Alternatively, any boutique pickup maker should have no problem winding a RWRP Strat neck pickup for you.
But be sure to have the bridge pickup specs at hand when chasing a RWRP mate for it.
You can enhance these three configurations with additional mods, such as out-of-phase or series/parallel switching.
We’ll examine these wiring options in future columns.
My friend Magnus Plaue, one of the biggest DIY nerds I know, has written a nice essay about this operation.
First, some background: Phase difference is measured in degrees.
Totally in-phase signals have either 0 or 360 degrees of difference (the latter is equivalent to none).
Otherwise you might wind up with an out-of-phase tone or simply not get the hum-cancelling benefit in position 2.
Now, as you might have guessed, there’s a size consideration: A Stratocaster pickup is slightly bigger than a standard Telecaster neck pickup, so to make the former fit it’s necessary to enlarge the body routing and pickguard hole.
