I did some research on the 5 way with the hoop stuff and decided a 4 way with middle pos in parallel and series was the way to go.So I have a plate from the Roadhouse as a more is more guy I got the 5,way plate with the HOoP circuit supposed to be more stratty. Originally I had it in a cheap partscaster putting it all together was ok and I needed a few question answering but they were great in getting back to me . The 1st one did not work so he sent me out another with a possible solution on condition I returned it if the solution worked .
I decided I wanted noiseless option and got a set of fender Gen 4 because I really like them in my strat elite . Again sought advice as the Gen. 4 have an extra wire . Again very prompt . I had recently bought a Shijie TLV Pro and put it into there with the different but still very good Shijie pups going in the parts caster. . Struggled to get 3 wires into the solderless connection and even now 2 months later I’m worried in case one of the wires pulls out. Sound wise it’s important to know what to expect positions 1 -3 work like a normal tele position 4is the hoop it’s not stratty but a little more wiry and light weight . Position 5 I can’t really tell from poison 1. I think it’s meant to be boosted in some way so not worth the effort . Really a 4,way with the HOoP would better .
He's been very helpful. The terminals are well gripped. Not concerned with that. Pots wise, I'm not really that fussed as long as it works and doesn't fall apart in 6 weeks.
