Solid Switch

No problems, possibly suggest different plastic tip besides just barrel or blade style tips.

works great

I am so glad you are closing out the imported 3 way for tele...I didn't read instructions...but this switch is the standard, both in quality and set up.

Glad to see CRL switches at StewMac.

I use CRL switches on all my custom guitars. They're the best, period. At the customers request I replaced the 5 way SuperSwitch on a 1997 Big Apple Double Fat Strat with the CRL 3 way switch. Now it switches like a Les Paul. He loved it, I loved the perfect fit and quality construction. Can't beat them.

Glad to have these available through Stew-Mac. CRL is all I'll use on my customer's instruments. Or my own, for that matter.

3-way switch

You need a reliable switch that has stood the test of time.They 'clunk' into position nicely. Quality. They just happen to feature in most wiring diagrams of Big F style guitars. With guitars, the quality on the inside counts more than the pretty on the outside. The best choice.

There is a lot of junk on the market. CRL is the real deal for a five way. (unless you need a super switch) They do need to include an aged white knob along with the black and white.

Improving a Squier Standard Telecaster

I've modified a Squier Standard Telecaster, I've changed the lever switch (China or Korean), installing a CRL Lever Switch 3 way. I can say only wow!

Really Solid Switch!

Has a great solid feel to it and doesn't pop/crackle when you switch positions like some do. Also note i got the 3 way version for a Strat, because i wanted the vintage feel, however in order to get the in between sounds, a 3 way switch has to wedged between 1 and 2 and 2 and 3, but on this switch i can't get it to wedge at all, it does wedge with a match stick between 2 and 3, which i'm not blaming stew mac or CRL, i knew it would be a pain to get those sounds, i just wanted the vintage feel haha
