Instructions
250K vs. 500K
Generally, 500K-ohm pots are used with humbuckers and 250Ks are used with single-coil pickups. You can use any value you like, but a 250K will give a slightly warmer tone than a 500K pot. The 250K pot bleeds off (attenuates) some of the high frequencies to ground.

Shaft diameter 6mm split shaft, coarse knurling
Thread M7 x 0.75
Threaded portion 3/8" (9.52mm)
Required mounting hole diameter    9/32" (7.14mm)
Flat washer and two mounting nuts included

DEFECTIVE POTS

I ordered two of these blend pots at separate times. I really like Stew-Mac, but both had a defective lower element. This is the only product that I have not been totally satisfied with.

No awkward volume decrease

When you get this thing installed correctly and properly grounded you don't get the awkward volume decrease in the middle position that you get with some cheaper blend pots. I also didn't loose any tone quality with these.

Blend pot

Works pretty well, but the shaft will pull out of the pot when removing control knob. Be careful with installation.

Blend pot on a Jazz bass

I replaced the Volume, Volume, Tone configuration on a Fender Fretless Jazz bass with a Blend, Volume and Tone controls. The instrument now offers a constant volume to the amp/ Front of House systems when panning between pick-ups and offers a variety of options in bridge/neck pick-up blends. Changing the volume level for solos is much easier. The Fender “sound” was not impacted with the change.

Guitars can have blend pots as well.

I use blend pots for pickup selection in my guitars. I like doing this because you get a lot of options as compared to the normal 3 position toggle switch. The blend pot is good quality.

Great option for a passive Jazz Bass...

The right choice to wire a passive Jazz Bass with the blend option (Volume, Blend, Tone).
I love it!
