Brilliant ! An extra sound with traditional pickups. The construction is in the traditional wafer switch style, but using modern materials - Fabric based Fibreglass (Like a high quality PCB), so better electrical spec. Contacts are silver plated spring wiping. Appropriate screws are provided because so many different threads are in use now. A pictorial wiring diagram is included in the pack, so ok if you're not an amp/electronics tech. You do need to solder it reliably though. Diagram part no. 099-2250-199. Update: Too Close For Comfort! - After fitting this and using it for a week or so, it is rather uncomfortably close to the volume control. This makes it a bit fiddly with the 4 positions. The answer has already been provided by product 283681 ABM 7811c Tele Control Plate. This is specifically designed to provide more space between the switch and volume control. Someone else has already been through this before! Get the control plate upgrade with the switch! - Well worth the few extra quid!
If you've got a tele then you need one of these. You probably didn't even know your guitar was missing the sound this provides but when you install one of these you'll wonder how you ever lived without it before. Positions one to three work as normal but position four puts both pickups in series (essentially adding them both together) as opposed to in parallel which position two does. This essentially like creating a big humbucker to your tele.If you've ever wondered how Brian May achieves such a thick sound using single coils, it's that he has a thomann switch to put them in series. There is a bit of a jump in volume too. I find myself using this like a solo position. I use the regular switch positions for rhythm and flick to position 4 for a solo. If you've ever wondered how Brian May achieves such a thick sound using single coils, it's that he has a switch to put them in series.
