Hello. I am looking for a friend. Actually, my guitar teacher. He acquired a 1977 X230 with the maple cap, five position tone circuit, two pots, and two toggles.
On the site, there is a picture of what the five tone positions do, but it would be nice to know what the toggles do also.
Does anyone know what the function of the two toggles was?

Look at the bottom of this page for a part of an old catalogue that lays out the controls on the Omegas.

Lead color switch?
Interesting. I am assuming that is a boost circuit of some kind.

You sir are correct but it does add something to it tone wise.

The lead color switches are just capacitors, not a boost or anything. From what I see, anyhow.
