Like where can i find the parts to do it and where can i find info on HOW to do it. I just upgraded my strat from 3 single coil pu's to double humbucker and a single coil sounds really sweet..But i wanna hook it up so i can run it into the effects before it hits the volume. Please help!
Waldo's post that followed yours is as good of an answer as I could give to any of the above. The dozin page provides a detailed schematic on the wiring.
My strat went thru several phases and was basically an ugly hack job for a long time. My friend felt sorry for me and carved a sweet pickup surround for me out of some ebony scraps he'd been crafting cool little things out of.
What I would add is that EMG also makes a UGB called the JG-2. That's what's in the yellow strat and it's not a listed product that they keep in stock- they make them to order, but you have to go through an authorized EMG dealer. I like that the JG-2 is about half the size of the CB-1, which may have made a difference in for fitting it into the strat's small control cavity (given how I also crammed the loop jack into the same space instead of routing for it.)
Looks like some more posts got ensucted over the weekend, but now editing is possible everywhere...
