"The toggle in the upper horn is the pickup selector switch. The main 3 knobs control Master Volume, Master Tone and EQ level. The 3 smaller knobs are part of the Ibanez EQ Tone System. They are center notched to accurately provide plus or minus 15db of gain in three frequency bands: Bass/Mid/Treble. The red LED is a Power Indicator for the Active EQ's 9-volt battery. The lower toggle is a By-Pass Switch that turns the EQ System On or Off, the other two toggles are Tri-Sound switches for bridge and neck pickup parallel-tap-series switching."
