On/Off switches?

  1. Why do some basses such as the Gibson Nikki Sixx sig have only an on/off switch instead of volume and tone controls? Is there any advantage to this? Is it just done to be different?

    Its just there to flat out kill the sound. I personally dont use the volume knob on my bass. I think Nikki was giong for a bass with just the bair minimum, less to hassel with. Many people leave there volume and tone knobs full on, so this could be a nice feature for them.
