    Blessed Sunday you all!

    I could use a little help. I have a PJ with a PU switch. I hate switches so I bought a blend pot. I've been soldering all afternoon. But it's not working how it should. I got the P and the J working in the extreme positions, but moving towards the middle position doesn't blend the signals, the volume goes to 0. :meh:

    What did I do wrong?

    This is the blend pot:

    Dual 500K Blend/Balance Audio Taper Pot, With Center Detent, With Hardware


    I hooked it up exactly like this:

    Thanks in advance! :cool:

    If you have a multimeter, you can test the pot to see if it works. All I can realy offer you is lyle caldwell's diagram of a blend-volume-tone setup. Ive used one of lyle's diagrams before and they're good.

    The multimeter trick worked.
    Dang, I could have figured that out myself. Thanks Alowishus.

    Great! :)
