PickupBender™ Select X10

The PickupBender™ Select X10 mod adds the two missing pickup combinations (bridge & neck only, and all 3 pickups) to 3-pickup guitars with a standard 5-way selector switch.

Find out what your Strat® type guitar has been missing. Imagine the unique sound of just the neck and bridge pickup on, and the power of having all 3 pickups on together. Works with SSS, HSS, or HSH pickup configurations.

In the past, you had to manually wire and solder the modified circuit and switch in your guitar. Unless you were a skilled guitar tech, the manual installation was a tedious error-prone process.

Now, PickupBender™ makes it simple to install this wiring mod in your guitar without soldering. You don't even need to know how the circuit works, just connect your pickup wires as described in the included user guide and you're ready to rock and roll!

Once you install the PickupBender™ Select X10 mod, it's easy to switch between standard and modified selector switch operation. Just pull the control knob out for the modified selector switch operation, and push the knob in for standard operation.

You can connect the Select X10 mod to either the bridge or neck pickup, depending on how you want the modified selector switch operation to work:
  • When connected to the bridge pickup, the standard neck-only position is a neck-bridge combo, the standard neck-middle position is a neck-middle-bridge combo, and the standard middle-only position is a middle-bridge combo.
  • When connected to the neck pickup, the standard bridge-only position is a bridge-neck combo, the standard bridge-middle position is a bridge-middle-neck combo, and the standard middle-only position is a middle-neck combo.
  • All other positions are the same as the standard selector switch positions.
The Select X10 can also be installed as a straight-to-output (STO) switch. Get the STO installation instructions here. The STO switch (also called a blower switch) sends the pickup's signal straight to the output jack, bypassing all volume and tone controls.
