Super-Light Guitar by Haywire

Haywire Custom Guitars

“Building satisfied players one Haywire Custom guitar at a time! “Great Tone and Sustain with lots of resonance

Modified+ SRV Pickups Included 5 Way Switching includes-3 Single Coil and 2 Humbucking Modes!


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 a “muddy-tone” syndrome.
Your tone is now 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 clear, clean audio taper highs between 1 and 10 on the volume control.


Feather-Light or Super Light

We hear you.

THIS Super-Light Guitar HAS A WORKING BRIDGE TONE CONTROL for better guitar tone!

In MOST Fender Stratocaster guitars the tone control doesn’t work for the bridge-only pickup selection on the 5-way selector switch.

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, Fender Indonesia, 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 since then, 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! We got it covered.

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

USA-Custom Shop 7 Sound switch Translation. Here’s what you’ll get after we added the 7 Sound Toggle Switch between the Tone Controls:
On this Feather-Light 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 2 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 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.
(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

 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.
