Now you know what you are paying for.
- After installing this upgrade in my guitar, I stayed up all night playing it.
- It's almost absurd how many unique tones you get from this upgrade and a set of pickups.
- Some of the switches change the sound of the guitar so much its like a completely different guitar. A top quality unit.
- My upgraded guitar is now the best sounding guitar I've ever owned. It has so much more to offer; country, metal, blues - it's incredible. Every pickup tone is useful. I'm getting more session work because of these ultra-twangy tones.
- WOW! This upgrade is awesome! I had no idea so many different tones were hidden inside my guitar.
- One of my guitar buddies came over. He started playing the upgraded guitar and for about an hour I couldn't communicate with him because he kept going through all the pickup switch tone combinations.
- Ever since the upgrade, my playing style has exploded one hundred fold! I've been looking for this for years.
- This lets you Get Amazing Tones Without Changing Your Pickups. For all smart players who insist on quality sound.
- I am SO pleased with the upgrade. The standard 5-way blade switch is an 8-pack of Crayolas when compared to your upgrade which is the 98-pack with built in sharpener. I now have colors I didn't even know I wanted. Do I need EACH of the additional tones? No, of course not; but there are many new tones which — now that I have heard them — I cannot live without.
- The only thing I don't like now is trying to decide which pickup tone to use for any given song!
