7 Way Switching includes-3 Single Coil and 2 Humbucking Modes.

Variable Treble Bleed Circuit included: keeps the tone you have on “10” throughout the entire range of the volume control circuit.

Added to output of the volume control to keep the highs from leaving your tone when 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 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, 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 (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.

New from the Haywire Custom Guitars-Custom Shop

USA-Custom Shop 7 Sound Switch Translation:

On this guitar you’ll 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 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.
5-way switch pickup selections PLUS Your 2 new toggle 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.
(Toggle off for following normal switch controls as follows:)                                                              
position 1 Bridge pickup alone bridge + neck in parallel  
position 2 bridge + middle pickup in parallel all three pickups in parallel
position 3 middle pickup alone

Surf Green Guitar

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

Q-With The Treble Bleed modification installed:
How does it work?

A-It allows you to roll off your volume without losing the highs.
Would you like being able to use the volume control… without sacrificing tone?
Now You Can… with a Treble Bleed Circuit Mod added on this guitar!

As you turn your guitar’s volume down, the pot allows some of the current to go to ground as opposed to the output.

The frequencies that leave first are the highs, which leave the tone muddy and obscured without an “edge” on it to a discerning ear.

You can avoid this by using our: Haywire Treble Bleed Circuit

When you lower your guitar’s Volume control so does your tone’s clarity. Your tone is now muddy & with too much bass. By adding a Haywire Treble Bleed Circuit to your Volume Control Pot, your guitar will “Bleed” in more Treble as you turn your volume down.
Now you have much cleaner, articulate tones when rolling down the volume control.

Surf Green Guitar Mods………..

  This circuit allows the treble frequencies to be re-introduced into the output for clarity and improved timbre. At Haywire we simply install a TB Circuit capacitor. We build them in our custom guitars for a better Low and High sound spectrum:

1-error-correction of signals with enhanced clarity

2- preserve high end frequencies

3-improved taper when rolling back your volume control
