Great, solid switch

Have used these on about 10 builds now and never have a problem with installation or operation. They're also fractionally shallower than the more traditional tele and strat switches, so if space is an issue - which it is on my lower profile builds without pick guards - then these are the most compelling option.

Megaswitch S-Model

love this switch; nice & quiet. Just be careful your soldering iron is not too hot. I trashed one and had to get another one. My bad, not the switches fault

Solid switch

There is not a more solidly built Strat style 5-way switch on the market, period. The action is much better than a CTS-style switch, and the Megaswitch seems to "find" the position a little better, and stay there. I use this switch in all three of my Strats now, and I use the 3-way version in my Telecaster.

My new favorite switch

This is one of the best quality switches ive used. Quiet, smooth, easy to solder.

The lug arrangement is different from any other switch, so make sure you transpose diagrams correctly or you'll pull your hair out trying to get it right.

top quality switch

The Megaswitch S-model is a top of the line component. Far better than what comes standard in most guitars.
It has the best quality, and easiest to access, soldering points of any switch I have used, and I've been playing and repairing guitars for 51 years. A solidly dependable product !
