5-way Rotary Pickup Selector

Recommended Posts

You can install them "correctly" without any kind of special switch - they're just 4 conductor humbuckers. If you want the rotary switch and the same choices PRS offers, buy their switch package. You can get the same results from a 5-way Superswitch®, or you can wire them like any normal guitar and use mini-toggles or push-pull pots for coil splits - thee's no compelling reason to use the rotary switch.

Six-ways are really easy to come by at electronics stores and such, but I'm sure if you search www.mouser.com, you'll find one. They've got it all. Shipping might cost more than the switch (I'm guessing $5-6 USD), if that's the case, I'd buy a couple, not to mention they've got bulk rates! :D

By the way, you don't necessarily need the rotary switch to install them "correctly", it's all a matter of whether you want the added versitility or not. :D
