    I played Kimock's white Strat at his barn one time several years ago and immediately got it. I now have four three-pickup guitars wired that way, an AmStd Strat from the run they did with Duncan lipstick pickups, the Volante blue Ruokangas pictured above, a Koll Tornado which started out with two P-90s but now sports three Lollar goldfoil pickups, and of course my white Scott Walker Electro which has the same vintage Dan-o lipstick pickups as the white Strat.

    Hang on, there's tubes in the pickup?

    How do you run it?

    Just a 1/4" cable into an amp?

    There’s a separate preamp+power supply that’s in a standard (old MXR) size pedal housing. You plug an XLR cable from the guitar output into that, then off to the pedalboard/amp/DI/whatever via the usual 1/4” cable. The P+PS also has a regular 1/4” input for when you want to switch to a regular guitar.
