I was thinking about putting a killswitch on my guitar for some morello-esque guitar work. About how much would it cost to have one installed?

You can do it yourself, it's pretty simple as far as wiring goes. Not to mention you could pretty much use anything as a switch, just go to your local autozone or something and they a bunch of cool switches for like 3 or 4 bucks. Unless you don't want to do any of that yourself, I'd get an estimate from your local guitar shop.

If you don't have a soldering iron, your cost will go up about 400%.
For 15 or 20 bucks you can get a good soldering kit with the iron, solder, a stand, extra tips and a desoldering pump. I'd also recommend buying an old VCR or something like that to practise soldering. You can probably find some wire you'll need for the killswitch in there too.

Just to recap; the switch is about 4 bucks, soldering kit is about 15 bucks, and an old VCR could be anywhere from 0 to 5 bucks if you buy one from a second hand store.

Forgot about any holes he might have to make, and it he doesn't have a drill or router, this could be hard.

What do you have to do to install a kill switch
Do you connect it to the pickup or volume pot or...?

Didn't Kerry King use MGs at some point?

I think he just endorses them because he likes sacks of money
