I have just aquired an old Guyatone Solid body from the late 50's/Early 60's

Some of the wiring is broken inside.

There apears to be a twelve position switch, meaning that it clicks into 12 place before returning to original position

Is This right ? or am i just looking at it wrong ??

The guitar has 2 controls (im presuming 1 vol, 1 ) (on of the pots is 1000k/1meg, cant see the other)

and 2 covered odd shaped pickups (not sure if they are single coil or humbucker.

anyways

also the switch apears to have to resistors or capcitors soldered to it

has anyone heard of this ?
can i buy a replacement switch ?
does anyone have a wiring diagram for this type of setup ?
does anyone know what all the positions do ?


thanks

a 12-way switch most likely has different caps wired to it. Resistors make no sense, since you could just use a pot in that case. Post a picture so we can see what we can do.

cant really tell from the pics..
maybe take one from a little further back, and it might focus a bit better, even if it's a bit smaller..

do you think it's a 12-position because of the number of lugs, or because you can physically move it into 12 different positions?

and out of curiosity: whats that giant tone cap say on it?

It has 12 clickablepositions until it returns to the same place

and it looks like an old suzuki PIO Capacitor.....it reads...:
