The input jack has a strip of metal that is pushed aside by the cord plug causing it to make contact with another piece of metal, thus completing the circuit and turning the pick-ups "on". When you pull the plug out, the metal pieces seperate and turn the circuit "off". Try www.stewmac.com it is a good sight for schematics. peace......john
