Re: OT: Kill switch for el guitar - design ideas?


Since there are many guitar and audio wiring wizards on this list I'd
like to ask for ideas on kill switch playing.

How about installing a metal (preferably copper) scratchplate on the guitar? Then with a suitable multiway 'superswitch' (I'm assuming a strat style guitar) it would be relatively trivial to wire it so the circuit, to one or more pickups, is completed *only* when your fingers are touching both strings and scratchplate.

I believe David Torn has his Koll guitar wired in a similar fashion.
