    20th Anniv. Inbound

    I found a 20th Anniversary Silhouette HH hardtail with piezo that needed to get to my house. But I had it shipped straight to Pete DuBaldo first for a mod.

    It's on its way to me now with some new tricks up its sleeve. Pete replaced the 3-way toggle pickup selector switch with a Free-Way 6-position toggle switch. One side has the original, factory pickup options. The other has a single-coil bridge option, single-coil neck option, and both humbuckers wired out-of-phase as the final option.

    I'll be sure to post some pictures after it arrives. Meanwhile, back to obsessively refreshing that tracking page...

    Very cool! It'd be really cool to hear how the Free Way switch works for you!

    My opinion is that it's a nice feature to double the amount of switching options without drilling a hole or wiring a push/pull. In this situation a push/pull would not have worked as the two volume & the tone controls are mounted on a PC board along with the piezo electronics. A minimal amount of routing (lower left edge in picture) was needed for the new switch to fit, this may not be necessary in some models.
