There isn't a killswitch on the black manson. That's the pick up selector.

Contact Alex Barnett as he knows how to wire it in that way, if you're looking for schematics.
And yeah Phill's right on the Blackie there isn't a killswitch at all.

i thought that, as they is not enough switches of the sustainer, fuzz factory, wah probe, selector & kill switch, but i have seen an old version of sing for absolution where he does use the kill switch. either that or he has two volume pots with one off for that part

I'll give it a go when i've got the chance to.
only one way to find out.

Edit: might even be not soldering the middle lugs together. I'll try that first then the original way.

I've always thought it was a normal toggle switch but I may be wrong too, actually while you're on the subject has anyone actually seen Matt use the FF on the guitar ? One of the few times I know of is this performance where he uses it briefly in the intro of Hysteria...

If you didn't link the middle two together then how would that work? The principle is that you're shorting hot to ground

@ the OP: wire the switch like that in parallel with the output jack (don't put it in series with anything )

Thank you very much Hooglebug.
I understand the picture now. You have the normal way: Hot to Jack. And you put a second hot way on killer. And middle position is the only one where earth touch the hot, so that cut.

Thanks

(sorry for mistakes I'm not English...)
