Why do you suppose bass's use "blends", while guitars use switches?

    That's one of the things I find odd, and also the reason I ordered the EMG ABC circuit. (Which has arrived.) Almost all the active circuits I've seen, including all of the Duncan preamps, use a passive blend in front of a basically single-channel preamp. Buffering the two inputs to the blend pot is such a tiny amount of circuitry. One dual-opamp would do it. I'm not sure why it isn't done more often. My Toby bass has terrible pup loading. The blend and volume are both passive on the input to the preamp.
