1992 Fender U.S. Prodigy II Guitar - [2] Wiring

The scheme I employed for this guitar is a little different from the stock wiring scheme (kindly provided by Brett Leasure of FMIC Consumer Relations). I went with full-sized Alpha 500K pots instead of mini pots, and an Oak Grigsby 5-way switch instead of the stock import "box" switch. The output jack was also relocated to the front of the body a'la a Fender Strat, which meant routing a cavity and adding a jack plate. This was done at the owner's request, who had already suffered a broken pickguard due to the stock pickguard-mounted output jack. A new 3-ply black-white-black pickguard was ordered from Chandler Music, and I must say that both Paul and Adrian Chandler were very courteous and helpful in replying my initial enquiries. The unused output jack hole was sealed with a rubber plug of the exact same size. 'Nuff said, let's look at some pics now.
