What Guitar is this? no photos of headstock...

Recommended Posts

Hi, can you explain to me what the extra smaller switch is? I do not see it on other ones of the same model. Is it due to the pickups being replaced? 

Thanks!

Small add-on switch, aftermarket. Owing to the replaced pickups, could be a phase reversal switch or for some active circuitry, like boost.

It's an old thread but maybe the information is useful anyway. 

Those pickups look like Seymour Duncan P-Rails. They are a combo of the Hot Rail and P90 pickups. The switch (if connected the way it's intended) will let you swithch between humbucker, single coil or P90. 

SD also have an additional pickup frame to go with these pickups, where there is a switch built into the frame. Having one for each pickup would let you set your pickups to any combination.
