Product Description

ID: 141Kill (Stutter) Switch K1 kit — for LP

This Kill (Stutter) Switch kit is designed for the Les Paul style guitar. It replaces the stock 3-way switch which is no longer functional after upgrading the instrument with our switch products. This high quality switch is rated at 1,000,000 cycles mechanical life for extended use without premature failure. Why use an "el cheapo" switch that you will have to replace every few months?

Special Note: Instrument with any of these items, our products do not include or use them:

  • Greasebucket circuit
  • Passing lane switch
  • Personality cards
  • Push-push mini switch
  • S1 Switch
  • TBX or mid boost circuit
  • Any special controls beyond the standard 3-way or 5-way switch

    1/2" (12mm) diameter hole mounting

Tools You Need To Assemble and Install This Product

To install this product, you will need one or more of the following tools (not supplied with purchase). Purchaser assumes all risk of liability with respect to the purchase, installation and use of this product.

  • Soldering iron (25 watt is recommended) with fine tip, rosin core solder
  • Wire cutters / wire strippers, regular pliers

How To Install This Product

To install this product, you need to remove the old 3-way switch and wiring. You install the included wiring in the body cavity to traverse from the 3-way switch location to the input jack. Temporarily removing the pickups and moving them out of the way simplifies installing the K1 switch wiring. The K1 switch has screw mounting terminals where you insert the stripped red and black wires - one wire attaches to each terminal.

Use the included two grey wire nuts (71B) to attach the other end of the K1 switch wire to the input jack. Red to the signal connection, black to the ground connection.

Other Information

Notes: Ask questions before purchasing. Purchaser assumes all risk of liability with respect to the installation and use of these products.

This switching system cannot be used with active (battery-powered) pickups or pizeo pickups.

Active (i.e., battery-powered) pickups manufactured by Bartolini, EMG, Seymour Duncan, etc. will not work with our growing family of high performance patented Pickup Switch UpgradeTM products. These active pickups use a design that prevents any of the pickups from being put into series because it sends -9VDC back to the first pickup, shorting out the circuit. Although some manufacturers now sell "add on" products to give you some of the functionality that our products automatically provide, this design limits their versatility and increases the cost to the musician. Many people who have tried these products remove them because they are "too sterile sounding". Anything that uses batteries will likely go dead at a crucial time - like when you're performing or in the recording studio. Bill Lawrence was right when he said, "Batteries belong in flashlights."
