I was looking into buying a fender aerodyne strat and mod it to look like tom morello's soul power guitar. What are the needs to nearly replica his guitar exact?

Hotrails in the bridge. Killswitch on the lower horn. Ibanez Edge trem.

Morello uses a Special Run strat. Why not just get that?

Please don't tell me I'm the only one that clicked this thread thinking I would learn how to make my guitar sound like a grizzly bear.

Maybe he prefers the feel of the Aerodyne more?

where can i get a killswitch?

They're very rare, so maybe you'll have to shell out some serious big bucks on eBay. That is, if you can find any sellers who are willing to part with them...

WHAT?

You can make a killswitch with a plain switch or do it the way morello does it a lot and turn all the pickup volumes to zero (except the pick up he is using) and flip the pickup switch.

I don't like the pickup selector way. Some people get their tone with a combination of two pickups, and that method goes out the window if you have to turn one pickup down. Mind you, it's nice to experiment with.

You can get a regular SPST, DPST (or is it SPDT, I forget), or a DPDT and wire it like this.
If it only has one row of switches, ignore the blue side, if it only has two lugs, ignore the empty lug on the yellow side.

EDIT:

I forgot to post the diagram :S
