3 way silent/kill switch


Recommended Posts

You're probably largely hearing the tapping sound of the deselected pickup being coupled acoustically back into the selected pickup, which a per-pickup kill circuit probably wouldn't do much to combat. With enough gain you'll hear yourself tapping on all parts of the guitar through any one pickup.

That said, if you want to experiment with the concept, a 3-position 2-pole Tele-style blade switch can be wired to behave as a de-selected-pickup-signal-killer.. Wouldn't work with a Les Paul-style toggle switch though.
