so i was wondering if doing the whole tom morello thing of muting one pick up(thus making a killswitch) and switching between the two using the pick up selector ....will that screw up my guitar in anyway?

p.s i play a epiphone LP100 if that helps
youre not muting it, you turn the volume down to 0. Muting is a technique.

But its totally safe, unless you manage to break the pickup selector.
Gibson Les Paul std faded, Godin LG
Marshall jcm900
Keeley ds1, maxon od808, boston tu500, RMC Wizard
watch out that you dont snap your pickup selector with the LP100

it happens.
I do it all the time on my step bro's Sammick LP copy. And I'd do it on my own guitar if it had two volume knobs.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.
