MixFlexTone ™

for Fender Stratocasters

Stratocaster Design has a specialized tone circuit that Bruce Gombrelli designed about 5 years ago called MixFlexTone Circuit

It’s a very flexible and useful circuit for many types of Stratocaster applications, and it’s all done without changing the look of a standard strat.

You can use a wide variety of pickups with the circuit but the basic requirements is this:

A humbucker that has distinct coils (like a lace sensor dually) and 2 single coils of any kinds in the middle and neck. Of course, there are some recommended models.

The HSS circuit features the following:

  • Full Humbucker arrangement on the bridge
  • Split humbucker, works great with a Lace Dually or any other optional Humbucker that has 2 distinct coils.
  • A switchable Middle pickup configuration and can be blended with any pickup or completely independent by itself in the 2nd position.
  • The middle pickup has it’s own volume control which doubles as a blend control
  • The 2nd volume control (1st standard strat tone) is a push-pull switch with operates the middle pickup.
  • The tone control can be completely by passed.
  • Sounds, go from full humbucker to ultra spanky.

The SSS version features the following (MixFlex Single Tone)

  • 3 single coil pickup arrangement with standard 5 position switch
  • A switchable Middle pickup configuration and can be blended with any pickup or completely independent by itself in the 2nd position.
  • The middle pickup has it’s own volume control which doubles as a blend control
  • The 2nd volume control (1st standard strat tone) is a push-pull switch with operates the middle pickup.
  • The tone control can be completely by passed
