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.

Q Is it possible to install the blender pot mod with a 10 way switch (probably overkill)?A Hey Matthew, probably not - if any of the positions wire the pickups in series, the Blender Pot will not work correctly.
If I wanted to have a HHH Strat with a blender (wired in the same way a single coil Strat with blender would be), what value blender would I need? 250k or 500k?

Yes, it takes into account what position you are on. So, if you're on the Bridge position, dialing the Blender Pot to 25% will bring in 25% of the neck position. If you were to keep the same blender pot position and switch to the neck, you'll have 75% Neck and 25% Bridge.

Q Can I install a blender pot with humbuckers? If so, what are the appropriate pot #s?A
Hey Wayne, you can - you don't need to worry about 250K / 500K, and you would only need one blender pot. Take a look at this diagram here for an example.

Unlike most strat players I play in the bridge pickup most of the time. My guitar is on the dark side tonally and I play a surf style so it works for me. Although I mostly use my strat at gigs, for recordings I also use a jazzmaster in the middle position with both pickups on. Just installed the blender pot and I can finally make those jazzmaster songs work on a strat live! Couldn’t be happier, what a great new sound out of a guitar I’ve been gigging with for 14 years. If you’re looking to get those tele or jazzmaster middle position sounds the blender is a no-brainer. Works and sounds far better than I expected, thanks Lindy!
Your blender pot is a quick and easy mod on all my customers Strats. Adding the 2 extra pickup possibilities is an eye opener for all Strat players especially. Homerun!! Great quality part as well!!
The blender pot is a great mod for my Strats. I can retain the character of the bridge pickup but smooth the bite a bit by blending in a little of the neck pickup. Likewise, I can brighten up the neck pickup by adding a little bridge. And having both pickups on full adds another cool tone. It’s an easy mod to wire, so it’s a no brainer.
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!
