Free-Way 3-Way/6-Position Pickup Switch

About This Item

Unlock new tones for your Tele®!
Are you feeling limited by your pickup switching options? Do you dread cutting holes into your treasured guitar for new switches? Do you find push-pull pots are clumsy to use in an actual performance?

You can finally get all of the flexibility you want without ugly holes and extra switches! This Free-Way 3-Way/6-Position switch takes the conventional 3-way switch three steps further.

Simply drop in for unlimited options
Designed to fit into most standard Tele control plates, this switch has 6 positions! It works like two traditional 3-way switches side-by-side. With one knob, you can click between each pickup selection instantly. And—the feel of the switch is not changed! It still feels just like the switch you are used to.

Professional quality for a lifetime of use
Free-Way switches are made in England with top quality components so they'll keep working gig after gig, year after year. The solder pads are gold-plated, the switch housing is stainless steel.

And it even includes the barrel knob. If you prefer the Top-hat Knob we've got that too!

The switch easily fits most standard Tele control plates and control cavities. Some cavities might require slight enlargement.

This is not just for Tele's! You can easily use this switch as a replacement for most standard 3-way blade style switches.

Quick access to a variety of tones


Verified Buyer

Yeah. It is a bit pricey for a switch. However, the install easier and playability is great. Instead of making multiple switches to another tone and another multiple switches back, it is all in one movement.

I did not have any issues with noise. It does not feel like you have to treat it any more delicate than a regular 3-way.

The mounting screws are silver in color and I have black hardware. I emailed Free-Way and they said the screw size is M3x10mm Csk. Have yet to find a black scew in that size.
