      Can I install a blender pot with humbuckers? If so, what are the appropriate pot #s?

      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.

    2. 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.

    6. 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

    8. The features page say "It installs easily by replacing your tone pot 2 (closest to output jack)." My tone pot 2 is has the Fender TBX I want to preserve, and use as a master tone. Is there any problem with installing the blender on tone 1 pot instead?

      Hey Ben, there's no issue with replacing your Tone Pot 1 with the Blender Pot! - Tyler

      Works great!!

    2. Mark Flemmer

      I agree with the other review that states all 3-pickup guitars should come stock with this. I have it on my Stratocaster, and can’t imagine owning a Strat without it. Myriad tonal variations are possible—a must have mod if you want to maximize your Strat’s tonal possibilities!

    3. Michael Mason
      Verified Buyer

      Wow.

      I really didn’t know what to expect when I purchased this. It was recommended to me and since I didn’t really need a second tone knob, I thought that it wouldn’t hurt to try it out. Whatever my expectations were, this beat all of them. The different range of tones and the ability to switch between what pickup(s) you are using is incredible. I would highly recommend one to anyone who is on the fence or anyone who is looking to broaden their guitar’s range.

      Hi Lindy, I’m currently having a partscaster put together and I believe Garret Park Guitars In Annapolis is using your blender pot. I’m not exactly sure how to achieve what I’m going for but we thought we’d give your pot a shot. I’m basically doing the Brian May thing with Trisonics and want to primarily run my guitar in series on the Bridge and middle pickups as well as the neck and middle. Neck and Bridge is the final setting I’ll be using. This guitar is to be used only for Series sounds. Another guitar is for parallel sounds. Will the blender work for me?

    5. Daniel Raine

      I’m a total newb with regard to pickups, but I’m trying to learn more. Can this blender be used to blend between a humbucker (bridge) and single-coil (P90) neck? Does it matter which pickups it blends between?

    6. Michael Murphy

      Useful option! Blends the bridge and neck pickups together. Different characteristics depending on which pickup you are on. So far, I mainly use this to smooth out the bridge pickup when not using a lot of gain. I like the neck so much that I rarely blend that one. And blending it when there is no OD helps give the High Output bridge some richness.

    7. David Chamberlin
      Verified Buyer

      Blender is the way to go! All 3 pickup guitars should come stock with these things! I put it in 2 of my strats and love it.

      Blender Pots A Plenty
      Ok I’ll admit it-I’m a blender pot junkie. Since installing one of these in a strat a few years ago I’ve become hooked on how versatile they make any guitar. I have them in almost all of my electrics and have found that Lindy’s pot is the most reliable and I use it almost exclusively.

    9. Scott Dale

      I love this blender idea and it works great. I often play a strat but when I need a tele tone it is right there with this setup. Or if I just want to tame a little brightness on my bridge PUP I dial in a little neck. Same thing if I want to shine up the neck I roll in a little bridge. IMO there is not a more useful mod you can make to a strat at any price and this is just $10 with no other compromise. Easy to wire up yourself if you have some amatuer soldering skills.
