Good upgrade

By

I bought this for my Epiphone ES-335 PRO. Big improvement over the original Epiphone switch. I did need to open the hole slightly for it to drop in. Easy to do if you have a round file.

Got this switch for my project Fender Jaguar, overall it’s a pretty good switch, it’s not super sturdy and if you werent careful you might accidentally hit it into another position but overall it was very good.

As a retirement gift to myself I bought a long time dream guitar a D'Angelico...awesome guitar but I can tell where they tired to save money...the pickup switch...by passing the run around they gave me, I ordered one of these bad boys. Now I'm back in business. Smooth solid Pro switch...
Thank you.

The Real thing

Bought this to replace a "Box Type" switch on my old Aria LP Guitar. This is a very good switch mechanically that snaps into position with good contact.

Bought the metric 3 way toggle switch for my Epiphone Casino. After install found would not select the bridge pickup. Made an inquiring to Stew Mac and they promptly sent me a replacement no charge which works perfect. They were very quick to respond and resolve the problem!

Good switch for Japanese-made Ibanez's

By

Verified Buyer


Installed one of these in a 2002 Japanese-made Ibanez JS1000 last week. First perfectly and feels solid, no complaints. I also replaced the flush-mount output jack at the same time. I've never really heard a difference in tone before when replacing a switch, but I swear the signal is stronger now. Perhaps the stock toggle switch (or jack) I pulled out was sub-par.

Be sure to use the Metric wiring diagram posted on this product page. It differs from the comparable non-metric Switchcraft wiring diagram.
