Changing a volume pot with a selector switch

Hi guys

I have a les Paul style guitar with 2 volumes and 2 tone knobs. What I want to do is replace one of the volume or tone pots with a selector switch (unsure which one) so it looks like an esp truckster with 3 knobs and a switch instead of 4 knobs. I am also using emgs. I must stress I am an amateur at moddingtthings like this so any help would be greatly appreciated

Many thanks

do you want the upper (current) switch to not do anything like in the truckster?

if thats the case its fairly simple.. you can follow this diagram, and just apply it to your current setup

Yes I do thanks. Also thinking of doing it to my epiphone explorer when I pay that off at work. IMO I think it looks better. Thanks. Also is there any videos on this? I tried YouTube but I think I might be typing in the wrong thing. It's just that I learn things easier like that. Thank you

there aren't really videos that I know of, but I haven't really been searching for them.. which part are you hoping to find a video about?

you could try searching things like 'how to change pickups', 'how to solder', 'follow guitar wiring diagram'..stuff like that

what is it you're looking for though?
