SSS Custom Stratocaster 9 Way Switching – Half Out-Of-Phase Option & VariTone – Wilkinson Pickups & Case

390.00

This Stratocaster is a unique model, featuring a 9 way switching and Half Out-Of-Phase option.

The 9 way option is interesting and opens up the sound of the Stratocaster while still using a regular 5 ways selector.

The second switch turns the middle pickup Half Out-Of-Phase. It’s a much better alternative for single coil. The standard out-of-phase option is too thin and loses too much volume. It is a weak setting for single coil pickups.

The 6 positions varitone offers a great deal of tones to vary the sound from jazzy to high pitched rock and roll.

The Half out of phase approximates the sound of a Telecaster. The sound is less slamming.

Varitone 6 position

Here are the six values of these capacitors.

  • Direct through

Vibrato is settled as standard downward position. I can adjust it in floating position if you wish.
I am a specialist to adjust traditional Fender vibrato in floating position without the guitar goes out of tune. The setting is entirely different, and I have to change the height of strings and intonation. So please tell me your vibrato setting choice when ordering.
