    The Fralin Blender Pot gives you the ability to blend your Neck and Bridge Pickups, as well as get all 3 on single-coil guitars. This is a great product for those who love to “tinker” with wiring, like Lindy!

    The Blender Pot only works on Strat and Tele installations. It features a 1/4″ bushing, suitable for pickguard and control plate installations only. For Archtop / Les Paul installations, check out our Push-Pull Blender Pot.

    Available! Estimated Lead Time: 2-3 Weeks

    Sleeve

    Include a Sleeve to convert your Blender Pot to a Solid Shaft Pot.

    Due to the nature of Raw Nickel, Raw Nickel may contain slight cosemetic defects or abrasions.

    We recommend using 2-Conductor With Shield Lead when purchasing a single pickup. 2-Conductor lead allows you to reverse the phase should you have phase issues. Learn More

      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?

      Hey Jeff, grounding the blender pot shouldn't do that to the tone. Can you reach out to us at "[email protected]" and provide some photos so we can help troubleshoot?

    2. 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.

    4. 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.

      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.
