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

 

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

 

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.

Worth the price

Been using it for about half a year now and it still works falwlessly, really useful and so good that I can get a telecasteresc sound. Installation was super easy, nothing went wrong. I'm using Noiseless Fender pickups and I had no problems. Really recommend it if you want to upgrade your electronics, because you also get great bonuses with this one and it's so good that you don't have to solder. It's also a great choice if you frequently swap pickups.

Great bit of kit

This makes putting new pickups in so easy. But the best thing is the sound. Treble bleed is perfect, the blend option is a great feature, I can get even more sounds out of my strat now than ever. The alignment was slightly off on my one but had no issues making adjustments.I also purchased your tele 5 way switch from eBay not long ago, I don't think you make them any more, but that was awesome also, perfect fit. Great product, great price will recommend to anyone, not just because there is no soldering, but because they sound awesome.
