This wiring harness offers a unique and simple way to achieve multiple Strat pickup configurations and tones without drilling holes for switches and push pull pots. It uses a custom made CTS Blender Pot that acts as a True Bypass in the circuit when turned completely clockwise. A regular pot wouldn’t work for this application because you would still hear the other pickup bleed through. Here’s how it works:
Dial-in your perfect tone
A Standard 5-Way Strat has 1 volume and 2 tones. The Blender wiring has 1 volume, 1 master tone, and a Blender pot. In the neck position you can blend the bridge pickup in as much as you want. In the bridge position you can blend the neck pickup in as much as you want. In positions 2 and 4 you can have all three pickups on at once. No drilling extra holes for toggle switches or push/pull pots.
