How to wire or rewire a Fender Strat.

In this video I wire up a new scratch plate with all new components. This is as a result of the limited tones available on the Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster. The 3 way pickup selector switch and the week DeMarzio pickups leave the guitar with a serious lack of the sort tonal variations I use to write music, so I completely rewire the guitar so it better suits my needs.

The results are great and I can now get from light almost electro-acoustic tones right the way through to a descent drive on an 80s distortion. I will be posting a PDF of this tutorial and the circuit diagrams if anyone is interested.
