So I have a Les Paul. And an idea came to me. I could turn the treble volume all the way down, and keep the rhythm at the normal volume. Then, using the pickup selector, switch from rhythm to treble real fast, making a sort of killswitch.

Would this hurt my guitar in any way? Because it sounded kinda cool when i tried it a couple times.

Thanks.

no, why would it?
only thing i can think if is if you do it too hard and the switch snaps off.

alot of guitarists use that in rock and its fun to play around with!

it can, the selector switch came unglued on my LP because of that, and I need to get it fixed.

I think he means, like screw up the pickups or something.

But as for that, no, you can't screw up anything accept like he said, you might mess up your switch if you do it too hard, but nothing drastic.

The actual electronic business of switching the pickups wont be a problem, you could just wear out the switch that's all
Why did Pat Metheney cross the road? He didn't, his hair got in the way

Tones of rock guitarists use this... its fine just don't put to much pressure on the switch when you do it

Tom Morello does exactly this.

And as mentioned, it only wears down the switch, if anything.
