Re: "Hot Swapping" Guitars

I was wondering what is the best (safest!) way to swap guitars
when playing through an amp.
Is it best to:
1) Turn the amp off, plug in the other guitar, switch the amp on
2) "Hot swap" them. i.e. just turn the amp vol down and swap over
while the amp is still switched on.
If the amp has a Standby switch, I use that. Otherwise, I just pull the
cable out of the amp input, switch guitars and plug it back in. Pulling
the cable creates an instant mute with minimal popping. I don't think
it's necessary to power the amp down.
