I have a Kramer Striker 300 ST. It has two lever type switches on it along with the volume and two tone controls. One of the levers has 5 positions, it is located toward the bottom of the body. What is used for?

The second switch is above the first switch, it has three positions, what is it used for.

I know, new kid questions...but I'm a new owner of a of a 1986/7 Kramer in beautiful condition. I want to know all about it...

Thanks, Tain'd Angel

Once opon a time,,they lived happily ever after,but not necessarily in that order http://fandalism.com/tenkdeebee or https://www.youtube....SuperScooter126 or https://www.facebook.com/10Kdbmusic

The larger, five-way switch is the pickup selector switch.
From the bridge toward the neck, the pickup selector switch gives you these options:
Bridge Humbucker pickup only
Bridge humbucker mixed with the middle single-coil pickup
Middle single-coil pickup only
Middle single-coil pickup blended with the neck single coil pickup
and,
Neck single coil pickup only.

The smaller three-way toggle switch is, as 10K-DB indicated, a coil tapping switch.
It affects the bridge humbucker pickup only, offering these three options, in order:
Up position, single coil sounds
Middle position, full humbucker sounds
Down position, kill switch (no sound)

:)
Am I alone in this?
