Five position PUP switch upgrade?

Post by TSL » Wed Oct 18, 2006 8:11 pm

I need to replace a 5 position switch (Strat type). I know there is some fancy one for wiring humbuckers and such, I just need a regular function one. Any idea if there is an extra good choice out there?

I've seen a spring loaded one, and one with gold contacts...I'd like the best there is.

Hmmmm, seems like this forum could use a heading for modifications, as most here are pretty hands on (I've learned more about what matters to American guitars here than I ever could've on the USA guitar sites!:D), and the search feature sometimes gives you too much to navigate. What do you think Ned? Sorry if I am just creating more work for you...

CRL switches are generally considred to be amongst the best. Oak-Grigsby is another one.
