Super Easy Install

 

All ObsidianWire Pro-Wired Electronics are super easy to install, and allow for solder-less pickup changes with ObsidianWire Plug, Play & Enjoy connectors.

 

Neck & Bridge Pickups Together

 

The ObsidianWire Custom '7 Way' for Strat® wiring harness adds a 'Gilmour' style switch to mix your neck pickup into the bridge switch position, & even allows you to play all three pickup together, for the sweetest bell like Strat® sounds possible.

The '7 Way' set maintains all of your traditional Stratocaster® sounds with a traditional 5-way switch, volume control and two tone controls, but adds an additional switch for adding the neck pickup into the first three positions of the switch when required.

To keep things tidy and allow for the easiest install possible, we added the neck pickup switch to the second control. Just pull it up and the neck pickup will be switched ON. Press it down again and the harness will be returned to a traditional style setup.

Crystal Clear Tone

 

To make your tone crystal clear at lower volumes we also include an ObsidianWire Custom Spec Treble Bleed Mod. This prevents tone 'muddiness' at low volumes by allowing high frequencies to pass along a separate path to your amp, rather than being stopped short by the increasing resistance at the volume control.

50's strat kit

I installed this in MIM strat with Seymour Duncan SSL1's. The easiest install ever. Fits perfectly, looks very clean and professional (almost custom shop like) when pickguard is removed. Sounds awesome. Switch and pots are very smooth and feel great. Not sure why this is not being used in every mid to high end guitar.

Strat 7 way harness

Received and installed in a custom build Strat yesterday. Absolutely thrilled with the results. This is my second harness purchase. I put a HSS harness in a Strat rebuild. Same results. Awesome. Thanks Mathew.
