Loaded pickguard – Series / Parallel switch & varitone for Stratocaster


Custom loaded pickguard for Stratocaster type guitar.
The Switch Parallel / series allows you to add three additional sounds to your guitar.
Parallel position delivers the five traditional pickup setting on a Stratocaster.
Series Position provides you get three additional combinations that turn single coils into humbuckers.
The overall volume in series is much more powerful. It is very interesting for clean jazz sound and fatter distortioned sounds.
The pickguard is loaded with MWHS type Wilkinson pickups. These pickups are very powerful and quiet.
The six position varitone offers excellent tone control and allows you to get all sound. From warm jazz sound to the most hardcore rock sound.
The pickguard was assembled with silver solder and shielded with copper foil.
Weird marks on the pickguard are due to flash reflection on the protective film …
