    Hello, is it possible to put a Tele wiring harness in a strat? Im building a 50s style partsacaster and wanna do something different/funky and i was gonna go for the Emerson 5 way strat blender kit but i see they also have wiring kits for teles.

    I don't understand the question. A "harness" is pots and wire. You can do whatever floats your boat.

    I wire all of my Strats like a post 67 Tele: 3 way switch B/BN/N. Volume and master tone. The bottom tone knob become a blender for the middle pickup.

    It's the final evolution in my Strat journey. ;)

    Yes. I have no use for it by itself. LOL

    I hate the quack positions too, but sometimes they get asked for. Again...this is just my personal preference...what I've landed on after trying all the other options.
