How to Guide - Fitting a Pre-Wired Harness to a Stratocaster!

With every pre-wired harness I ship out, I supply a handy fitting guide with tips and key points to follow to make the install go smoothly as well as a simple to follow wiring diagram. But, understandably of course, sometimes translating that info to the real world when the soldering iron is smoldering away can be a little daunting if you're not used to it. So I've wanted to create a step-by-step guide to fitting one of my Home of Tone pre-wired Stratocaster harnesses!

You may have noticed a recent change to my pre-wired guitar harnesses, so I thought I'd put together a guide as to what has changed, and of course why!

I want to replace my guitar's wiring, would it make a difference?

Replacing, or in some cases, upgrading your guitar's wiring may be a matter of necessity if there are niggling faults like faulty switches or noisy pots perhaps. But you may also have considered replacing it as a way of improving or modifying the guitar too. So the big question is of course, would it make any difference?
That's ultimately what I'm hoping to address in this post! I'm looking to touch on the various aspects of guitar wiring components, what to look for and why it would, or wouldn't positively help the guitar in question sound it's best.
