 “Building satisfied players one Haywire Custom guitar at a time! “This guitar has great tone and Sustain with lots of resonance

It’s Modified with: 1) SRV Pickups Included 7 Way Switching includes-3 Single Coil and 2 Humbucking Modes and more….!
Get any and every possible pickup combination you can think of!

2) 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 input and output of 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 the “muddy-tone” syndrome.
Now your tone is much more controllable and articulate!

When the Haywire Custom 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 has been pre-installed. This variable treble bleed/bypass circuit corrects the problem of high frequency losses, provides auto-adjustment of tone at reduced volumes and improves audio taper between 1 and 10.

We hear you:

THIS GUITAR HAS A WORKING BRIDGE TONE CONTROL !

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 (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.

Why?

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!

Recessed Heel Crest added for:

  • Faster playing neck
  • Improved access and hand comfort
  • Smoother note bending
  • Easier play with less stress on fingering hand
  • Cleaner, sharper notes
  • Improved, responsive hand-tapping
  • Effortless sweep arpeggios
  • Excellent for trills and hammer-ons
  • High-Speed pull-offs

USA-Custom Shop 7 Sound Stratocaster Switch Translation:

NORMAL Position 1 of the 5-way 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 currently missing on a Fender Strat.
5-way switch pickup selections PLUS Your 2 new selections:
The quick Run-Down: Here’s what you’ll get after we added the 7 Sound Toggle Switch between the Tone Controls :
(toggle ON for the first two selections as follows:)
Toggle ON Position 1-Will give you tones and sounds reminiscent of the“Byrds” Rickenbacker tone.

Toggle ON Position 2-Will make all three pickups available at one time.

 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. 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 it’s very light weight, it is extremely and comfortable to play all night long.
