      Hey Ken, not at all! This mod works perfectly with sets with a RW / RP middle pickup.

    2. I recently bought the Tele kit for my scratch build. Please advise what size top hat switch knob I need to buy that will fit the switch in this kit.

      Hey Frank, These work really well. - Tyler

    4. Can you advise what knobs are available to fit the pots supplied with the telecaster kit I’ve received. Unfortunately the stewmac chrome with mop tops are tiny bit too small on the shaft.

      Hey Frank, I'm sorry for the delay in this response. Our pots have a 0.250" shaft, so the inner diameter of the knob needs to be bigger than that. - Tyler

    8. Ok I’m interested in getting the the blender pot kit. I have the blues special pickups in my strat. Btw is the best pickups I’ve ever used. Just wondering. What would be the best tone cap for this set up? I noticed that you send three.

      Hey Thomas, I recommend the 0.02cap to start. If you wanted a darker tone, go with the 0.05, and if you wanted something experimental, the Magic Cap will be a cool thing to toy with.

      These pickups are phenomenal. All the twang you could ask for. Can play throaty, bell-like tones to snarly bluest tomes. I absolutely love them. Not completely sold on the magic cap. It pretty much kills the tone knob, but with these pickups, you don’t really need a tone knob anyway.

      Fantastic upgrade !!

      I have a MIJ Foto Flame Telecaster that is one of my best guitars, I have owned it for about 25 years. It has always been one of my best sounding guitars and plays and feels just right. I realized recently that the pots, switch & electrical components were fairly cheap on these MIJ models and I contemplated for quite a while whether to mess with a good thing. WOW, am I pleased I did. These parts turned this guitar into a total tone monster !! I honestly could not believe the difference. I did end up using a 022 Orange drop cap but I tried all the caps that came with the kit and they were awesome but not as wide-ranging as I would have liked. The Magic Cap is amazing I think if you were just a lead player but I am a Rhythm Guitarist. You can not go wrong with this kit and it is a bargain to boot!!

      All I needed, with one caveat

      So this kit was pretty handy to have everything I needed in one place. I only had one problem, which is that the potentiometers were just a little to big to fit in the control cavity, leading to me tracking down and ordering a set of equivalent mini potentiometers. I think that’s more of a fault of the guitar’s construction than of Fralin though.

      Stratocaster standard wiring kit

      The 5-way switch, tone, and volume pots are top quality and they work and sound great, I have 6 other Strats that I will install this kit on.

      High-Quality set!

      Good stuff!
      Great parts kit to put together my blender pot Strat rebuild. Plenty of wire, pots, and switches were top notch and I liked the capacitor choices even though I went with the standard 047 (for now).
      With the on-site wiring diagrams, the installation was a breeze – couldn’t be happier!

      My guitar guy, Scott Campbell, put the blender pot in with no problems and it sounds amazing! You can really hear the wide range of tone options with the bridge and neck pickups blended together.

    10. Michael Sweeting
      Verified Buyer

      Top notch!!!
      Really broadens the range of available tones!
