Great switch, just make sure you have the right cover plate.

Top quality product, with no issues so I give it five stars, HOWEVER, it didn't fit the cover plate in my Japanese made strat copy (surprise surprise) so choosing between altering the switch or altering the cover plate, I chose the easier route (in my mind) and altered the cover plate. Didn't take long and no big deal, but something to consider none the less.

excellent switch

This is an excellent switch. I have never had a problem with CRL 5/3 way switches.
They are large switches. Fine for American made guitars. I have found that when used on some
Metric guitars, the electronic cavities are slightly shallow. I just route the area in the cavity, to fit the switch. There is usually plenty of room to deepen the cavity. I use these more that any other switches. Switchcraft are my other favorites. Stick with these and you will probably never have a problem. JW Guitars.

Replaced aging switch of CIJ '50s Strat.

By
(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!

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