corrects the problem of high frequency losses and provides auto-adjustment of tone at reduced volumes and improves audio taper between 1 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, Indonesia (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, done!

Haywire Recessed Heel Crest added for:

Improved hand access

Faster playing and more room on the neck

Easier and smoother note bending

Less stress on fingering hand

Cleaner, clearer notes

More responsive hand-tapping

Easier sweep arpeggios

Better trills and hammer-ons

Quicker pull-offs

You have two choices now missing on your stock Strat.
Here’s what you’ll get after we added the 7 Sound Toggle Switch between the Tone Controls:

USA-Custom Shop 7 Sound Switch Translation:

NORMAL Position 1 of the 5-way pickup selector switch activates the bridge pickup alone by engaging the toggle switch at this point it 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 choices now missing on a stock Strat.

 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 to 1. 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 its very light weight, it is extremely and comfortable to play all night long.
