    Do you not know where to get one, (Click) or are you seriously trying to save $1.49?

    tonebro - thanks for checking. If you have one I'll throw back some cash to you to cover the piece and postage.

    reason I asked is because the sites I found the part wanted a $15 minimum order plus anywhere from $6-10 bucks to ship. figured no harm in asking this fine group of folks. no I'm not trying to save $1.49 but thanks for the link - these guys seem willing to do the order plus $5.95 so if tonebro can't hook me up. That's a good option.

    I've just lost one and it's an upgraded switch... the end is too wide for the Fenders and I'm having a nightmare finding a replacement. I mention it just to give people a heads up in case they get in this situation.

    The first thing I usually do when I buy a new Tele is put a Strat switch tip on it so it won't fall off like the Tele tip does.:eek:

    Honestly not sure, but I would guess the import.

    Funny, I have a TON of Teles and I've NEVER had a switch tip fall off. I'm surprised that this seems to be such a common problem.
