    S-1™ SWITCH
    S-1™ SWITCH

    The S-1 switch activates alternate wiring options for even more tonal variations. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, it engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.

    PASSING LANE SWITCH
    PASSING LANE SWITCH

    The Passing Lane switch kicks your sound into overdrive, rerouting the bridge pickup and bypassing the tone circuit for hotter output with enhanced overtones, blowing the doors off your sound. Discretely located between the tone controls, the low-profile push-push switch is easy to activate while resisting accidental triggering.
