Basically, how does it sound if you combine the neck and middle, or the bridge and middle in series instead of in parallel? I've heard it sounds alot closer to a Les Paul kind of sound. Is this right?

i believe it is pretty difficult to wire a strat with series wiring, using the 5-way switch. i think it's still hard using three individual switches too. i guess you can short the unused pickup with a switch, make the negative (-) of the bridge pickup go to ground and stuff. but that's pretty complicated.


if ur just asking how it sounds, i do not know or have i tried it.

It definitely makes it sound a lot thicker, not quite as thick as an LP though. I'm just basing this on the S-1 switching, so I can't tell you how it would be to physically wire it in.

ok good to know.

Yes its a similar idea to a couple of the positions on the S-1 switch, which I unfortunately havent played with in a while
