This guitar has two different wiring configurations, one with the tone knob in the up position and another with it in the down position. When the volume knob is pulled up, the Hi-pass filter is on. When the tone knob is down and the pickup selector switch is in neck position, the neck pickup is selected. When the switch is in center position, both the neck and bridge pickups are selected. When the switch is in bridge position, the bridge pickup is selected. When the tone knob is pulled up and the pickup selector switch is in neck position, the bridge side of the neck pickup is selected. When the switch is in center position, the bridge side of the neck pickup and the neck side of the bridge pickup are selected. When the switch is in bridge position, the neck side of the bridge pickup is selected.
With the guitar held in the playing position, there are two knobs near the lower bout of the guitar. The knob closest to the end of the body is the tone knob, and the knob closer to the neck is the volume knob. The tone knob also works as a coil tap switch, and the volume knob also works as a high pass filter switch. There is a three-way pickup selector switch between these two knobs.
