I have been thinking about getting a new electric guitar for a while and wondered why they use pickup selectors? I really like how my bass guitar has individual volume knobs as it makes it very easy to get different ranges of sound. Why don't more guitars do it this way?
(would it ruin the sound to remove the pickup control and add another volume control?)
A hoopy frood knows where his towel is....
Guitars can be setup with numerous pickup and wiring combinations. It's endless. Here is a few links that can explain better and in more detail. They will reflect on some possiblities and give great explanations and images.
