    What does the "pickups switch" do?

    Thanks

    In active mode:
    • When the pickups-switch is towards the jack, it uses the blend-knob to control the blend of the pickups.
    • When the pickups-switch is away from the jack, the blend-knob has no function. Both pickups are active with an equal mix.

    In passive mode:
    • The blend, bass, treble, mid, and mid-frequency knobs are all disabled. Volume and passive-tone knobs are the only ones active.
    • When the pickups-switch is towards the jack, only the bridge-pickup is active.
    • When the pickups-switch is away from the jack, both pickups are active with an equal mix.

    Hope that helps.
