Easy to install. Easy to wire. Just what I needed. So I bought 2!

No Trouble at all.

This switch fits in the Telecaster body, unlike other 5 pole switches intended for Strats. The quality seems identical to several other 4 pole switches from various sources, but this is a bit slimmer than the others. Works beautifully so far.

Super Switch Has Limits

I like the super switch a lot. It gives me a lot of wiring flexibility that I could not get otherwise. My only gripe is that, for some of my projects, I either need a switch that has more than 4 divisions, or I need a switch - just like the super switch (with 4 divisions) - that ALSO provides the same positions 2 and 4 as a standard Strat switch (in pos 2 shorts 1 & 2, in pos 4 shorts 4 & 5). I have one humbucker combination I'm trying to wire right now that 'stumped the Super Switch'. Still a good little switch, but I want to be able to hook each wire of two humbuckers to it's own division (total 8 wires). have to admit, for the quality level, it is a little pricey.

Good but it could be better.

I installed this on my RG7420 because I place a couple of Seymour Duncan Distortion, the install was really easy, the thing is that it feels cheap compared to the stock switch I replaced, for the price I exprected a bit more quality. Shipping was amazing fast Kudos!!

I haven't found a better 5-way lever-switch than this that can handle extremely-custom wiring combinations. The lever has the right amount of tension and makes a positive "click" into each position for flawless changes in live-use. I use this mostly for people who don't like the stock tones on a Strat. With this switch, my favorite use is:
1: Neck
2: Neck/Middle
3: Neck/Bridge (Sounds like a Tele)
4: Middle/Bridge
5: Middle+Bridge, in series (Brian May Sounding Humbucker)

Disappointing quality

Seemed sturdy initially but after few moths of moderate use the lever has play around the axis. Hence the switch stands between two positions i.e. on mute, when the lever has locked in on a position.

Switch de excelente calidad

Lo ordené para ponerlo en una Ibañez de serie S (cuerpo ultra delgado) y aunque de inicio no cupo (sobresalía de la cavidad de los controles), haciendo algunas adecuaciones quedó perfecto.

Add "Tele" pickup combinations to your Strat

I have used these Super switches in a number of my guitars together with the push-pull pots to add "Gibson" style pickup combinations to a Strat or Tele. Further, in 2-pickup mode you can simulate the use of the dual volume controls to get all of one and some of the other.
