Kill switch for Fender Jazz Bass

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Rutgers Bassist, Apr 8, 2004.


  1. Hi, I have a standard fender jazz bass. I want to make a kill switch to totally kill all of the sound. I want to use a push/pull pot, and would like to install it in the tone slot. I want to replace the tone pot with the push/pull one. I was wondering if this is ok to do. Also if it is if anybody has a diagram of the wiring. Would I need to purchase any more wires? And last what kind of solder should I use. Thanks Mark

    Entirely possible just dont wire up the top half of the pot, I believe.

    Why do you want this, counldn't hit the mute on your amp or lower the volume on the bass?
