    Question On a strat, is there a way to...?

    If I wire up 3 livewires in a strat, is there a way to get all three pickups on at once? (without using any push/pulls or extra switches or different parts)

    Yes. Replace the 2nd tone knob with a blend pot.

    Agree. Disconnect one of your tone pots. Wire the other tone as either a master tone or just tone for neck and middle. Run a jumper wire from the switch where the bridge pup is attached to the tone pot and from the pot to the switch where the neck pup is attached. That will let you blend in the bridge to the neck position giving you bridge and neck on together, and you can add the bridge to the neck and middle pups giving you all three pups on.

    It helps to no load the blender pot so you can get pure neck or bridge. If you dont, there's always a little bit of the other on making it clucky.
