Just what I needed

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.

Just what I was looking for!

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!

crackling switch

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.

Fine switch

This switch is made well, fits perfectly, and works great. I always expect the best from Stew Mac and I am not disappointed.

fixed my gibby

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.

3 way switch up grade in a ibanez sz 720 guitar

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.
