Helldunkel Posted October 8, 2010 Report Share Posted October 8, 2010 I was recently installing one and took pics, maybe this can be useful for some members, cheers As a reference, I am using some Shielded Guitar Circuit Wire from stewmac, in my case the single conductor wire available here: http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Electronics,_p...ictures#details So you can find a killswitch in any hardware store really, you dont have to ground the switch but its always better, so in this case I am using a simple on/off interruptor which has 2 connections + and - (this thype of switch is not polarised so it does not matter in which hole you place the shield and the hot wire. Start by stripping the wire this way so that you seperate the shield and the hot copper wire in the center. Then add some solder on both cables and simply connect the shield and the + in the holes. RED = hot Green = ground Now if your guitar cavity has enough room, try and find a place to drill a hole for the switch which does not interfear with your playing, on this picture you can see the back of the switch with the + and - sticking out from it... The bad thing to do is to connect the wire to the jack so you want to connect it to the volume pot, in my case I have add the + (red) wire to the extremity of the volume pot in which the main switch connects and the - (green) is the ground which is then soldered on the back of the pot... Thats all you have to do, now your guitar is cool! I recently changed the switch thype for a different design, having fun experimenting...
