Bumping the pickup switch while playing, an age-old problem….

The frustration of so many guitar players.

The Switchlock Story

When lifelong musician Josh Misko switched from an acoustic to an electric guitar, he fell in love. He was also frustrated because, like so many other electric guitar players, his hand kept hitting the pickup switch and knocking it out of place. Doing some online research, he found he wasn’t the only player with the problem, yet there was no simple solution available anywhere.  

His challenge was clear: how to lock the pickup switch without changing the look, feel, function, or tone of an iconic guitar. With a little ingenuity and the help of accomplished luthier Adam Mendel and entrepreneur Chris Ingram, The Switchlock became a reality. 

This simple tool is poised to make a huge difference for professional and amateur guitarists all over the world.
