I got a pretty cool last night and was wondering as to how you check what type of configuration you have on a Strat type guitar. Do you just remove the pickguard or is there something else to be done? Thanks in advance!
Just take the pickguard off to check the routing. What model and year is it? If it's a popular one some people on here might know from experience.
you can lightly touch the pickups pole pieces with a screwdriver. If you hear the tap through your amp, the pickup is on. If you don't hear the tap, that means the pickup is off.
Now I'm confused. I thought the question was how it was routed, as in would it fit HSH or whatnot. Now I see you may have meant something else, in which case ^he's right.
