These are the go-to switches for new builds or rebuilds. The advantage of these is that you can buy them from StewMac in bulk and save money. Always good to have a supply of these in your shop.

way better than stock

I bought this to replace a switch in a 15 yr old Mexican Strat. The feel of this switch is much tighter than the stock - the overall quality seems much better than Fender's switch.
