Log In needed $10 · Bypass tone circuitry, OR blend all 3 Strat pickups with this no-load potReport Ad
Hard to find... brand new no-load 250 k CTS blender pot for single coil (SSS) Strat. Audio taper (logarithmic - "A" designation), split shaft, fine spline. Shaft fits American Strat knobs only.
If you replace your current tone pot with this one without modifying the wiring for the pickups as below, and turn it all the way up to 10, then the tone circuit is actually removed completely from the signal path (bypassed). You'll hit your amplifier with a hotter output and brighter tone than you'd get with normal tone circuits.
OR, if you install this pot in place of one of your Strat tone pots and rewire as per instructions (and convert the remaining tone pot to global), it will allow pickup combinations you can't achieve with a regular Strat configuration (see image 3).
In the full "on" or 10 position, the pot will be in "no load" mode and will not affect anything. Once you move it past 10 towards 1, it will gradually blend in one of the other pickups (ie Bridge and Neck) or all three at once, depending on what setting you've selected on your 5 position Strat pickup switch. See the third pic with this ad for details.
Comes with original packaging and instructions. I ordered this through Amazon, but ended up with a second one from another distributor as well, so I am willing to part with this one at half the price I paid for it (it cost me $20 total through Amazon).
