I have almost completed a double neck strat project and am at the stage of wiring it up. I have searched the interwebz pretty carefully and have not been able to turn up a wiring diagram for this guitar. 200 or so were built in the 90's by Fender japan. Ive seen a couple of vids with Mr Malmsteen using his but only playing the 6 string.
The two necks apparently are controlled by a blend pot below the bridge of the top neck [12 string]. I am resigned at this point to use a 3pdt switch to rout either 12 or 6 string direct to the standard strat controls. Perhaps a super switch was used who knows but I cant for the life of me figure out how it would work.
Yep it is a mad project for sure. It is a big and quite heavy guitar which uses Dimarzio Area 58's in the bridge positions and Area 61's in the other 4 slots.
If any one has access to the original wiring diagram or has any suggestions as to how it should be wired your contribution would be greatly appreciated.
Are we sure the 12-string pot isn't a later addition? It seems a bit odd, it would imply that you'd never be able to turn off either neck completely.
I have no clue what the original wiring would be. What type of switch is in there now? I can visualize it much easier with a superswitch- if it doesn't have one, I'm having trouble visualizing how the tone pots would be wired into the circuit.
