Blender Pot FEATURES:
One of our favorite and most powerful mods, the Fralin Blender Pot is an easy way to blend your Neck and Bridge pickups to achieve new tones. Achieve Telecaster tones on a Fender Strat by blending the Neck and Bridge together. Blend all 3 pickups together by choosing either position 2 or 4 and playing with the pot. It installs easily by replacing your tone pot 2 (closest to output jack).
The Blender pot includes the following hardware for mounting: Hex Nut and Lock Nut.
Installation Note: The Blender pot’s wires must be installed into the same terminals as the pickups, otherwise, this modification will not work correctly.
With this mod, you can Coil-Tap Humbuckers, Blend 2-Pickup Guitars, and forget 2 Volume Knob wiring.
Follow the instructions here to wire it up in a Standard Fender Stratocaster, utilizing a Master Tone.

Hey Don, what you're referring to is a "Pan Pot", which has a center detent. This is completely different and has no detent. - Tyler
Is this considered a "no-load" pot? In other words, when it is set for 0 blend is it a completely open circuit and not just the maximum resistance of the pot?

Hey Bernard, sorry for the late response - yes, of course you can. - Tyler
I installed a blender pot on my strat according to your wiring diagram, with one difference: i grounded it. Now i have a signal, but it is very very quiet. Could that be because I grounded the back of the blender pot?
- I want to use the blender pot with an HSS set up. I am using your Steel Pole 43 pups in the neck and middle and a PAF style humbucker in the bridge (8.4k). Will the Blender pot work in this set up and do you suggest I use 300k pots for the volume and master tone? Thanks, Greg Z.

Hey Greg, the Blender Pot will work just fine in this setup - and we normally recommend 500K pots for the Volume and Tone for these pickups, but 300K will work if looking for a warmer, darker tone.
With the blender pot does it need to be a split shaft like on my Strat? Any issues with working on a custom shop Stratocaster? Thank you.

The Blender Pot is already Split Shaft and works perfectly on a Strat with a Pickguard.

Reviews we worked hard for, and are proud of.
"The ultimate strat wiring mod! I've tried 10-way and 7-way switches, and this is the one for me. Being able to dial in the amount of blend is really practical (as opposed to being all or nothing like other setups)."
"I’ll never be without it ever again! It’s like having more than one guitar in your hands! I bought a blender for every strat in my collection!"
"Great tool for any guitar. Never cared for the bridge pick-up in a strat, this blender pot was ideal so that I could have the neck pick-up on and not worry about hitting the switch back to the bridge"
