Hi,
I've been wanting to install a passive distortion toggle switch in my Gretsch and need some help getting it right. The gretsch is wired as in the 1st pic . I was thinking to place the switch (pic2) in between the master tone and jack. So far it hasn't been working even though its wired up this way. The switch doesn't do anything. Also the switch I'm using is an On On SPST as opposed to the On Off in the picture, so could this be causing the problem?
Thanks.

What diodes are you using? First off I don't know if a guitar would produce a high enough voltage to even get clipped.

They're bat41 Schottky diodes which are what the tutorial says , I just want to get the wiring right as the diodes are an easy change
