Not flawless by any stretch, but decent enough for my needs

Had to route a few things before the pots and switches would all fit

Hawt!

What's the "special wiring"?
FANCY wiring :squint:

5 Position with a toggle
1) Neck single
2) Neck + middle
3) Neck + bridge single
4) Bridge single + Middle
5) Bridge

in the bridge position, the toggle goes Series/split/Parallel. Its a bit odd as in position 4 if the toggle isnt set to series it kills the signal, and in position 3 it kills only in parallel, but works with the toggle set to split. i WAS anticipating it not doing anything in position 4, and setting position 3 to middle single only, but i have to trace some wires and get that sorted. In the meantime, it sounds pretty damn good :metal:

the 5way fit, but the wiring on the back of mr monster vlx91 liked to brush up a bit, so i made sure it fit freely, to avoid any weird groundy shit, and risk of mechanical damage. Otherwise, the volume pot didnt fit in, which is why i had to route by the trem, and the mini toggle didnt quite fit either, which is why i routed in the back there.

How you liking that Aldrich Max? If I like that Q Tuner I just got I might sell one of my BKP's and try out an Aldrich and if I don't like the Q-Tuner I might sell it and buy an Aldrich.

The Aldrich (bridge) is currently my all-time favorite pickup.
