Nice and useful

I´ve bought this item just to simplify my HH choices.. Sanded the post a little bit in order to give enough room for a "Strat" cap. Once soldered, works very nice, without noisy transitions. But, what impressed me (the most) was his sturdy construction and its clean defined lugs. Many diagrams to solder by yourself if you have the skills!

Excellent Replacement

I used this in a vintage vibe Squier Strat. Each position has a good solid feel with no crackle.

Tough switch!

I installed this in my Strat and have soldered and re-soldered it, trying various wiring setups. Since then, I've been flicking this switch like mad, trying all the pickup combinations. So far, this thing has withstood all the abuse I've thrown at it. These come with the mounting screws so no need to buy them!

Totally Recomended

Quality switch, quiet and reliable operation after install, if you are looking for a great 5 position switch look no further this is it.

It's Ok

Honestly, it did not feel that sturdy to me, comparing it to some of the ones I've come across on Ibanez guitars. Time might prove me wrong though, we'll see. My complaint is not about the product itself though, it's more about the diagram provided with it. It's reversed, or mirrored. Had to scratch my head for a long time and search for other diagrams online to figure it out. It confused me. That's why I gave it 4 stars
