In my youth pretty much the only guitars available were shitty strat copies.
A man with a banjaxed korean squire was a king amongst plebs.
I then began to associate strats with middle aged blues-rock wank. Not for a funky monkey like the 20-something me.
This was despite my actually owning a strat (a half decent early chinese squier), which I sold for a pittance.

Having acquired another and frankly quite deadly if wrecked early chinese squire I have discovered/rediscovered how nice they can be.

I've come over to the strat side of the street

@Cornu Ammonis aha!
@moose yeah - I'm thinking of wiring the bridge and middle to tone controls, as that would give you hi cut on 4 out of the 5 positions that might require it most. or wire a master tone and do something else with that pot/hole. Generally play with everything on 10, but sometimes like to pull a bit of high end off the bridge

You can use the same tone control for two pickups too.

Of course there's super switches too but no one needs that sorta complication.

yeah - I rooted through my parts box there - think I'm going to stick in a series parallel switch, master vol, and turn the 2nd tone into a blend knob of some description. as with most of these types of mod, will give me X new tones, X-(X-1) of which will actually be useful.
