Pass on this one

The price is right but that's about it. As with many other reviewers, this switch jumps to the middle position at the slightest bump. I had to buy from a different dealer and eat the loss on this one.

Three Way Nightmare

By

Verified Buyer


Good quality except returns to center with the slightest touch. This was the third one of different makers with the same problem including Gibson OEM, so I guess that you just can't get a good LP switch any more.

But at least this one was the best of the three.

As usual StewMac's prompt customer service and shipping was Outstanding

This was the exact replacement switch for this knock-off Les Paul. Why would you spend anything more for a guitar like this? Although if it's the only thing you order, the shipping makes it a little pricey.

Toggle switch

Not a lot for a three way toggle switch to do. But it has to do it well.....and quietly. This switch has a comforting notch in the middle position, but moves easily to front or rear position with a light touch. Wiring it up is easy. 2 HB 1 Vol 1 Tone, anyway. That's enough knobs for me.


Plenty of diagrams available on the web for whatever you need. Strong, solid and reliable....and you get two switch knobs...one black, one white! Complete with heavy duty knurled fastening ring. Looks very much like the Gibson switch. Bargain!

Fast shipping, though.

It's hard for me to write this, as I love StewMac. But this was really disappointing. Like other reviewers have written; it hops over to the middle position and refuses to stay on either end. Wound up ordering some switchcrafts instead.

Sraight Toggle Switch - Les Paul style.

Verified Buyer


I bought this switch recently to use in a project Les Paul style guitar.

It is excellent quality, and does the job just great! I have no hesitation in recommending any hardware I have bought through StewMac. It is very good quality, at a reasonable price.

Never Again

Looks nice and sounds fine, but its too flimsy and switches to the middle with the slightest touch. Will be replacing, and would never put this in a build for sale. I thought everyone was just being picky, but its true.

Unexpected bonus

By

Verified Buyer


I had to replace my failed stock toggle.

Now I have clean tonal switching on my electric guitar. No clicking that I used to have on my stock toggle switch. And an improved sound came about as an unexpected bonus. I didn't realize that the quality of toggle make and material can affect the sound so much. Excellent product.
