Most of the things I get from Stew Mac are really top notch. In this case however, the low quality of this switch is now costing me money in both time & labor as I have to replace it only 2 weeks after the initial install.
I stand fully behind my work, and my customer satisfaction is of utmost importance to me. I will not order another. Warranty work due to faulty parts is costly and destroys my bottom line. So now I will get the genuine Gibson switch. It will cost a little more, but the customer will be happy.
I experienced the same problem than the previous review entitled "almost but not quite". It would not stay firmly enough at one position. When putting it in one position, just shaking the switch puts it back in the middle position. Also, when its in the middle position, the arm is loose and rattles. If the switch is mounted on a hollowbody, the soundboard amplifies the rattle. I ended up installing another brand (more expensive though) on my Epiphone Casino. It might do the job for solid body guitars.
I replaced the switch in my austin les paul (it was one of those little box switches) with this one. Was fairly simple. Used the setup it showed for les paul on the paper that came with it. Only difference i noticed was that there were not quite as many threads sticking through for the nut to screw on. However there were enough and everything works great! no problems
Not yet wired but well built,solid feel,great gold plating.
At a show recently my bass player got a bit over zelous and knocked my backup guitar off it's stand and broke the toggle switch. Got my replacement from stew mac. It works fantastic-and even better they send both black and white switch covers. Orders are always delivered in record time. Stew Mac you rock!
I recently had to replace a switch on a Les Paul epiphone. I liked the fact that the switch came with a black and white toggle head. I need white for my guitar, it was nice to have a choice. JAC/Tulsa
Good quality, terminals take solder readliy. Good positive feel to the switch once installed.
Bought this to replace a noisy switch on my Epiphone LP. Excellent product.
I had a customer with a broken pickup selector on his les paul, orderd the gold one a nd installed works great. My only complaint is the pole seems slightly longer than the original.
I needed to replace the sliding 3way switch on one of my guitars (I dislike them immensely) and this switch from StewMac is much more substantial in terms of weight and construction, and far better looking than any of the others I found. There was also the added benefit of the cream knob which was supplied, which matched the color of my guitar's pickup bobbins nicely. A gorgeous and valuable product!
