A revolution for electric guitarists
Non-sequential one-stop control gives vast tonal flexibility for Electric Guitars
| ||A revolution for electric guitarists the Free-Way 6-Position Toggle Switch can be installed at manufacture or retro-fitted. Delivering vast tonal flexibility from a single control, the guitarist is able to select any of the instrument's pickup settings non-sequentially.|
|Expansive pickup configurations from a single control|
When the Free-Way switch is fitted to a guitar, the guitar maintains its classic looks and condition, and the pickup selector feels like a normal 3-way toggle giving Neck, Neck and Bridge and Bridge selections.
However, the Free-Way Switch, with its revolutionary non-sequential action, also moves into another three forward positions opening up a whole new dimension in natural tone.
|Diverse pickup configurations can be achieved including coil tap, 3 pickup, piezo, series, phase, parallel, HSH, HSS, SSS, Vol/Tone bypass and many more unique custom schemes.|
|The switch features a positive index positional control providing a distinct switching action for fast intuitive changes between positions.|

Free-Way Switch main features:
|High-Quality Materials||The solid construction of stainless steel metalwork, gold plated terminals and glass-filled nylon mouldings have been endurance tested beyond 1 million operations.|
|Positive Index Positional Control||Providing a distinct switching action for fast intuitive changes between positions.|
|Expansive Pickup Configurations|
Vast tonal flexibility from a single control.
Coil-split, 3 pickup, piezo, series, phase parallel, HSH, HSS, SSS and many more custom schemes. Almost infinite possibilities.
|Multiple Gold Plated Solder Pad Terminations||Making installation easy and eliminating noise from mechanical construction.|
|Compact, Concentric Design||Fits directly into 35mm diameter cavity for retro-fit into Les Paul style guitars. |
|Standard Toggle Tip||Available in a nickel or gold finish and can be purchased with a choice of toggle tip colours - cream, black and gold - making it visually indistinguishable from a traditional 3-way toggle switch.|
Two Free-Way models are available
|3x3-05 Free-Way Ultra - The latest version of the Free-Way switch|
The Free-Way Ultra provides 6-position switching with 28 terminal connections for creating the most sophisticated wiring circuits. Each of the 6 positions is accessible and can have almost any pickup arrangement required. The Ultra measures 35mm in diameter and is very compact. It can be retro-fitted to most guitars
|This switch enables pickups (or pickup coils) to be connected in series, in parallel, and out-of-phase with each other so that complex switching functions can be performed all in one place.|

| 3x3-03 Free-Way Original V2|
| ||This multi-function Free-Way switch has been refined to provide circuits for coil-tapping, three pick-up guitars, piezo pickups and HSH and HSS schemes. It has 15 terminal connections providing flexibility for all kinds of variations on the above schemes and scope for custom circuit design. |
|A switch that provides distinct switching action for fast intuitive changes. The gold plated solder pad terminations make installation easy and eliminate electrical noise.|
| ||The 3x3 refers to the general NSF switch assembly in its conventional form. This can be adapted for improving other applications that may benefit from its unique non-sequential movement in situations where, historically, rotary wafer switches have been used.|
