    It sounds better than I thought it would, the pickups really work together,

    This has a Toneshaper in it (that I got practically free with a loaded pickguard a decade ago) and I’ve tried it in many of its possible configurations including “neck on” via the second tone control...

    After having it in multiple Strats with multiple configurations in that time, it has landed here to stay... though the only features I’m currently using are 2nd tone to middle+bridge, treble bleed (volume kit), and .33uf caps (I like the response of the span of the Tone control best with this value). I found the that I was not really using the blender (neck on) enough to justify loosing the 2nd tone, and gave it up for the volume about three years back. I had a previous Tort guard with a switch, that I rewired a few times for S/P on the bridge (Duncan LS ‘59), and neck on... mine was a little closer to the pickup than yours (due to the placement of the toneshaper) and I kept activating it accidentally.

    You did a great job, I hope you enjoy it muchly!
