    Custom 7 WAY Wiring for Strat®// Gilmour Mod

    The new Obsidian® Custom 7 Way wiring harness for Stratocaster® has had a complete over hall, to make the super versatile 7 Way wiring mod even better. The new upgraded harness retains the '7-way' switching inspired by David Gilmour, but improves the tone control layout, smooths out the tone and volume control responses, and gives you two volume control 'voices' so you can get your guitar setup exactly how you like it.

    7-WAY STRAT SWITCH // GILMOUR MOD

    The sweetest bell like Strat® tone. Play your neck and bridge pickups together for the sweetest bell like tones, or even all three pickups together. The switch is built in to your tone control by use of a push/pull pot, so no extra mods are required to your guitar.

    'VOICE' SWITCHING

    Shape your volume control to your playing style. Match the function of your volume control to your playing style, with a 'Clear' mode and a 'Balanced' mode.

    'CLEAR' MODE - Crystal clear tone at any volume level
    'BALANCED' MODE - Roll off some highs with the volume control for a smooth transition between clean and crunch

    OBSIDIAN® LAYOUT

    Tone & volume controls that make sense. We have assigned 'Tone control 1' to the neck and middle pickups, leaving 'Tone control 2' as a dedicated bridge pickup tone control, for balancing the brighter treble in switch positions 1 & 2.

    Controls:

    Tone Control 1: Middle & Neck Pickup (Works in positions 2 - 5)
    Tone Control 2: Bridge Pickup (Works in positions 1 - 2)

    Custom "7 WAY" for Strat Gen 2 // Gilmour mod. SSS

    The presentation and the construction are exquisite and robust.
    Installation is easier if the pickup wires are made of plastic. If they are made of cotton, as in my case, it is a bit more laborious.
    Once installed, a very smooth and light volume control, very suitable to make the "violin sound". The tone 1 is also very soft, a little less than the volume control, but it is appreciated. Tone 2 is a little less soft than tone 1, which allows you to accurately calibrate the sound of the bridge pickup.
    The pickup selector is of great quality and stability, it doesn't have that small gap between changes that the standard one has, which is appreciated.
    The jack also improves on the standard in terms of smoothness when inserting and removing the plug, as well as in the construction and quality of the materials.
    Sound:
    The sound becomes more defined and punchy. Bass, treble and midrange are better appreciated and differentiated. It gains in punch.
    It can be said that the sound quality improves noticeably.
    To raise tone 2 in order to obtain the two additional sounds, the thumb, index and middle finger must be held firmly. It requires firmness which can be acquired with practice.
    The two additional sounds (bridge/neck) and (bridge, middle and neck) complete a sound configuration worth exploring because of their tonal nuances. For me personally P/M/M is the richest and most nuanced sound of a Strat.
    All in all, a must-have upgrade for a Stratocaster that takes the sound, functionality and handling to a higher level.
