The pickups appear to be import pickups which are decently wound. The middle is reverse wound, of course... As for the rest of the mods... All of the controls are push/pull pots.
Each one has a value of 500K. The volume is a linear B500K push pull pot which doubles as a treble boost cut switch (which cuts out the highs and produces a mellower/jazzier sort of sound from the pickups).This switch is wired to a 0.01uF capacitor which produces the effect and also has a 0.001uF treble bleed cap wired to its lugs for better volume roll off. You can basically roll the dial all the way down to the lowest levels and still manage to hear the output whereas a stock wired volume control will usually cut out at around 3 or 4 on the dial.
Middle + bridge, and/or neck + middle. Turning this switch on in position 3 is exactly the same as position 4 i. Neck + middle but the upshot here is that you can use this switch together with the reverse phase switch in this position if you'd like to...Technically it's the same as position 4, but either way works. Both of the tone controls are audio 500K pots i. A500K and the first tone control has a. 047uF Orange Sprague capacitor for dark mellow sounds, while the second tone control has a. 022uF Orange Sprague cap for brighter tone.
Then there's a couple of switches located just above the five way blade switch. The first switch on the left, located nearest to the momentary kill button is an SPDT on/on switch; which in this case is an on/off switch that serves as a bypass for the momentary kill effect. Basically, it's an on/off switch for temporary off button. Position 1 (stock bridge only) - bridge in series with neck Position 2 (stock middle & bridge) - bridge and middle in parallel, in series with neck Position 3 (stock middle only) - middle in series with neck Position 4 (stock neck & middle) - neck Position 5 (neck only) - neck I'm not exactly sure what the make and model of this Squier strat body is, but judging from the look of the tremolo saddles, I'd guess that it was a classic vibe, yet I could be wrong.
I'm also not sure of what kind of wood it is... It could be either alder or basswood.
The body has a weight of 5 lbs. And the neck pocket appears to have been widened slightly at the factory. Normally these neck widths are 2 & 3/16" wide, but this particular neck pocket measures 2 & 1/4" wide. A better tremolo arm should be sought out to replace this one, which is obviously not the one that originally came with it, or was designed for it. There is also a noticeable slight scratch on the chrome end of the bridge plate where the arm goes into.As mentioned before, no neck plate is available for this project body, hence the reason why I'm classifying it as a partially loaded body. All the cavities have been shielded with metallic tape and small sections of overlaid copper tape are used to solder the separate cavities together.
The same goes for the underside of the pickguard which has a small strip of copper tape with a terminal ring lug soldered onto it for optimal ground continuity. A white back plate with the original white screws are also included and a pair of import Schaller style strap locks have been added to body as well. These strap locks may have a slight touch of oxidation on them, but they will still work as intended. Check out my other listings. With a suitable enough explanation for the delay.The only exception to that rule is if. From the post office on a Monday; the next. And the only other delay. Would be on a holiday when the post office.
