Installation of the device was not nerve-wracking at all, but you must have a little patience. The simplified schematic made it very easy to wire the two humbuckers, and when I plugged in the guitar I was ecstatic that all positions worked as they should. I am truly happy with this rotary switch which I installed in a PRS copy guitar with Al Dimeola signature pickups.
I bought this switch to add a coil tap option to my Firebird and clean up its looks by removing the three-way switch. The 3512 switch is a bit taller than the control cavity so I needed to add a ~.080" spacer between the body and the rear cover plate for clearance. The new positions sound great and I am happy with the modification. My order arrived right on time and it was a fun project. Thank you Stew-Mac!
I used a 4P6T in my Les Paul to control 3 Coil Tapped Humbuckers. I've been beating on it for several years now, and it's still giving me 100% all the time.
These will keep me coming back because they're rugged and versatile. I have a 5-way, a 6-way, and recently got another 4P6T for a friends guitar. They're tricky to install and make your control cavity look like spaghetti, but they've officially made me dislike the traditional 3-way toggle switch. I won't play without a rotary (unless it's a Strat-style).
I installed a Seymour Duncan P-Rail pick-up in the middle position of a Strat and wired it to a 6-position Rotary Switch. The neck and bridge P-ups are wired to another 6-position Rotary switch and the output leads of those two switches are wired to yet another 6-position Rotary switch. This enables every combination possible (though some are redundant /useless).
The switches work great and the wiring was fun to do. Not hard at all like some reviews I read before diving in. If you can work a soldering iron, there should be no problem. One thing to point out is that I did this for recording sounds; to avoid filtering or EQing. In my case, with three switches, it takes a bit of time to dial in the sounds; Too much fiddling. But most folks wont use three in a scheme so it would be fine for live use.
