    "Blend" pots replace selector switches. You use them to blend from one pickup to the other. It wouldn't kill the volume in any position. You'd still need a separate pot for volume (which would be a standard pot).

    Typical PJ bass wiring is like this (alternatively, with a 3-way switch instead of a blend pot):

    I should've elaborated. Yes, a master volume with the blend pot.
    As the the diagram you posted shows.

    Do you guys sell a 500K push-pull linear taper pot? Couldn’t find one on your site.

    We can special order them, but we don't currently stock them. No one has ever asked for one in linear.

    Well, I’m confused. Research says tone pots are best used linearly, yet I’ve no idea if the tone pots in my Fenders and whatnot are A or B type.

    Switching to a linear tone pot is a popular mod, but most Fender-style guitars come stock with A/Log pots in all positions.

    If you have a multimeter, you can easily check the pots you have:
    1) Measure the outside lugs to get the full resistance of the pot. (Let's say 250K)
    2) Turn the shaft to the half-way point (usually perpendicular to the edge where the lugs are), and measure the middle lug with the outside lug. If the result is roughly half of the full resistance (around 125K in this example), it is a B/linear pot. If the result is 10%-30% of the full resistance (25K-75K), you have an A/Log pot.

    Measured two guitar's tone pots. 500K pots give me about 480K midway. The pots registered around 560K outside lug to outside lug. Guess log (A) is what I'll go for. Thanks

    Website feature request. Someday, could you add the ability to view all items at once instead of having to go from page to page? Makes it easier to compare items. Thanks!

    Not sure what you did, or how you did it. But you don't have to go page to page. There are QTY fields on each category page, you can use them and click add-to-cart on the required products without leaving the page.

    When viewing products. if the number of products is greater than 20, you have to scroll through the pages. There's no option to "view all". I've attached a screenshot to help make this clearer. Nothing to do with adding items to a cart.

    I see what you mean. Sorry, totally misread your original post. Great idea. I will look into it.

    In the meantime, you can narrow the results on the page quite a bit by using filters provided on the left of each category page.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I know, the new filters are awesome. Best in the business.
