One of my biggest obstacles over the past 20 years has been guitar picks!
Picks felt foreign and unwieldy right from the get-go. I didn't feel as connected to the instrument and it was easier to lose track of my strings. So rather than work hard, develop skill and master the pick, I became steadfastly opposed to their existence. I would lobby about the unnecessariness of picks to anyone who would listen. In hindsight, this was an obvious self-defence mechanism. I was only fooling
So, i want to get a Fernandes sustainer, but i still want to use my neck and bridge pickups.
I was wondering if there was a way can wire the sustainer to the toggle switch so it will activate regardless of pickup position.
Any help would be greatly appriciated^^

My hiatus is officially over and it's time for an update.
Since my last post I:
moved my family out of one house and into another,had a serious bout of bronchitis and pneumonia,was promoted at work,turned 40,lost over 25 pounds (including 1.5" from my neck, 2" from my chest and 4" off my waist),and suffered a ligament injury to the thumb on my fret hand, which still hasn't fully healed.
Even if I had the time or inclination to play
One of the easiest and most expensive ways to motivate yourself and practice more is (you guessed it!) buy a new guitar.
Justifications for the investment:
you can't wait to pick it up and hold ityou want to play it non-stopit's more comfortable/easier to play than your current guitarit provides a better tonal range for expressing yourself musicallyyou haven't purchased a new guitar in almost 5 yearsthis is the Summer you turn 40you recently received a
