why would you do this? sorry i just dont understand why


The 18v mod changes the characteristics of the pickups so you can tell a pretty big difference. The 18v mod gives them more of a high output passive feel. Doing this is basically like having 4 different pickups in your guitar.

Bridge 9v or 18v
Neck 9v or 18v

Example sometimes i like to chug using the 9v setting but pop into 18v for leads. Or do my clean stuff in 18v and my metal in 18v. Its all there at the flick of a switch.

Its basically giving you the ability to have more versatility. Plan and simple.

Also there is slight pop when you switch voltages. When playing in the gain channel you can barely hear it especially while playing. But on the clean channel it will be noticeable. So i usually turn my volume down/off on the pickup and then make the switch if im playing clean. For the metal channel strum the guitar and make your switch or you can turn the pickup down first your choice. Its basically like your unplugging your guitar and plugging it back in again really quick because of the slight connection lose and voltage change.

And theres not a way to get rid of the pop without some type of buffering circuit which i dont have the room or the time for lol

So fair warning didn't want it to scare ya
