Tele need a new switch

My sons 20+ year old Telecaster had a problem with crackling, sound was low, meaning not very loud and the switch not actual switching the pickups. So on Stewart Macdonald look up a switch for a three way switch for the Tele. Found this CRL 3 way lever switch. Ordered, it came in a few days. Son and I replaced it and wow changed the tone of this kind of bright Tele immediately. Great replacement and restored my confidence in my electrical soldiering ability! Highly recommend to replace older enclosed lever switches in the older Mexican Telecasters.

this switch is smooth in its operation. I've used a number of switches over the years and this is the one I have come to rely upon. I can order this from the folks at Stew-Mac and know that it is going to be a great product at a great price. All my "Tele" style guitars get this switch.....

Solid and reliable

Excellent, rock solid switch. Note that the stagger of the switch points is different than most wiring diagrams (meaning the first on the left is below first on the right as opposed to shown in diagrams). Standard wiring points in standard order so no big deal.

The top hat switch tip fit was so tight without modifying it I was worried about damaging the switch but was going with the round tip anyway.

Was easy to install and fit just fine in PRS custom SE. Seems like a solid switch, definitely an upgrade from stock switch.

Another quality product that is worth the extra cost. A suggestion for a diagram with a note on the switch commons, would help first time users of this part.

This is mostly a review about Stewmac's customer service... I bought this switch and it happens so that I received a faulty one. I contacted Stewmac's customer service and 2 or 3 days after, a new switch arrived at my door through Fedex in Canada... Couldn't ask for more !
