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.

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.

Wirklich eine Bereicherung :-)
Lötkolben, 02.12.2019
Habe den Freeway 3B3 in meiner 72'Thinline-Partscaster und bin wirklich sehr zufrieden! Hatte den 5B5 schon mal in einer Strat und war interessanterweise gar nicht so begeistert, aber der 3-way (also eigentlich 6-way) ist echt toll!! Super leicht zum Löten (v.a. im Vergleich zum 6-way toggle switch von Freeway) und von der Haptik sehr natürlich und angenehm :-) Auch wenn man die 3 zusätzlichen Positionen (seriell, seriell out-of-phase, parallel out-of-phase) nicht tagtäglich brauchen sollte, sind sie doch toll für jazzy&funky clean sounds sowie auch sehr spannend mit verzerrung! wenn man es klassisch mag, bleibt man einfach in der unteren Ebene und alles ist wie gewohnt, dass der Schalter etwas nach unten gekippt ist sieht keinen und oft merk ich es selber beim Spielen gar nicht mehr. Auf jeden Fall bleiben die Potis dadurch frei und ich habe zB auf dem Vol-Poti noch einen PushPull zum Humbucker-Splitten und den Ton-Poti als NoLoad, damit die Höhen auch schön chrispy sind (und NoLoad gibt es meines Wissens nicht als PushPull). Wie auch immer, für jede Art von Telecaster hat dieser Switch meine 100%allervollste Empfehlung :-)

Ca vaut le coup de remplacer son sélecteur par celui-ci. Le son en série est top (humbucker) et permet d'envoyer la sauce au moment du solo! Facile à manipuler. Les positions en hors phase série et parallèle valent le coup aussi.
Attention de bien mettre à la masse les écrans des câbles micro si vous en avez. En cas de problème répond rapidement. Ils ont d'autres switches intéressants.
