Fantastic! Would buy again!

I bought this for a 2000 Mexican Strat I was having troubles with. Long story short the pickups in it sucked. I bought this kit and used 3 single coils from a Squire Mini Strat that I had and now the Mexican Strat sounds great! I did use vintage cloth wire though, I'm sure that didn't affect the sound too much. THE ONLY THING I WOULD RECOMMEND is that you get some electrical contact cleaner for the alpha pots because mine had a slight metal scraping sound when I got them, this didn't affect the sound of the guitar plugged in though, it still sounds fine. The contact cleaner just smoothed the feel out a bit.

Rewired an older Squier Stratocaster

Very good parts, easy install. Guitar is now like new. Had to remove some wood in the control cavities due to larger size of pots than original.

Modern Strat Wiring Kit

By

Verified Buyer


It was never my intention to use all of the parts in this kit. But in the end only the pots and the jack remain in my guitar. The 5 way switch failed after only 2 weeks. First the neck pickup position became intermittent and a couple of days later all positions followed.

Did the trick

Tossed this in a heavily modified mid eighties squeir bullet. Not the greatest stuff, but still very good. Was slightly short on wire but thats probably because it wasn't a true strat I was working on.
