Super Easy Install

 

All ObsidianWire Pro-Wired Electronics are super easy to install, and allow for solder-less pickup changes with ObsidianWire Plug, Play & Enjoy connectors.

 

The Magical Neck & Bridge Pickup Blend

 

Blend your neck and bridge pickups together and get some killer tonal diversity in your Fender® Stratocaster®.

Wind the blender control back, and you regain the traditional five switch positions you love.

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.

 

With The Blender Control Engaged (Position 1)

 

1:Bridge Pickup + Neck Blended in

2:Bridge & Middle Pickup + Neck Blended in

3:Middle Pickup

4:Neck & Middle Pickup + Bridge Blended in

5:Neck Pickup + Bridge Blended in

When it is time to ease back to your traditional positions, simply roll the blender knob off, and it will remove itself completely from the circuit. This returns your neck, middle and bridge pickups back to the vintage positions we all know and love

 

With Blender Control Off (Position 10)

 

1:Bridge Pickup

2:Bridge & Middle Pickup

3:Middle Pickup

4:Neck & Middle Pickup

5:Neck Pickup

 

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.

This product is fantastic, it has made changing pickups a breeze and has also made it easier to audition different pickup sets and combinations to find the perfect tone, the tone lounge staff were extremely helpful and answered any questions expediently via email, a very cool product

Top notch service and products

This piece of kit completely removed the stress of overhauling my MIM stratocaster and adding new pickups. The solder less system works a treat and is very easy to install. And the tones that you can get out the blender feature drastically improve the versatility of the 5 way switch. High quality and responsive customer service. I couldn't be happier.
