    I've done it before, but I found that active preamps with their buffered blends sound better. I don't remember which pot I used but I doubt it would work for you as this was in a bass with EMGs but no active balance.

    Almost all blend pots have center detents. 250k may be uncommon, as it makes most high impedance basses sound dark. Solid shafts are also uncommon, because split shafts work with almost all knobs, and split shafts can be converted to solid shafts with brass sleeves.

    What taper did you want? M/N taper blends are typically preferable to A/C taper blends.

    Maybe try posting this in the electronics section, there are always people willing to give advice and help.
