Talk recently of the 4-way switch tele with series wiring got me interested in trying to do this with a strat. Normally in the 2 and 4 positions on a strat the pickups are in parallel and have that thin sound. Series wiring is closer to what a true humbucker is like. I looked around for some wiring diagrams and I couldn't find anything. So I made a few of my own.

This one is for a 3-way switch, keeping it real simple and just giving you the 3 most useful positions. You could also use this wiring with a 5-way; the 2 position would be bridge and neck in parallel and the 4 position would be another neck position.


This one is for a 4-way switch. It gives you all the options I think most people would want. Unless you're a bridge humbucker kinda guy in which case you would have to switch it around, wiring the neck like the bridge and the bridge like the neck.


Another 4-way switch option that makes the strat work more like a 2 humbucker guitar at the two outer positions and 2 single coils in the center positions.
