SH1. Standard switching with 3 positions, no splitting, Megaswitch T

This is the simplest standard switching system for guitars that have a single coil on the bridge and Humbucker on the neck. The switch has 3 positions and operates the bridge both parallel, and the neck. Each has its own tone control. The Megaswitch T is ideal for this application.

SH2. Five positions with Humbucker splitting, outer coil, Megaswitch E+

This switching system is for guitars with a single coil on the bridge and a Humbucker on the neck. The Humbucker can be split while the outer coil remains active. The inner coil is short-circuited. The Megaswitch E+ is ideal for this purpose. Position 3 is buzz-free when the magnetic polarity is configured as follows: S-SN or N-NS.

SH3. Five positions with Humbucker splitting, inner coil, Megaswitch E+

This switching system is for guitars with a single coil on the bridge and a Humbucker on the neck. The Humbucker can be split while the inner coil remains active. The outer coil is short-circuited. The Megaswitch E+ is ideal for this purpose. Position 3 is buzz-free when the magnetic polarity is configured as follows: N-SN or S-NS.

SH4. Five positions with switching in series, Humbucker splitting, outer coil, Megaswitch M

This switching system is for guitars with a single coil on the bridge and a Humbucker on the neck. It allows both pickups to be switched in series which creates a louder, fuller tone. The Humbucker can be split while the outer coil remains active. The inner coil is short-circuited.

The Humbucker can be split while the outer coil remains active. The inner coil is short-circuited. The Megaswitch M is ideal for this purpose. If a buzz-free sound is required in position, the following magnetic polarity (from the bridge to the neck) is required: N-NS or S-SN.

SH5. Five positions with switching in series, Humbucker splitting, inner coil, Megaswitch M

This switching system is for guitars with a single coil on the bridge and a Humbucker on the neck. It allows both pickups to be switched in series which creates a louder, fuller tone. The Humbucker can be split while the inner coil remains active. The outer coil is short-circuited.

The Megaswitch M is ideal for this purpose. If a buzz-free sound is required in position 2, the following magnetic polarity is required: N-SN or S-NS.
