Rewired the guitar, replaced blown pickups, new cap, new 250K pots, new p/u switch. Everything was in Fender or Dimarzio packaging from a major retail music store. Was my feeling that a new switch would be the way to go since I was replacing everything else... Have now put back the 52 year old switch - far better feeling than the new one was - is more precise and works better. Like comparing an Infiniti to a Skoda. Plus the new one had issues from the start IMO, was not as solid when I wired it, cheap tinny junk. Lasted about 3 weeks in my home studio so not subjected to getting slammed on a gig. Hard to believe but true...they don't make-em like they used-to...another example.
