    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.

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).

    Installation

    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.

      Does the blender pot work symmetrically? E.g. Blender pot @ 25% Bridge Selection => 75% bridge, 25% neck Neck Selection => 75% neck, 25% bridge?

      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.

      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.

    4. What brand is the pot? Is it CTS? And is it no load? Thank you!

      Hey Kevin, yes - CTS makes this pot, and it is a no-load pot.

      Hey Rick, purchase and install a blender pot per our instructions.

    8. I just purchased a Fender American Pro II and want to swap out the push-pull tone nob #2 for a no load blend pot, like I have on my other Strat. Do you see any issues, before I dig in? Thx - Joe Jabon PS. I can't understand why Fender opted for the push-pull pot instead of a simple no load blend pot and a single tone control.

      Hey Joe, I don't forsee any issues with swapping your push-pull with a no-load tone pot (blender pot). - Tyler

      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!!

    3. Rick Baughman
      Verified Buyer

      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.
