The rather sparse WordPress page you see before you is the new front-end of my personal web site. This is always a work in progress!

Mostly I write here about hobby projects I am working on or have completed, partly as an aide-memoire to myself and partly because sometimes the information is useful to others trying to do similar things.

The blog I wrote covering my time with British Antarctic Survey can be found here.

    Have to replace the 5 way on my HH Godin LGXT (which was replaced by the good folks at the no defunct Fender Custom shop Nashville, with a strat style 5 way.) Want go back to OEM to get original configuration: 1= Neck 2= single coil (nearest to neck)3= both neck and bridge full pu
    4= bridge single coil (nearest bridge) 5= Full bridge pu The folks at Godin want to charge me $30 plus shipping for the import. Can I get the OEM configuration with the Strat 5way or is there a less expensive import alternative. The current wiring was a quess on the part of the folks at fender since at the time they nor I had a clue. Pls advise

    • Hi Mose, not sure to be honest. Looking at the default pickup selections you can’t get that without some clever switch trickery – I think your best bet is to throw yourself on the mercy of Godin!

      • Thanks
        Going to leave it in the capable hands of Joe Glaser in Nashville seems there’s a Fender 5 way stacked switch that can handle the redo

  2. I was looking at this article. It is very informative. I installed a set of Fishman Fluence Single width pickups (Strat pickups) in my Warmoth Strat recently and the only way that I could get them to work was to use a 5 way switch (I had mini toggles in the original setup) because the Fluence use both sides of the 5 way switch separately. I ended up using a push/pull pot to turn on the Bridge pickup to get additional pickup combinations, but I would like to use mini toggles again. Can you steer me in the right direction to use mini toggles and what type I would need to use? I’m thinking I would probably have to use DPDT to get the same wiring scheme as using the 5 way switch.
