I frequently get calls from customers who want me to swap out the electronics on a new guitar because someone said they were cheap. My response is usually "I'll do it if you want me to, but I recommend keeping the stock stuff unless there's an actual problem to fix."
At least you recognize you're doing it for snootery, not because there's a difference
The cheap blade switches can be a problem, though. They fail a lot more often than the CRL or Oak-Grigsby switches, and it's not that rare for me to see a bad one on a new guitar.
I agree , I only do this to my own guitars , I see it as no difference to a pickup swap . its all snootery , but i was shocked to see my Squier Tele pick ups were dynomite and sounded outstanding.
