Mad Hatter Guitar Products has launched its innovative new Luminator switch. 

The latest creation from the Arizona-based company is an LED touch capacitance switch that, when touched, activates a relay circuit board - the Luminator Switch Board - that redirects your analog signals through three independent switches.

The system is available in four different incarnations:

The Luminator TEN is designed specifically for HSH guitars, and provides humbuckers in all five positions, including both humbuckers together. Users can touch the Luminator switch and change to “Strat Mode,” which shifts the volume pot from 500k to 250k, and delivers single coil sounds across all five positions.

The Luminator 4/3 is for HSS guitars. In this mode, touching the Luminator switch shifts the volume pot from 250k to 500k, and offers four new sounds, including single pickups in series.

The Luminator 3/3 is for SSS guitars. Here, a touch of the Luminator switch shifts the volume pot from 250k to 500k, and places the single pickups in series.    

The Luminator IBZM is for dual humbucker guitars, shifts the volume pot from 500k to 250k and provides single coil sounds in all five positions.

The Mad Hatter Guitar Products Luminator switch is available now for $209.99.
