The Freeway 3B3-01 switch gives you three extra tonalities. I fitted one of these switches to my American Telecaster and it has transformed the guitar. Positions 1,2 and 3function like a normal 3 way switch i.e Position 1-Bridge pickup.2-Bridge/Neck in parallel. 3-Neck.By pushing the the switch slightly across you hear an audible click which gives you access to the other pickup combinations. Position 4- both pickups in parallel out of phase. Position 5- both pickups in series out of phase. Position 6- both pickups in series in phase.These switches are easily fitted if you have basic soldering and wiring skills. Wiring diagrams can be easily obtained from the Freeway website.

Excellent option for flexible sound
Michael Marshall 08.05.2023
Thoroughly recommend this. Easy install using the wiring diagram and some YouTube videos for reference. Cost effective and added considerable flexibility to the sound of my Fender MIJ Tele, adding series/parallel and in/out of phase without need for installing push pulls pots etc. Accurate switching despite the extra settings and after several months of use it still seems robust.

Great Idea, Well Executed
MARVlN 07.04.2021
I fitted this Freeway switch into my .strandberg* Boden Original 6, which as stock was setup with dual humbuckers and a five way switch. The standard setup didn't include both humbuckers, or the split bridge humbucker, and the diagram provided by Freeway (on their website) made this a doddle to change over (far fewer contacts to manage too!).

Now I have the following options:
Lower Position 1: Neck Humbucker
Lower Position 2: Both Humbuckers
Lower Position 3: Bridge Humbucker

Upper Position 1: Neck Coil Tapped, Outer Coil
Upper Position 2: Neck and Bridge Coil Tapped, Outer Coils
Upper Position 3: Bridge Coil Tapped, Outer Coil

It physically seems to be quite large, mainly because it's boxy, but it's actually a slightly better fit in the Boden's cavity than the original super-style switch (which barely fit to the extent that contacts could short on the cavity cover!), as it's slightly lower.

The main thing to watch for when fitting is that the slot for the blade is wide enough to allow the sideways motion to change between 'bank 1' and 'bank 2', or 'upper' and 'lower'.

All in all, it's a great quality switch that's easy to wire, if quite expensive.
