Switchcraft 3 way Toggle Switch - Right Angle type in Gold finish!
Switchcraft are widely regarded as industry standard for quality components. Their products are used by big brands, luthiers and repairers alike, and I'd trust and recommend their jacks and switches.
This is the traditional right angle mount Switchcraft toggle switch, as used by Gibson in their US built SG's for example as well as Fender's USA Jazzmaster. It comes as standard without a switch tip, but you can choose a switch tip of your choice via the drop down menus. It comes supplied with a standard mounting nut.
This is for the often hard to come by gold thread and toggle version (which I have tried to source for quite some time, so hopefully can make this more easily sourced). Other than it's colour difference, one key difference this toggle switch features is a much longer mounting thread length than it's standard nickel counterpart. So you 'may' not require the additional extended knurled nut to install, but please do refer to the measurements below to confirm this against the specs of your guitar.
If you do require an extended nut, they are available here - extended knurled nut
The thread length however is usually ample to mount via a pickguard if you're purchasing this for a Jazzmaster type design.
To help with soldering, all Switchcraft switches have been pre-tinned contacts from the factory. For tips on wiring these up, please see our wiring diagrams which are available via a link at the bottom of the website.
Useful Dimensions -
Overall internal depth from thread - 21mm

Just received a limited batch, so currently have stock! Hopefully I can look into sourcing more of these in better quantities and pricing too as I've been un-able to find these in the UK for years and would like to change that!
You can also choose what switch tip you would like, cream, black or amber. Or if you don't need a new switch tip, simply select 'none'.
