AxeWerks Guitar is a video-only podcast that will focus on building, repairing, and modifying electric guitars and related equipment.
The first episode will be mostly about how to wire a standard Fender Stratocaster, using this ‘vintage recreation’ from my personal collection as an example.
If you’re interested in doing the homework with the show, here are a list of parts used, and where you can get a good deal on them.
All parts are identical to ones used on the actual guitar we’ll be building, except the pickguard (which is custom) and the pickups. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on an actual set of Fender ’57 handwound pickups, but the Custom Shop recreations listed below are a reasonable (and affordable) alternative.
Fender Original 250k Splitshaft Potentiometer
Fender Original ’57/’62 Stratocaster Pickups
Fender 5-way Selector Switch
Fender Strat Knobs
Fender Pickguard Screws
Fender American Standard Strat 11-Hole Pickguard
