9+ sounds for Stratocaster* (3 single coil pickups or non-splitting humbuckers in HSS/HSH configuration)
Use this ORDER CHANNEL only if you are buying a harness without pickups. If you are ordering pickup(s) there is provision to include a harness (same price as displayed above) after you click the BUY button for your pickup(s). Generally this will not increase the cost of shipping.
Provides the optimum electrical environment allowing the pickups to develop their full sonic and feel potential. Soldering is eliminated 100% with this ingenious harness when Kinman pickups are included in order.
The K9 Goodbye-Soldering Harness Gen-2 provides the utmost sonic versatility. Offers all but one sound of the K7 plus more Knopfler-esque sounds as well a high output 'in-series' sound reminiscent of a P-90 for overdrive.
The K9 harness provides all 5 normal Strat sounds plus 4 highly usable new dimension sounds. The 6th, 7th and 8th sounds are variations of the distinctive Knopfler-esque quack sound while the 9th sound is in Gibson P-90 territory and provides boost in output for natural crunch sounds. These are selected with the lower Push/Push pot. Popping the knob out with the pickup selector switch in position 2 re-connects the Bridge & Middle from parallel into series*, for boost in output and instant humbucker/P-90ish crunch: and also *that* plus the neck pickup in parallel for fat hollow Knopfler-esque sounds.

The volume pot has the famous Kinman treble bypass filter so you won't lose highs when you turn the volume down. A unique additional feature is the internal slide switch where you can select either of 2 tone caps, the Kinman High Definition Tone cap, or a regular tone cap if you want normal extreme treble cut. Another unique feature is the mini slide switch that changes the volume pot from 250k to 500k -OR- a separate ability to set the volume pot value to either 250k or 500k for any or all pickups. This allows you to use Humbuckers, P-90's, Kinman Big-Nine-O or other types of pickups that sound best with a 500k volume pot in combination with pickups that sound best with a 250k volume pot. .... -or- perhaps you just want to hear what your Strat pickups sound like with a 500k volume pot.
The pots and K9 control are user replaceable without soldering (in the rare event one needs to be replaced).
The K9 works well with all Kinman pickups. In series mode the sound is fat and furry on the treble strings similar to a P-90/humbucker, but with better bass side definition than a humbucker. Imagine ..... a Strat and Gibson in one guitar!
