Add a Control Bypass Switch

By RickBeall

I don’t have any tips I invented or are secret, but currently when I wire up a guitar I like to put in a switch which makes the pickups go directly to the output jack, bypassing the volume and tone controls. It is supposed to give you a volume boost. But it is interesting to do if you wonder what you pickups sound like naked without a condom on. Even if you do not hear a difference between this and when you have your tone and volume controls full on, it is a fun way to drop into a louder tone when you are using your tone and volume controls. It is a quick way to get to a tone. What better reference tone can you have but your own pickups without a condom?
