    Oinky going in for a killswitch...

    Hello fellow formites - I hope you are all doing well.

    I dropped off Oinky at Noll Guitars in Cranston, Rhode Island today. I'm having a killswitch installed like Eddie has on his model that he's been seen playing out with.

    I ordered a Sanwa arcade button:





    $125 total...should be ready in about a week!

    Very cool! You're a brave man modding that pink beauty like that. Don't think I could bring myself to let someone take a piece out of that top...

    Thanks, man!

    I almost backed out at the last minute before I left today! But, they are a reputable luthier shop, and I am keeping her so resale value matters not!

    Sure Headstock, I found them at: Arcade Spare Parts for amusement and gaming machines Sanwa Sega Namco Konami Weiya Delta Andamiro (arcadespareparts dot com)

    I ordered the Sanwa brand. I chose a threaded button instead of the push in. You saw the screw-in orange ring on mine? This is what the push-in looks like:



    They are around $2.00 each and $8 shipping from asia.

    Yikes! I don't think I'd be able to put a hole in a guitar. Didn't Eddie copy Buckethead with the arcade button?

    Probably, but didn't they all copy Tom Morello?

    I didn't know that he had one installed. That would make sense though.

    I always assumed that he was using a pickup selector with the neck pickup volume off.

    A brave mod, but I hope you enjoy it - at least the switch is pink!
