Overview of the
Triple Threat project....
Another one of our own custom
built Strat's® that offers a
total of 22 different pickup selections via 3 uniquely recessed mini-toggle
switches. Classic Strat® tone as it's
loaded with top quality Seymour Duncan pickups
throughout. From a screaming hot tapped bridge
pickup to true vintage middle and neck pickups.
Pickup Mod Switch 1: A
SPDT mini-toggle switch toggles between
the tapped portion of Seymour Duncan SSL-5T bridge
pickup or full output. Switch position up gives
you full pickup output,
switch position down is the tapped portion of
the pickup winding or lower output level.
Pickup Mod Switch 2: A
SPDT mini-toggle switch toggles
off the neck pickup no matter what position the
5-way pickup selector switch is in. This
you two more pickup selection options from the
standard 5. Same as
our Gilmour Black Strat® modification.
Pickup Mod Switch 3: "Direct
Through Mod". A DPDT mini-toggle
switch. With this switch activated
the output from the pickups is passed directly to
the output jack bypassing the volume
and tone potentiometers and eliminating any of
attenuation. Allows the full flavor,
output and character of the pickup to be sent to
Duncan SSL-5T (Tapped for dual output
Duncan SSL-1 Rw/Rp (Reverse wound/reverse
polarity for hum canceling when the 5-way pickup
selection switch is in positions 2 and 4.
Neck: Seymour Duncan
Neck: Fender® USA
22 fret 1999 vintage maple neck that is in
superb near mint condition.
Body: Is a excellent condition
reissue Jupiter blue MIJ Strat® body. It is a wonderful blue metallic
body that looks great with the white pickguard
along with the aged white accessories and the maple
neck. The colors and tones of entire
guitar complement each other nicely. The control
cavity of this body has been fully shielded with
conductive shielding paint. The metallic paint
characteristic of the body does not come through
in the photographs for some reason, it basically
looks like a solid blue color. The blue color in
the photographs looks lighter than it actually
is, it has a darker hue to the color.

string and mounting spacing. Includes our own
