Upgraded! More wiring options, sturdier construction
The 5-way Megaswitch offers nearly unlimited wiring options for HH, HSH, HSS, and SSS guitars. The circuit board layout makes it easy to customize your sound, and it now accepts standard US-thread screws for retrofitting classic American guitars.
Improved contact and durability
Designed for guitarists, each Megaswitch features heavy-duty construction and the best "feel" of all our lever-action switches. All of the contacts are gold-plated, including the contact rotor. The lever is thinner to fit more pickguards and upgraded to steel so it will not break.
E-Model Megaswitch: Extend your wiring options
The E-Model Megaswitch allows wiring configurations not possible with a standard 5-way switch, including automatic coil-tapping and special hum-cancelling connections. 12 lugs provide twice the wiring options as previous 6-lug versions. Use these extra lugs for alternative tone control or pickup combinations. Extensive and easy-to-follow wiring diagrams are included.
Replicate the functions of a PRS® rotary switch in a 5-way lever switch. It is designed for guitars with two humbuckers. This switch allows series and parallel coil-taps for the inside and outside coils. 7 lugs.
