7 WAY STRAT WIRING / GILMOUR MOD

NECK & BRIDGE PICKUPS TOGETHER, OR ALL THREE

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. 

'7-Way' Gilmour Mod Wiring // Function

 THE BUILD

We have a small team of people that love crafting Pro-Wired Electronics and we take pride in producing the absolute best. We use custom specified parts, perfected techniques, and hand test to ensure that your harness will be an upgrade for your guitar, from factory model to custom shop.

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.
