great switch

Ordered the CRL 5 switch in part based on user reviews. The switch exceeded expectations. Rock solid movement. To me, it feels better than a stock Fender switch. And I have played a few. The wiring diagram was handy - basic but clear. My only complaint was shipping. It cost nearly as much as the switch and it took the max. of the 3-4 weeks suggested. That is not reasonable nowadays. No excuse for shipping to take more than 14 days, Ohio to BC.

CRL Lever switch

These are the go-to switches for new builds or rebuilds. The advantage of these is that you can buy them from StewMac in bulk and save money. Always good to have a supply of these in your shop.

way better than stock

I bought this to replace a switch in a 15 yr old Mexican Strat. The feel of this switch is much tighter than the stock - the overall quality seems much better than Fender's switch.
