The ObsidianWire HSH Wiring Harness for Fender® Stratocaster®, is the perfect way to open up your humbuckers with some extra clarity and output, while retaining that sweet single coil tone.
The trouble with a traditional wiring kit in a Strat® with humbuckers and single coils is that humbuckers need a good 500k potentiometer for full clarity and output, while the single coils need a 250k set of tone and volume controls to tame some of their natural highs.
ObsidianWire is the perfect solution with a special custom design allowing for auto switching between 500k tone and volume controls in the full humbucker positions, and 250k controls for the single coil positions.
The ObsidianWire HSH Wiring Harness
– Auto switch between 500k & 250k tone and volume controls
– 500k For the Humbuckers (Full Output & Clarity)
– 250k for the Single Coil (Traditional Strat Tone)
– Auto Split Humbuckers in Positions 2 + 4 (Perfect Strat Quack)
Furthermore, when you move your switch into the mixed pickup positions the humbucker coils split (requires four conductor humbuckers), with one of them pairing up with the middle pickup for traditional Strat tone.
The Custom HSH Controls:
1: Bridge Humbucker in Full Mode (500k controls // Rear tone control)
2: Bridge Humbucker in Split mode* + Middle Pickup (250k Controls // Front tone control)
3: Middle Pickup (250k Controls // Front tone control)
4: Neck Humbucker in Split mode* + Middle Pickup (250k Controls // Front tone control)
5: Neck Pickup (500k controls // Rear tone control)
* Coil Splitting Requires Four Conductor Neck + Bridge Pickups
Crystal Clear Tone
To make your tone crystal clear at lower volumes, there’s an ObsidianWire Custom Spec Treble Bleed Mod included in this package. 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.
