    Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ

    EQ bypass switch (passive tone control on treble pot)
    The EQ bypass control offers precision tonal adjustments, including a switch to choose passive-only operation. When the EQ bypass is activated, the treble tone control knob becomes the global tone control for the passive circuit.
