    I recently acquired this 2000 Squier for little more than my time.

    The plastic nut was the first order of business, So I opened the parts box ...

    Well, some brass caught my eye, and after a "bubba mod" I now have brass compensated saddles in the bridge.

    I also remembered the pair of Alexander Pribor Blues Tele pickups that I always liked, so they're in there now.

    Since the jack was falling out, and there happened to be an ElectroSocket jack cup and a Switchcraft jack in the parts box, they fit right in.

    Figured since I was replacing stuff, and again, they were in the parts box, I'd go with full size CTS pots and a Switchcraft 3-way switch.

    Well, the pots are a tight fit, but the switch is a no-go (as was the CRL switch). I didn't realize that the control rout would be a different depth.

    So my question - Can anyone recommend something other than this Chinese 3-way switch? upload_2017-7-16_21-23-18.jpeg

    (FWIW, the parts box was devoid of guitar nuts or material.)

    Thanks!

    Do you own a chisel?
