Mitch Posted March 24, 2009 Report Share Posted March 24, 2009 I bought a blend pot from stew mac and I wired it into my guitar. I definatly wired it correctly to the stewmac diagrams (twice, because i thought it might have been a wiring fault so i desoldered and rewired). The problem is when I have the knob at 10 it plays only the bridge pickup (this is how it is supposed to be) and when it is at 0 it plays all neck pickup (as it should do). But when I turn down from 10 (bridge pickup) it just decreases the volume till it gets to 5 and the guitar is silent then i go below 5 down towards 0 the volume starts going back up but on the neck pickup. 0=full neck pickup 3=neck pickup quiet but no bridge pickup 5=no sound at all 7=bridge pickup quiet but no neck pickup 10=full bridge pickup What i want from the blend pot is a fade between the 2 pickups. I also noticed (when i took the pot apart, couldn't resist ) that half the carbon track on both tracks was white. This must be some kind of isulator. Have I missed something on the stewmac website? Is this supposed to be an alternative to 2 volume knobs? I'm considering just getting a switch or doing this diagram: would this work? (thats a potentiometer by the way) Thanks is advance Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
