    Hello! I think about modding my blade b1 tetra standard...

    I want to use piezo (buffered) with aguilar obp2 band and 5 way srat switch (2 dimarzio model j + willpower neck)..

    5way positions:
    1 bridge j
    2 bridge j + neck j
    3 bridge j + wilpower neck
    4 neck j + wilpower neck
    5 wilpower neck

    Do you think it could work fine?

    I have no idea how this will sound; but anything is possible so long as you put the time and effort into the mod.
    I'm curious to see how this Frankenstein will sound???
    Keep us posted!!!

    Howdy, Sandman, good to see someone else from the same city. :D

    It can be done, here's one version with a Megaswitch:

    There's also this wiring, also using a Megaswitch:

    Alternatively I'd go with a regular 5-way switch and a push-pull volume pot, then wire it as a seven-sound Stratocaster.
