Stratocaster Wiring
Thanks for purchasing Tonerider Stratocaster
pickups. This guide provides wiring and installation information for all our TRS series Stratocaster
pickups.
Most Stratocaster guitars use a 5-way switch, and
we’ve included a large, easy-to-read diagram for
this standard configuration.

POLARITY
All our Strat pickups are wound with the following
polarity and winding direction:
- Neck and Bridge: North Pole Up / Clockwise Wind.
- Mid: South Pole Up / Counter-clockwise Wind
THE QUICK INSTALLATION GUIDE:
* Install the pickups into the pickguard cavities.
* The WHITE and YELLOW pickup wires from
the pickups should be soldered to the correct
lugs of the 5-way switch.
* The BLACK pickup wires should be soldered
to a ground point, normally the back of the
volume pot.
* Reinstall the pickguard and re-string the
guitar.
* Pressing the strings against the high frets, set
the pickup heights to 2.5mm from the strings
(neck and mid) and 2mm (bridge). This is only a
guide. The pickups can be adjusted further when
playing a good recording or live volume.

CAPACITOR & POTENTIOMETER VALUES
We design all our Stratocaster pickups to perform
with the most common potentiometer and capacitor
configurations - 250k Audio Pots and 0.047uf
capacitors. A 0.02uf capacitor will roll off less
high-end and is a good alternative.
