Today I got up and thought "I'm gonna mod my crappy old strat copy."

So I did. I've added a 'neck-on' switch, moved the middle tone control to the bridge pickup, and swapped the middle pickup wires (by the way, what is this actually doing?).

It sounds loads better, especially the middle pickup, which I never really used before.
The weird thing is that when I have it in positions 2 or 4, it adds an octave above, in a subtle way, like an Octavia, where it's only really noticeable on some notes.

What I want to know is why? I don't want to get rid of it, it sounds great, but why does it happen?

EDIT: Right, I've put up a crappy clip in my profile, line-in to the computer, with no effects added. Not great playing, but you can hear the octave.

It's the one called 'test' in my profile.

Might be emphasizing a harmonic. Its just one of the overtones coming out stronger, which probably has to do with the rewire.
it's all just coming back

it's all coming back to me

For positions 2 and 4, it's just stock but with the ground and hot wires of the middle pickup reversed. The other stuff doesn't affect it.

And yeah, it is awesome!
