alright, first off, i have no intention of doing
this, as i would imagine it being hard to do.

Lets say, you rigged your guitar to have 2 outputs,
one for each pickup, and you had 2 amplifiers,
one on a clean setting, one on a dirty, would you
be able to run it so that one amp will work when
one pickup is selected, and switch amps and pickups
with just your toggle switch?

if that made any sense.

Yup, it'd work.
AMP:
5150 combo
GSP1101 + Tech 21 PE60

GUITARS:
ESP LTD M-255 w/ SD Full Shred
Kramer Vanguard w/ JE-1000 active preamp
Douglas WF-150sn w/ GFS "Hot Lead" set

EFFECTS:
Bos SD-1 (boost)
AMT DT-2

you can just get a Y adapter for your guitar cable and im pretty sure it can do the same.

Why not just get an A-B box?


i dunno, theres lots of things i COULD do,
i just wanted to know if this would work

and this way, if you had like, EMG 81/60,
you could change it with just a toggle
switch.

its just a thought

Okay, I've just re-read your first post. Sorry, I didn't get it first time around.

You could basically wire it to route one pickup to one amp, then the other to a second amp. You'd need a DPDT, not a conventional three-way toggle. Then from that, instead of wiring to two jacks, use something like a three-pin XLR or similar so you can have a bunch of connections in ONE cable, so it doesn't get cluttered.

What about leaving the amps on for ages and the noise that would make?

EDIT EDIT: Just use a stereo socket, with a 6.3mm jack stereo lead to a L-R splitter.

Stereo output jack and just wire the switch accordingly. The only problem is that when you flick the switch, you might hear it through your amp, unless your amp is idling at the time, negating any advantage of such a wiring circuit. If that is the case, an A/B box is the best bet instead.

That being said, my Parker essentially has that with the piezo and mag pickups with the toggle to switch between. I can hook up to 2 amps with a stereo cable and all seems fine when switching back & forth. However, I don't know if additional noise suppression circuitry has been used to allow that. Try it and see. The only thing you will be out if it doesn't work is the jack.
