Been awhile since I posted a new build. This one turned out great and its breaking in nicely. It has the Kluson harmonica bridge and tailpiece. In past builds I have used wraparound bridges. The wraparound bridges have solid fundamentals and thicker overall tone. The Kluson in comparison is brighter and more expressive. I cheated on the electronics a little (usually build my own board) and used a Wald TPC with the adjustable gain. Awesome product/tone and wouldn't hesitate to order another.

Thanks for the comments all.

tcsned. I wanted straight string pull which helps with tuning stability and that's how it kind of evolved.

tdcrjeff. They are really straight forward when you get used to them. I have also built using a 5-way which is good for really fast pickup selection, but I miss out on having the ability to have any pickup on. Here's how I have it laid out.

Mini toggle closest to neck= TPC on no loop/ TPC on with loop/ Passive
The next top three are on/off for each pup
The bottom three are series/split/parallel for each pup
The last switch turns the Stratoblaster on and off

The top pot is master volume. Next is neck tone and then middle/bridge tone. Last pot is the blaster gain.
