The original 5-way switch on my 1987 American Standard Stratocaster had worn out (intermittently bad contacts in some positions), so I ordered this as a replacement.

It's pretty much exactly the same thing as the original, so needless to say, if fitted like a charm. It comes with mounting bolts and both black and white plastic knobs, but I retained my original, as all the other parts of this guitar have yellowed with age).

Look, its a switch, and its not going to magically improve your tone, but if it lasts me another 32 years on this guitar like the last one did, that's really all I can ask.

Excellent quality

This is a top-notch replacement part. Very sturdy and will probably last a few decades. Very smooth operation and has a very tight feel (no wobbling in the in-between positions).

Typical Strat replacement
wgen, 10.11.2016
I bought this classic 5 way switch in the past for my Strat, when I had to re-make all the internal wiring.
It did work just ok, but I'm not that much confident with its quality overall. When I had done all the wiring, guitar set to play and all, I found that the switch was showing a little opposition every time I had to select the fifth position of the switch.
This happened because the little moving metal strip inside of the switch, which is there to make the connection to the pickups' signals, was bouncing with one of the other little metal parts inside of the switch itself when I selected the fifth position. It was a little annoying, and after some time I replaced this switch with another one of this same model, and everything went better then

Great switch
PaulLee, 25.12.2019
This is the best switch I've used so far. The ones in the plastic housing are not good but this one is "open" so you can get in there and spray a bit of contact cleaner straight on it should you need to. You have to be quick with the solder iron though and I suggest using a lower powered one so you don't risk melting your thin wires or risk heating the pins on the circuit board too much.
