Very Happy

By

Verified Buyer


Rewired a 1976 Telecaster and very happy with with the results. Put in new pots, new caps and a four way switch to series the neck and bridge pickups in position four. I also lined the cavities and back of the pick guard with copper foil. It sounds great. Searched the internet for better prices for all components and couldn't find better prices.

Poor Quality Control

By

Verified Buyer


I got a bad switch. At first I thought I made a mistake in wiring but after going over everything several times I looked at switch and contact was too wide and touched adjacent contact in position 4. I had to file off where switch lever touched plate edge until it no longer made improper contact. Good switch after that. You'd think Oak would QC their stuff before sending it out.

New Tele Tone

By

I love the fourth position sound (pickups in series) that this brings to the table. It gives a humbucker sound to your Telecaster, gives a great Woman Tone impression as a result! The wiring diagram was spot on and easy to understand.

A word of warning

By

Verified Buyer


To anyone wanting to mount this switch through a guitar body rather than on a telecaster control plate, there's a bit of an issue with this switch. The switch throw is very long and the contact points inside are of very tight tolerance. This means that if you mount it through a guitar body, the switch might not sit up high enough to reach it's full length of travel with the switch cap on and the mounting screws in the way. I ended up having to buy and countersink the mounting screws and shave off some of the inside of the body cavity to get it to function correctly.

Enhanced two very different Teles

By

Verified Buyer


I'm using this four-way switch in two project guitars: one is a from-scratch Tele built around a Stew-Mac solid ash body, and the other is a Fender Thinline with a semi-hollow mahogany body. I made two amendments to the wiring diagram: adding a ground wire between the bodies of the two pots; and wiring the black bridge lead directly to the switch. Adding the fourth dimension has been a nice enhancement to both Teles.

Great Grigsby!

Great switches. I have only ever received one bad (faulty from mfg.) switch and it was not from Stew Mac. Not quite as nice as a CRL but they don't make a 4-way.

The real thing

I had bought a switch from another supplier and when I got it, it looked the same. When I went to install it, before I got it all soldered, it fell apart. This one installed great and now I have series option for lead work.
