Gilmour Scratchplate Specifications
The Ironstone custom assembly features a set of common Gilmour Scratchplate Pickguard Specifications, coupled with a number of colour choice options.
Gilmour Scratchplate Specifications: The 'Black Strat' Scratchplate / Pickguard
Supplied with a generous length of (pre-tinned) shielded jack socket and bridge earth connection leads for your ease of connection. Particular attention has gone into the wiring layout to eliminate the common Strat earth loops and the use of a ‘star’ earth connection arrangement at the volume control. All this helps reduce background noise and earth loop hum for your final guitar assembly (this works best if you shield the main guitar body cavity with foil too to form a complete shield environment for the pup's and controls).
Moving the toggle switch 'backwards' towards the bridge adds the bridge in series (i.e. a higher output similar to a humbucker) to the normal 5 way switch selection, giving extra combinations of; bridge and middle in series, middle and neck in parallel, both in series with the bridge, and finally bridge and neck in series.
