This Instructable is to show how i fitted a Varitone mod to my vintage Cruzer Stratocaster clone. I felt this was worthwhile as the guitar plays well and has a nice acton and i wanted to see if i could improve the tone.
**THIS IS NOT MY DESIGN! THERE ARE A NUMBER OF WEBSITES THAT SHOW THIS MOD> THIS IS JUST MY INSTRUCTABLE TO MAKE IT CLEARER**
Step 1: Components
For this mod I used four orange drop capacitors (.047, .033,.022,.01) which we bought from ebay for about £2.50 each.
I also used a genuine fender no-load 250k potentiometer which was about £5.50 and a 5-position rotary switch which I bought from ebay (via china) for about £2.60.
I decided to upgrade the wiring as some of it was quite thin so I bought some red white and black braid covered 22 gauge wire from ebay which came to about £6.
