It is a pickup selector NOT a toggle Switch, but the pickup selector is a three way.
Is the pickup selector the same as a toggle switch? What's the difference between a toggle switch, and a three way pickup selector?

So I plan on buying this guitar, I was just wondering. I know that toggle switch works as a kill switch, as long as it has two volumes. How about pickup selector does that work too? For example, a guitar that has two pickups and two volumes knobs. Will the pickups selector be able to act as kill switch, if it is a three way switch pickup selector? Or should I just replace the pickup selector with a toggle switch?
Thank you in advance

I think you should be able to just use it like a killswitch if you turn one of the volumes down.

Sorry to clarify this, because the guitar cost so much and i have to order it. So a three way switch, that is NOT a toggle switch will act as a kill switch to.

Turn one pup's volume all the way down, and the other on normal.

Also works as a wah pedal with tone.



hmmm never thought of trying that... mostly because I just realized I only have one tone nob lol.
