Strat Activators - help me identifying these
« on: February 05, 2017, 04:56:52 AM »
Hi guys,


I recently acquired on *bay a complete set of Activators pickups and electronics for a Stratocasters(3xsingle coils). Those seem all genuine Alembic parts. However, the electronics has a third pot/circuit board that fits in the lower Strat pickguard hole. In my humble knowledge, the Activators kit comes with volume and filter control, with an optional Q-Switch. Which is the function of the third control?





Thank you to all that can solve the mystery...

I'm pretty sure it's an AE-3 electronics set, so that would be Volume,Treble and Bass.
Here's a thread where Mica helped me identify with my "extra" module  ;)

Installing those is one of the nicest things you can do for a strat!
The sound of Alembic is medicine for the soul!

Just a little question: which value is the Volume pot on those electronics?

thank you in advance,
