I've haven't found much on these forums as to what the Omega lead and rhythm switches do, any further info is appreciated.

On the rotary switch, setting #3 is where the color switches make the most difference on sound. Setting #1 it makes a little difference, but not a lot. Is that everyone else's experience also?

Thanks, I already have that saved, it's great info on the rotary switch for sure.

But what I'm after are details on the function of the color switches and their relationship to the positions on the rotary switch (what they do and how they should respond in each rotary switch setting). The brochures don't say anything on the color switches that I could find.

This is how it should be wired, stock.

Obviously the switches are on the bottom of this photo. I'm hoping you're smart in the way of guitar wiring! Thoughts?
