Hey, Chiogtr4x, I decided to use the switch finally last night. I can tell now that the stock position is definitely a bass boost (like the Route 808 has on the top) for single coil pickups (which is about all I play). BUT that said, I really like the smoother gain sound from the non-stock position. I'm curious to find out what it sounds like louder with others tho. I think i'm doing a jam this sunday. we'll see. The switch will be easy to replace. I'm going by the Shack today to pick up a mini toggle and some more solder to mod it. I'll post pics when I do!
