ObsidianWire Custom Blender for Strat® 

PLAY YOUR NECK AND BRIDGE PICKUPS TOGETHER

The ObsidianWire Custom Blender for Strat® is the solder-less wiring harness, with famous Stratocaster® blender mod built in.

With a master volume and master tone control the Custom Blender Harness packs your traditional Strat® tones into a smaller space, leaving the third tone control free.

This becomes the blender control, adding the ability to blend the neck and bridge pickups in together. This is amazing for adding a range of musical mids to your lead tone (like the bell like effects David Gilmour gets in his signature Strat) or for adding some twang to your rhythm, just like you find in the middle position on a Tele®. When you need a complete wall of sound, you can even mix all three pickups together by flicking the five way switch to position 2 or 4.

 THE BUILD

We have a small team of people that love crafting Pro-Wired Electronics and we take pride in producing the absolute best. We use custom specified parts, perfected techniques, and hand test to ensure that your harness will be an upgrade for your guitar, from factory model to custom shop.

CRYSTAL CLEAR TONE

To make your tone crystal clear at lower volumes we also include an ObsidianWire Custom Spec Treble Bleed Mod. This prevents tone 'muddiness' at low volumes by allowing high frequencies to pass along a separate path to your amp, rather than being stopped short by the increasing resistance at the volume control.
