So im wiring up my strat to give me a master tone (with bridge on pushpull), master volume and a blender that blends the middle pickup in in series, for humbucking tones.

Everything works except the series mod. In any position where the middle is selected, with the blender on or off, all that happens is the output goes down by a half gain. I have done the same mod on 2 strats with the same effect.

I am trying to do the series blender mod from here http://alexplorer.net/guitar/mods/stratserpar.html, schematic at bottom of page (on middle tone control)

Is this mod perhaps ill conceived, or incorrect?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, hawk

Definitely out of phase, then. Try flipping the middle pickup's wires the other way around.


meaning connect the ground to the 5 way and the common to the pot?

Won't i loose the hum cancelling in the 2 and 4 positions then....

sorry my schematic is slightly different but the series blender is the same, and is not functioning. If you had to do a series blender, how would you do it?


PS: schematic is on that page at the bottom....

I really don't see it.
There's a wiring diagram of the 5-way switch, and that's all I see, for pictures. It keeps referring to the diagram above the text, as if it was right above where it says About The Schematic, but I don't see anything.
If you're talking about a link, the link at the bottom for the Black Strat's schem doesn't show up.

any other opinions? i need to know how to connect a series blender, as clearly the one in this diagram does not do the job.

I am using the middle tone as a blender, but i am not doing the parelle blender on this page, just the series one.
