Here is an example of the HHH (Rosebud) configuration. This one was mis-shipped (I hope not mis-ordered, as I just found the mistake 3 minutes ago) for Czyfingers.
You will notice:
a) the bridge pickup
moves back approximately 11/32" toward the bridge.
b) the middle pickup
approximately 9/16" toward the bridge.
c) and the neck pickup
approximately 1-1/16" toward the bridge.
When I reorder Czyfinger'z pickguard, I also order a stock HHS (Tiger) and an SSS. Sorry…didn't have the others stocked.
Needless to say the changes are significant. Based on a thread from last year (from Mr. Wald & others) I believe that one of the most significant changes is that it pulls the neck pickup
off the node. I have built some Tiger-ized Strats, and this by far is (to me) the coolest change. That neck SDS-1 has very different & more detailed tonal qualities in this position. I also believe compacting the humbuckers adds punch and definition, but that is more of a subjective qualifier.
I originally contacted Waldo on this, because I was already wanting an inexpensive control cover. If you're building a modified Strat, this pickguard mod is a lifesaver. There are a zillion wires in the Tiger/Rosebud mod, and this streamlines the process tremendously.
If anyone would like to add pickup
spacing changes for Wolf-erized Strat with the SSS configuration here are the criterion. Please measure your Wolf very carefully from the back of the nut to the center of each pickup
. Ideally, I get measurements from a ScarletFire, a Moriarty, and other renditions as well. Unless of course one of you'all are the actually owner of Wolf. That would actually be ideal!!
I do sell these, but I don't mark them up. All info was a collaboration between Waldo & I, and was nothing I invented. They come from WD Music. Unfortunately they won't drop-ship, and they'll only ship to me as I paid to have the design templates made. They have most colors, and I'm happy to broker a custom pickguard for anyone who wants one. There is shipping from them, and shipping to you. Every color combination has a slightly different cost. Red tortoise seems the most expensive (so far), and this cream colored was the second most at $24.95. I think white/black/white are about $9.95 at last order.
Peace to all. Please excuse the promotional aspect. Since it's non-profit….
