Although I'm a guitarist by heart, I've decided to get into luthiery and maknig stringed instruments. (Guitar and Bass)

2 Quick Questions:
-Can I rewire a Tone Pot into a volume Pot, if so... how?
-Can I reset a 5 way strat switch into a 3 way?

Basically I want to let one of my guitars be able to kill the volume of the neck and do a killswitch effect as Randy Rhoads does... <3
???

Yes, just view any wiring diagram to see how each is wired,

please note you can use log pots as tone pots, but you cant use linear pots as volume pots

Yes, but a 5 way obviously has 5 options so a 3 way switch would mean you have to wire in 2 kill switches.

I currently have a SD blackout set on a 5 way switch wired as,

neck / kill / both / kill / bridge

Yeah I was going to say taht with a 5 way switch you could just set the other two whatever positions to kill, but I don't know exactly how you'd wire it up.
