The switch looks a little different than what I expected. Usually Fender switches have the visible spring on one side. This one was a little different. Still, just fine. The diagram was perfect. Had the guitar completely rewired in a very short time, with a st of Warman pickups. Works perfectly.

First Wiring Job

Rewired my MIM Strat with this kit. This was the first time I wired a guitar from the pick guard up. I used Lace Sensors and a three way switch to split up the bridge dually. Didn't plan on rewiring it when I bought it but I thought it would be a waste to replace the pickups and keep the MIM wiring. The guitar sounds great and the three way switch for the bridge dually adds to the versatility of the guitar.

I can buy these anywhere, but I only buy them at StewMac. For me, they provide the quality that I want for my guitars. If it isn't available here, I build it from parts purchased here.
