Mo-betta than Gibson? Fraid so…

My 2014 Gibson SGJ had a bad switch already???
I had one of these on hand for another project and put it in. Sorry Gibson, your new electronic components are doggy…Nowadays Epiphone is actually better.
I cut the Gibson pots out of the circuit board, reused them and hand wired it all, added red drop caps, treble bleed and CTS pull pots for coil tap too.

I put this in a Warmoth Mooncaster and it fit perfectly.
The switch feels very solid and I don't anticipate any problems.

#1228

By

Verified Buyer


Many older British guitars (like the Burns Nu Sonic guitar and bass for example) had two pickups wired in series. To achieve this, the original switch had open contacts when in center position (To activate one pickup alone, the other one is shortened out). The #1228 type switch is one of a very few switches in this size to make that possible. It is however possible to modify a "standard" Switchc...ft right angle switch to get the same result (mount the smaller contact blades outside, upside down, and re-bend as necessary) , but the #1228 is a drop-in replacement. Highly recommended, and hopefully still available in the near future...

Nice quality part but did not work. Contact blades needed to be adjusted. After adjustment worked fine.

One of the better switches I have tried. It works as a switch should. Only thing is it is a bit plain jane for a really speccy build....

Update to my previous review

By

Verified Buyer


I applied some teflon grease to my switch and after a couple weeks "break in" the switch has become much more smooth. I'm pleased with the functionality and in most cases (where this would be the only switch) the appearance change would be trivial. In my application the difference is more obvious because I also have an original Gibson switch on the same guitar.
