Ultimate Flexibility

The flexibility this switch provides is fantastic and the quality is top notch! I wired my Strat using this switch along with a DPDT on a 500K volume pot (#1216) and a 6 position-2 pole rotary switch (#3511). I get N, NM-parallel, NM-series, NB-parallel, MB-parallel, MB-series and B. The rotary switch allows me to choose from 4 different tone capacitors, to place a capacitor in series with the tone pot to bypass the volume pot (to blend in more highs with low volume settings), or to completely switch out the tone control. Incredible flexibility and it looks totally stock!

Really High Quality!!!

I have bought it and used on my Kramer striker. It works fine, without any hum and without any unwanted voices while switching between positions.

This switch is super!

This switch is the most versatile. The feel is great and the build quality is good. The way I like to wire the switch took a lot of thinking, but the rewards are fantastic. I would use this for all the guitars I possibly can.

Great Switch

I wired my 3-Single Coil Strat 1) Neck+Middle Series, 2) Middle+Bridge Series, 3) Neck, 4) Middle, 5) Bridge. This emulates front and rear humbuckers in positions 1 & 2 and single coils in positions 3, 4, & 5. However, I must have spent two hours trying to figure out how to wire everything and then probably another hour to get everything wired up. Flexibility comes with a price...

Super Switch

The Stew Mac Super Switch is now installed in my '72 Tele Thinline Reissue with two Dimarzio Super Distortion humbuckers. Because the Super Switch is very similar to the discontinued Dimarzio 5-way switch, my guitar tech first wired it using the Dimarzio diagram. But instead of having bridge and neck split coils wired in parallel, I had it changed for the bridge and neck coils to work independently like a Strat. The result is terrific. By the way, I had a custom white pearl pick guard made by a 3rd party, and with chrome Dimarzio pickups, the guitar looks like it could be a stock version.

Excellent switch!

Just finished a custom jazz bass project and this switch is a big part of it! The instructions supplied were great. As an unexperienced builder, had no trouble figuring out the poles/positions.

Great switch!

Ive used this switch on a project and Im using it again! Ive used it with other devices sold here (rotary switch and push pull pot) to get 14 different tones from 3 Dimarzio Air Nortons on my Strat. However, I had lots of trouble finding a cream tip to fit this switch (the replacement tips they sell here will not fit this switch), I eventually used a cream colored tip from another supplier. I also could not find gold colored screws to fit this switch, the gold screws i bought from here were just slightly loose, I used super glue to reduce the diameter of the screw holes and now the screws hold on tight.
