im going to put a killswitch (spst) into my guitar, and i was wondering if i could wire it with another switch so that if the other switch is on one way, the signal is cut when the button is pressed, and if the other switch is flipped the other way, the signal would only be on when pressed. is this possible?

hmmm... i think so... let me try to think for a sec so i can think of how. im kindof not using the brain now.

EDIT: what is the first switch you are using? SPST? DPDT? 3PDT? (the one already on the guitar)?

So...

You want a push-to-make switch...
And a push-to-break switch?

The way I'm thinking you might be thinking you want the killswitch to be optional functionality; Switch 1 (Killswitch) is On or Off based on whether Switch 2 (control switch) is on or off

Logically speaking...

Killswitch control switch output
on .................on .........................on
off ................on ......................... off
on ................off ..........................on
off ................on ..........................on

Something like that?

The only possible way of doing this is not with a spdt, but a 3pdt.
Like this..



Toggle up, and the button is an "on" switch.
Toggle down, and the button is a "kill" switch.

Or theres this..



Basically, when the killswitch is engaged, you can use the push to break to let the signal through. But the push to break will have no function unless the killswitch is engaged.

Hmmm
These go to eleven...

That's wiring! D: Generally if you try it and it doesn't work, it's no problem. Just desolder it and use some desoldering braid or a desoldering bulb to clean it up!

Yet I have a idea for a good kill switch that won't buzz nore click!

normally they don't click, if they do it's just a bad switch. JIMPLAYSGUITAR could you please explain your second drawing a little more?

The toggle is a regular on-off killswitch. While in the "kill" position, pushing the "push to break" button will let the sound through.

I think this might be what one of you said but I'm not sure. I would go about doing it by having a switch to switch the signal between an N.C. (normally closed) switch for normal operation or to an N.O. (normally open) switch for the singnal to come through.
