    Default 47 different pickup tones of the Stratocaster

    Many of us sometime dreams to change Strat sound without change of recent pickup set. It' possible to find out a lot of soldering scheme how to wire and get some particular sound. Here is fun and interesting "view at kill"...

    Way too many switches for me, and I am creeped out by videos where the voice is not that of a human or any other creature that occurs in nature. But, an interesting and ambitious concept from folks who know their electronics!

    That is way overkill!

    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.

    I've seen some other YouTube videos with this computerized sound to them. Sounds very sterile.
    I'm not sayin' that, I'm just sayin'......

    They put a man on the moon with less switches than that!

    You know, said Arthur, its at times like this, when Im trapped in a Vogon airlock with a man from Betelgeuse, and about to die of asphyxiation in deep space that I really wish Id listened to what my mother told me when I was young.
    Why, what did she tell you?
    I dont know, I didnt listen.

    Just my particular OCD - don't mind me. Keep moving along, nothing to see here.

    On the switches front, I couldn't cope with all those and what would the guitar look like? I can just about manage the S1 switch on my strat, which has the advantage of being discrete and so not spoiling the aesthetic.

    ...the video is proof that Stratocaster is really versatile guitar.
    This solution is complex and ugly, but certain methods of wiring may be interesting for someone ... shame that for every way of wiring there is no sound sample
