since i never use my tone knob on my ibanez RG i was going to switch it out for a killswitch. if i read the kill switch tutorial correctly all i have really have to do is cut the tone wire and remove it. then solder in the kill switch directly to the volume knob one wire grounded and the other on the prong going to the jack. i just wanted to make sure that this is correct before i started hacking on my baby.

Your question should probably be moved to here because that is where all the experts are at regarding killswitches.

why would you want to remove your tone nob? it could come in handy, just do what i did, just wire up an spdt switch like it says on the tutorial. i did the exact same mod on my RG


to me i never use my tone knob. i would rather replace it with a killswitch then drill a new hole.

But you do know that by removing the tone knob your sound will get dull right? Turn your tone done to "0" and that is how you will sound without a tone knob.

don't give out wrong advice

Removing your tone knob (AFAIK) lets more high frequencies through making the guitar sound a bit brighter, like turning the knob up from 0 to 10. I've never compared a guitar without one to a guitar with a tone, but I don't think it would make that much of a difference.

I do think you should drill a new hole, tone knobs are fun. Turn it down and screw around on your clean channel.

Your'e right there, I do stand corrected. You will get more high frequencies coming through without the cap. But definately taking out the tone pot will change your sound, perhaps for the better but perhaps not. It doens't hurt to try I guess as it can always be put back.
