Introducing the Jimi Hendrix drop-in deluxe wiring harness
Replica of the wiring found in the mid '60s - late '70s , including Jimi's famous white Strat
This configuration is identical to that used in Jimi's own White Strat, although our is the right handed version! We use parts of the highest quality for these harnesses. They are built utilising Eric Johnsons "floating wire" technique to reduce hum and other interference.
Contents of the Jimi Hendrix Wiring Harness Kit

3 x CTS vintage dimple back Audio Taper pots (250K)
1 x Genuine Sprague ceramic disc capacitor (0.1uf)
Vintage cloth covered wire (USA Made)
1 x Mono output jack socket
All siver soldered throughout and fitted to a genuine Fender control shield (helps reduce hum, and eliminates the need for the 3 point wiring to the back of the pots). Supplied with easy to follow wiring diagram
Hand built in the UK
The kit is assembled by us here in the UK using high quality silver solder and USA made vintage cloth push-back wire. We even solder the output jack so the whole thing is ready to drop-in.
As the kit is fitted to a Fender control shield there’s no need to dis-assemble the parts to fit them to your scratchplate. Simply add the whole thing to the underside of your scratchplate and it’s done!

Anyone got a match?
Jimi would remove the spring from the switch and wedge the selector between postions with a matchstick to get that 2 pickup sound that is now synonomous with all strats. Obviously the incorporation of the 5-way switch made this wedging of the switch unneccessary.
Please note: These control plates are in built to order by us here in the UK so please allow 48 hours for us to assemble and despatch your order.
Very well made product using top grade components, don't know why they solder the jack though ? Maybe i'm missing something but i had to take it off and resolder it once i'd passed the wires through the appropraite hole to fit in the jack cavity, otherwise great job, can't find fault.Would be nice if they offered a version with jump wire for tone on the bridge pickup but then it wouldn't be jimi i suppose, just a thought.Great work !
