I've used this on an upgrade to a Squire vintage Jazz Bass, '65 Mustang and a soon to be completed Melody Maker style guitar. It is very well made and easy to work with. I get the regular pickup selections plus some new favorites like, both pickups in series (fantastic on the Mustang) and in series out of phase. The latter really nailing the Hendrix 'in between tone".

nice switch I'd be happy to use on high end guitars - some eg wiring diagrams would be helpful for ideas. it's a rotary superswitch and not sure how to translate standard switching layouts into the circular format. No criticism intended here I'll figure it out. Wiring is not my forte :(

Quality switch; awesome actually: but Stewart Mac needs to make some diagrams available to customers to assist in wiring.

These switches are compact and can perform quite complex switching and selecting tasks. They are a little tight when new and not sure how that will play out. Better tight than sloppy however.

These are solid switches with generous solder tabs that are easy to work with. You can do some 3-pickup voodoo with the six-way, like getting the forbidden "Tele" setting, or funky series-parallel wiring.

haven't wired it up yet. A good source of wiring options is Schatten's Advanced wiring projects, available from STEWMAC.
