The best there is!

If you want a lever switch then use a CRL. Thats it. Other brands will work but if you go with a CRL theyll last and last and last. The material is easy to solder to since its not covered in residue like most other switches are.

Great working switch to be sure...

Mechanically this is a beefy nearly indestructible switch. The only issue I had was the schematic for the 3 way 2 pickup set up was not exactly as the switch appeared. Once I got my perspective, I was fine.

Easy on the solder, partner.

This is a great, quality, affordable switch. It works as advertized. The only advice one needs to keep in mind when wiring up this switch is to not glob on the solder, as it can work it's way into the switch control and then the switch won't work. A little solder is all you need. I find that using smaller gauge silver solder works best, with a 30 or 40 watt PENCIL type soldering iron. You can't really use a big pistol grip soldering iron for this type of soldering. Hope this helps.

'69 Tele restoration

A 3 position replacement switch was needed to restore a '69 Tele Thinline to original configuration.This switch was perfect for the job. Easy to wire and very sturdy.

Inexpensive upgrade

I installed this switch on a guitar that had no adjustment capability. All pickups played all the time. Now I have a way to get different sounds with no other alterations and it works great.
