The “quacky” overall tone of the center and link collection trucks, made popular by players such as Level Gilmour, Rory Gallagher, Level Knopfler, Bob Dylan, Scott Thurston, Eric Clapton and John Cray, can be acquired by using the collection selector into roles 2 and 4. The throat and center collection trucks are each wired to a overall tone management that features just one, distributed overall tone capacitor, whereas the link collection, which is angled towards the high post for a more trebly audio, has no overall tone management for maximum lighting. On many modern Stratocasters, the first overall tone impacts the throat pickup; the second overall tone impacts the center and link pickups; on some Specialist Sequence designs (Eric Clapton and Friend Guy trademark guitars), the first overall tone is a existence routine that reduces or increases highs and bass sounds wavelengths, impacting all the pickups; the second overall tone is an active mid-range enhancer that increases the mid-range wavelengths up to 25dB (12dB on certain models) to produce a heavier humbucker-like audio.
The amount level on all three collection trucks is managed by just one amount handle. The position of the buttons allows for relatively easy adjustment of the audio with the right hand while playing.
