    Does anyone know what value the pots are in a 2014 Eric Johnson Strat (maple board)? I bought some Lollar Dirty Blondes and am trying to figure out what electronics I need to replace. I know I want to go with a .015 or .022 capacitor. Also, where's a good place to buy the electronics from? I'm looking to go with a blender pot (no load), master volume & tone. Thanks in advance.

    Here is a diagram of a stacked pot wired as a blender:

    Here is the Fezz Parka mod, a popular blender wiring scheme using a no-load single layer 250k tone pot:.

    Thanks for the diagrams (my tech was asking for these). I just need to buy a .015 capacitor. Still debating the PIO vs. Orange Drop...I know, I know...:)

    Hey I am finishing my fezz wiring and my doubt is with no load pot.

    I get the neck and bridge wiring, but where does the ouput from the blender pot goes to?
