[GEAR] I’m thinking of installing a killswitch, but I don’t have a ton of experience with customization.
I recently picked up a J5 squier telecaster. I love it. Definitely fights the stigma that squiers aren't great guitars. Anyways, I want to install a killswitch between the volume knobs. I'm pretty handy and I know how to solder. I've just never owned another guitar that I've wanted to customize. Everything I've googled brings up something unrelated or from 2007.
Any help would be great, hoping to make this my weekend project. Thanks.

EDIT: I ordered a killswitch and wiring kit from iron age accessories. The button itself is gold in color with a white led. Which brings me to my next purchase.
With the wiring kit, they give you a toggle switch to power on the led in the button. There is no back plate on my guitar and I don't want another toggle switch on the front of my guitar.
So I bought a stereo out put Jack so the led will only be powered on when the guitar is plugged in.
Thanks for everyone with their knowledge, Google skills, tips, and opinions.
For anyone who is interested, ill post an update after I install the switch. I may or may not make a tutorial video, but I'll take pics for sure.
As always, there's 4 things to remember:
1) Be nice 2) Keep these guitar related 3) As long as you have a genuine question, nothing is too stupid :) 4) Come back to answer questions throughout the week if you can (we're located in the sidebar)
Go for it!
