what guitar are you putting it in?

it's pretty much just drilling a hole the appropriate size, and make sure theres enough room in the control cavity

that switch looks a bit big to fit in a guitar, though :/

well, the switch is 65mm tall, take off maybe 2mm of height for the button assembly

I'm not sure you'll be able to fit it, man :/

measure the thickness of your body if you want to be sure, though

Is it not advisable to drill a hole in my LP?

^the first one isn't actual buttons for sale..its clipart

the second one should work well though

and its all up to you if you want to drill a hole in it
resale value'll go way down, but if thats not an issue, then...well, it's not an issue

So guys, I have EMG 81 wired directly to output. How to connect a SPDT on/off toogle switch,with 3 lugs?

Do I have to use ground from the input jack, orfrom the bridge?

Hi
I am a bit annoyed of the "pop" I get when unplugging my bass to save the batteries. Is this the same sort of pop that you get using a killswitch without the resistor? And is there a way to use the resistor idea, but modified to stop the pop when unplugging?

Sorry for being nooby, but what do I wore where if I have 3 single 1 vol 1 tone and a 2 way toggle switch (it has 6 "prongs") I guess it's a duel throw.

Thank you!

Well, since I assume you mean wire, not wore, as this is not a dressing up thread

It should be in a 2x3 array:

A-D
B-E
C-F
Wire A to ground, which should be the back of the pot or the sleeve of the jack.
Wire B to the wire coming from the middle lug on your volume pot
Wire C to the tip of your jack.

Leave D, E, and F blank.

The tip of the jack is the lug that continues down into the jack and is "sandwiched" in the middle, then is attached to that long metal, arm thing.

Here ya go, not sure on the kind of 5 way, but this should be how your guitar is wired:


EDIT: The little triangle things are grounds. connect them all to a single spot, either at the back of a pot or the sleeve of the jack.

doesnt matter which wire goes to which lug as long as you use a pole and a throw. you are using as an spst switch.

i decided to put the killswitch on my bass instead of my guitar. however, the wiring's a bit different, instead of a volume and tone knob there's a neck pickup volume, a bridge pickup volume and a tone knob. here's a picture. would the wiring be any different since i'm working through two volumes?

What about a box that has the killswitch in it? Like this...
http://www.instructables.com/id/easy-killswitch/

I built this (without the rocker switch) and would like to know if it would damage my guitar or amp in any possible way.
