Bourns Model PDB183-GTR guitar potentiometer with push-pull switch provides the ability to upgrade switching capabilities and volume or tone controls.

From a single 18 mm package, guitarists can control multiple functions such as split-coil switching for humbucking (double-pole) pickups or stacked single-coil pickups, active electronics activation, and pickup phase switching.

Model PDB185-GTR is an innovative guitar potentiometer that facilitates operating active electronics for the control of tonal quality, pickup switching and activating sound-effect circuits.  It uses a mechanical latching switch action similar to that of a spring-loaded ball point pen.  The guitarist can simply push the knob to activate the switch and push again to deactivate.
