Free-Way Switch: A whole new dimension in pickup switching for electric guitars!

The Free-Way switch was first used on stage during Led Zeppelin's Ahmet Ertegun Tribute Concert where the new Gibson® Jimmy Page Les Paul® Custom was featured during an incredible performance of "For Your Life".

When you first play a guitar with a Free-Way switch, you might not even realize it is there - the guitar doesn't look any diferent and the pickup selector feels just like a normal 3-way toggle giving Neck/Both/Bridge selections. It's only when you realise that the Free-Way switch moves into another three forward positions that you understand what the Free-Way is all about.

Model 3X3-08:

The 3X3-8 is the latest Free-Way Switch, and it's the "secret weapon" to the massive tone arsenal of Nuno Bettencourt's new signature Washburn "Nele" model!

The 3X3-08 models combine 6 position Free-Way switching with a pre-wired cable harness which is factory terminated onto the switch, thus removing the need for any special soldering or the sourcing/preparing of shielded multi-core cable during install. This model is pre-configured for two pickup guitars offering the traditional neck/both/bridge pickup selections in the lower bank but adding both pickups in-series/in-series-out-of-phase/in-parallel-out-of-phase in the upper bank.

The 3X3-08 unlocks the complete tonal range from any two pickup guitar providing the simplest operation together with equally simple and visually undetectable installation.
