I have a HSS stratocaster. Fender Texas Specials singles and a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Plus in the bringe. I have rewired the complete guitar using RSS upgrade kit. It has a 5 way switch, vol. 2- tones. The bridge is split. How can I wire it so that I can use a blender in the bridge tone spot to blend in the humbucker or split when i want to...or am I trying to do it the wrong way. Some of you wiring guru's help me out. Thanks
You indicated that you had done the "RSS mod". I don't know what that is. Apparently, at the very least, it involves a bridge tone control, since you indicate that you would sacrifice the bridge tone control for the blender. But the other features of this particular mod may bear on the answers you receive, so more description of how this is currently wired may be helpful.
This does, however, leave you with a single tone control operating on (I presume) the neck pup- you may want to consider moving to a master tone control.
A bridge blender can certainly be done, depending on how your guitar is currently wired- it means buying a blend pot or cutting a track on an existing pot, as the link to JohnH's diagram in your previous post (linked above) shows.
