CRL 5 way lever switch

(Customer's Reviews)

just what i was looking for...


Replaced aging switch of CIJ '50s Strat.

(Customer's Reviews)

I had to replace the original pots and 5 way on my 1997 CIJ '50s Strat. They were corroded and had become intermittent. The guitar was unplayable due to the random grounding out and resulting loud, prolonged bursts of static that would originate from the aging parts. The new switch comes with a simple diagram showing how to wire your Strat in the traditional 1 volume, 2 tone method. No modifications to the guitar were necessary. The pots and switch, along with a new output jack, went in in minutes and the guitar is now a reliable blues and rock machine again. I should have replaced these parts sooner!


Works like it should

(Customer's Reviews)

Detents have just the right feel, better than the 3 way, I think.
