    My beloved Ibby gsr200 which I (for some reason) keep coming back to, Is now beginning the modification process... Im looking to wire a 3-way toggle switch on her bit I'm not sure how.. I've done some simple soldering here and there, I don't imagine it being to complicated. :eek:

    Its the passive model. I bassically want to bypass the double volume knobs and have:
    master tone>pup toggle<master volume

    Then it's super easy. Ditch one of the volumes, add a Gibson style 1pdt on-on-on switch and rewire the volume pot after the switch. Something like this :

    You only have one tone and one volume so the switch must come first.
    The order between tone and volume doesn't matter.
