I've used 4 of these switches (supplied in the LP kit) and they all crackled through the amp when the toggle was moved! I put this down to the fact the contacts are merely pressed as opposed to the harder "welded on" contacts found on most other brands. A bit of a weak link really.
This switch is made well, fits perfectly, and works great. I always expect the best from Stew Mac and I am not disappointed.
Ordered the gold version, came with cream and black knobs. Works great, no issues
Does his job properly.
I have used this switch on new builds and my latest install was on my gibson les paul special. It was a direct replacement for the factory installed one that had trouble switching in and out of the neck pickup.
I made the best up grade ever by changing the cheap box style switch made in china that came in the guitar from the factory to this well made 3 way switch from StewMac. I installed a set of golden age humbuckers at the same time. Every thing worked great Thank You StewMac for all of the great products you sell.
I have bought this type of switch from stewmac over the years and have never had any problems from them.
The switch works very well and with its size i was able to use it in an explorer. It comes in the LP kit that is also a great value. You can also use the tech tips and diagrams from the site. Mr.Dan is my hero!!!
I recently purchased this toggle for a les paul rebuild. The toggle works ok except for the fact that the selector wouldn't select the rhythm position. I had to modify (bend) the conectors as they were not uniform. once this was done it worked fine. Maybe mine was just bad. otherwise it works perfectly now. The gold finish is really nice with the cream knob.
