    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 Days

    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.

      Hello, I have some tapped Stratocaster pickups. They have two separate lead wires to different wind amounts. Can I use to blender between the two leads and then have a master wire go back to the switch? I hope I worded it in a way that you understand.

      Hey Grant, sorry for the late response -  that's a great question - I can't guarantee that the Blender Pot will do what you want as we've never tried using it this way, but I think it could do what you're looking for! Give it a try and let us know. - Tyler

      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

    4. 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?

    8. 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?

      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.
