Transformed!
Mr Greggles, 21.07.2020
This switch has transformed my guitar.

I have an HSS Washburn which I've had many years and it has given me most of my strat-like tones plus a few others. The pots and switches were getting crackly, despite cleaning them, so I thought I would replace them. While I was looking for replacement parts I came across this switch and thought it might be nice to try it out.

Since fitting the switch I have all the tones I had before plus some new ones. It has added some beefy series-connected sounds plus a Tele-like bridge-plus-neck sound. The versatility is great for recording.

What was a good guitar for tones is now a great guitar. The transformation is as big as changing pickups , but you have all your old favourite tones still on tap.

Great product to expand your guitars tonal options
Jernej V., 25.03.2021
I use this product in a Fender Player Strat. It was not exactly a drop in replacement as it does not allow for same tone pot wiring, instead you have to choose which pickup can not be wired to tone pote. My tech found a brilliant solution and added a G&L-like PTB wiring. Now i have master treble and bass cut which comes really handy with the humbucking options of the freeway swtich.

I did experience a glitch once where the switch got stuck somewhere in the middle and i had to rock it out into a default position.

Pro: tonal options. So many tonal options. It really is like having another guitar. I love it.

Con: Well the glitch I experienced makes me feel a bit uneasy. I hope it does not happen often or leads to switch failing.

I do recommend this product to anyone who wishes to add versatility to his guitar for a low price.

Very nice
corsair, 10.12.2020
I wanted to connect 3 Burns Trisonic pickups and this was the most convenient option. Easy to connect and easy to use, feels nice when switching. My only criticism is about the clearance of the tip switch. On the extreme positions, it is very close to the mounting plate. That is not a problem with the supplied strat-like tips but I intended to use a round tele tip but it's not possible - on the extreme positions it touches the mounting plate

Versatility in a small foot print
P Angus , 24.04.2019
Used on modifying a Strat.
5 more pickup configs without additional switches, no modification on the guitar needed.
The wiring is easy, the 5 additional config happen within the switch, not on extra wiring.
