Obsidian Wire Unveils the Custom 7 Way for Strat

A pre-wired switching system that gives even more options to a standard Strat-style setup.

Christchurch, New Zealand (December 3, 2019) -- ObsidianWire releases a new line of Pro-Wired electronics for Stratocaster with an easy install 7-way switching system.

The ObsidianWire Custom 7 Way for Strat adds a Gilmour-style switch to play your neck and bridge pickups together, & even allows you to play all three pickups at once, for the sweetest bell-like Strat sounds possible.

To allow for the easiest install possible, ObsidianWire has added the neck pickup ‘ON’ switch to the second control. Just pull it up, and the neck pickup will be switched ON. Press it down again and the harness will be returned to a traditional style setup.

As an additional bonus, all ObsidianWire Pro-Wired Electronics come with solder-less Plug, Play & Enjoy connectors for solder-less install & pickup changes.


  • 7-Way Switching – Play your neck & bridge pickups together, or all three at once.
  • Solder-less Install & Pickup Changes – Makes install & pickup changes fast and super easy
  • Direct Fit for Fender Stratocaster (And Squier Strat with some adjustment)
  • Hand Selected & Matched Components – Greater clarity and consistent response

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
