The EGW Kentucky Straight

My goal was to wire for every possible pickup combination (except solo middle), as well as preserving the traditional strat sounds and simplifying tone controls… and adds some flare.

- replace the 5 way with a 3-way and control the neck and bridge like any two pickup guitar.

- reduce controls down to 1 V and 1 T

- middle pickup is activated by pulling the V pot

- adding SDJB and activating coil split by pulling T pot

- shifting volume and tone to last two positions and adding a kill switch in volume position. This puts the kill in an accessible spot and reduces unintended volume knob interference (sorry swellers 🤷‍♂️)
