I prefer the top hat, makes it way easier to flip between pickups
I'm of the 'couldn't give a monkey's as long as it works' (you need to be British), persuasion.
Does depend on the colour, black, absorbing pretty much all the light that falls on it, does give a denser tone overall.
You need a barrelhat or a topbarrel
Six pages on switch tips........................we're all very sad!
I'm sadder... I just read them all! Good fun though.
I used to own a '69 Tele reissue. Just to be different, I used a Strat switch tip...
That's just SO out of order. Get yourself onto the other channel immediately, wrong forum!
$25 for a knob. Sheesh!
I got a barrel tip from a friend and that's a huge difference. Still don't understand why there is so much room between the volume and tone knobs and the switch has to be on top of the volume. Might bet that plate from Rutters.
What, Marc isn't allowed to make a living? He machines those himself, I think that's worth something.
Had my switch tip turned around the wrong way. Couldn't figure out why my Tele sounded like @$$. Kindly guitar tech at Sam Ash flipped it around the right way for $60. Now it sings.
$25 for a knob. Sheesh!
$12.99 for a top hat switch from Fender, mine lasted less than a year, my $25.00 tip from Rutters is still doing it's job after 5 years. Seems like a no brainer to me.
I like the looks of the top hat, but I keep hitting it and dropping down to the bridge pickup.
I guess I'm going to have to flip the control plate. Don't like the look of that, though. I'll work it out eventually.
doesn't "Keef" use a strat tip ???
Switch Tip? Barrel or Top Hat?
I have Teles with both.
Now this is pure blasphemy.
I went with a Rutters knurled chrome one. The guitar is in the finishing stages. I will switch tips to see what sounds better. JK.
That top is dead nuts sexy to me though. Matches my knobs. And makes me smile.
I have a strat tip on my open-g tele, just seems right.
When my other teles inevitably shed their tips I'll probably just wrap masking tape on the stalk. Caveman...
Every time I touch a strat I knock the selector back to bridge before I barely play a note. I have no idea how anyone gets used to that switch placement; but obviously plenty of people have.
Probably why I like Juniors cuz there's nothing to hit.
I like this one, and it's a real Fender part..... that little top knob from a Fender concentric bass control. Has a genuine Fender set screw too! Guess I need to figure out how to rotate an image and shrink it too?
