    Default Kill Switch Question

    First of all, let me apologize if this has been addressed before. (I hate searching through countless threads...) Just picked up a Wolfgang Special Stealth. Love it!!! But like many of you, I have issues, and now want to get a kill switch. I am in no way capable of doing this myself. My question is.... what would be a reasonable price to pay to have this done?

    Thanks in advance.

    I would imagine this would only take an hour or two of a qualified tech's time. So maybe $50-$150 depending on tech rates in your area?

    Like Jedi said, it really depends on the general cost of guitar luthier services in your area. It a rather easy modification, so it shouldn’t be too expensive

    I'm a day late to the party, but the wiring for a kill switch isn't rocket science. The labor would be drilling and installing the actual switch on your WG.

    When I put an EVH Frankenstein in my late 80's Westone (Japanese superstrat), the coil split switch became useless, so it got rewired into a kill switch. Not the hardest thing ever.

    I put a kill switch in my WGSpecial where the selector switch is and the kill switch where the tone knob was.(never use the tone anyway) No drilling an extra hole and can be put back if need be.

    you and Paul Gilbert my kind of players
    with todays amps and foot switches and pickups who needs a freaking tone knob. I clubbed for 10 years, never touched it.
