    What does all this mean?  You're getting a tough switch that will last a long time in your instrument and look good doing it!  

    The switch is easy to install. If you have the slightest bit of skill with a soldering iron you can do it yourself. If you do not have that skill, you should have a guitar repair person do it.  The mounting hole is slightly larger than a standard volume or tone pot (12MM vs. 9MM) which means that if you decide to go back to your original setup, you don't have to buy a new pickguard or repair that hole in your wood.

    This package comes with everything:
    (1) Tesi POCO 12mm Momentary Guitar Kill Switch  
    (1) Tesi Quick-Connect wiring Bundle that includes:
         (1) 8" Black/Black ground wire
         (1) 8" Black/White hot wire
         (1) 8" White/Red Power wire with resistor
         (1) 8" 9V Battery Harness with resistor
         (1) On/Off Rocker Switch
    (1) Set of easy-to-follow wiring instructions
    (2) Spare 270 Ohm resistors for custom wiring jobs

    When used with active pickups and/or a stereo output jack (not included) the Tesi POCO does not require the additional on/off rocker switch.

    Each Tesi Guitar Kill Switch is guaranteed against defect for one year from the date of sale.  Contact us for more details.

    The Tesi Switch Difference:
    We test every switch before packaging it.  As a result, the failure rate is less than 1%.  We package the 12MM and larger switches in a custom cut foam block and place in a small box for protection. The box also includes a couple of Tesi Switch guitar picks, as well as all the wiring necessary to install in an active or passive system, and we are always happy to help with installation questions.

    If something does go wrong, our switches have a 1-Year Guarantee against defect or failure.  

    PLEASE NOTE: Do not try to connect the switch directly to a battery. The LED is a 6V bulb and requires a resistor with a minimum value of 270 Ohms to work with a 9V battery.  Using a 9V battery without the resistor voids the warranty on the switch.
