Stratocaster (and HSS) Wiring Diagram
Stratocaster Wiring Explained:
The installation of any set of Stratocaster style single coil pickups is quite straightforward for anyone with some basic soldering skills. There are only 6 connections to make and its very easy to test the installation prior to re-assembly (and re-stringing) with no more than your normal amplifier and a small screwdriver. The following Stratocaster (and HSS) wiring diagram gives a diagrammatic representation of a generic Stratocaster configuration.
If you have any technical questions, or need further information regarding the Stratocaster wiring diagram, please do not hesitate to contact support at Ironstone. Also included here is an HSS Strat configuration based on Ironstone's own humbucker bridge. See also the Ironstone support page;
