I'm getting a black pickguard for the Flying V as soon as I sell my '84 Camaro Z28 and it's free of charge to modify the new guard. What I thought about doing is switching around the controls a little. Instead of having to reach around all the knobs, do you think it would be a good idea to put the selector where the knob closest to the headstock is currently at? I would then rotate the controls counter-clockwise about the knob closest to the input

i think that'd be unadvisable because you would hit it when you strum.. i know i hit the switch on strats because they're right there.... i think a far switch is a good thing... realistically, how many songs are you going to switch pickups during? probably very few... and in between songs in a setlist.. you ahve time to reach.

Actually I switch pickups almost every song I play lol, I like using the neck pickup for lead parts on the Razorback and I will on the V once I swap it out. I can never reach the selector fast enough during a song and it seems the easiest way to make it.. well easier on me haha. Anyone see a better idea for what I'm wanting to do?
