Introduction: How to Make a Cheap, Ugly, and Easy to Remove Guitar Killswitch
Step 1: Materials and Tools
1- a microswitch
nnnn2- a guitar jack
3- a guitar plug
5- a plastic box (i used a 100 business card box)
6- your pickguard
7- solder iron
8- a victorinox
Step 2: Construction
first make the holes in the boxes, with the victorinox, and place the components, first i put the plug in the box, but it probably "hurt" the guitar so i change it for a wire and plug.
Step 3: Wiring
the wiring is very simple, the ground of the jack and plug is connected, and the channel is connected to the first and last pins of the microswitch, and thats all.
Step 4: Modification
the original design wasnt very nice with the jack, so i changed it for a wired plug, and i attached it with tape because i dont want to glue the pickward and i dont want to build another pickguard or similar.
This is my first instructable, so, be nice, i dont speak english very well so be nice with that too, and enjoy the killswitch, im going to add more stuff soon, and upload a finished version of this ugly thing
