And lots of it.
I'm about to install new pickups on my strat, is there anything I can do to the wiring to make it feedback like crazy? What are your feedback tricks?

I don't play a guitar but i turn up the delay settings of my synth to the max and stick a microphone near the speakers.Depending on what effect i apply to the sound,it makes a nice racket.

crappy noisy pickups and badly soldered grounding, 1-3 distortion pedals,volume to max. and some modulation would be cool as well

Ahh I bought two standard fender pickups and a vintage 60's bridge pickup.

what is your strat? if its something expensive you may not wanna fuck it up doing all this stuff.

buy a cheap japanese copy, they have like the noisiest pickups.

but as long as youre turned up loud, with single coils and a fender guitar it will be fine. even the higher end fenders are noisy...

My thoughts exactly. If you bugger with your guitar's wiring, you're going to end up with a guitar that can do nothing other than feedback.

you can always wire it back if you dont like it. but you can just make feedback with a normal guitar without having anything to do with it.

i posted this months ago but you might have missed and/or want to try this

instructions ofr making a microphone with a 6 inch or bigger or smaller diaphragm....


what you need -

car speaker 2 - 8 ohm
canare two core or star quad cable
neutrik tip sleeve jack

.....


strip an inch from the sleeve around the cable exposing the wires - should be one blue one white plus a shield. get rid of the paper and string.

don't forget the boot

solder the white wire to the tip part of the jack
solder the blue and the shield to the sleeve


then at the other end solder the white to the positive pole and the blue to the negative pole.

plug it all into your fx and your amp and you will have hours of glorious feedback stimulation with your new microphone.......

It's a cheap copy. I'm buying fender everything for it.

Get a hollowbody guitar with some really cheap unshielded pickups.
