Different 5-way Switches


Recommended Posts

I am used to using the normal 5 ways with the 8 tips alternating on the left and right. So I got one with them all in line and though it would work the same... I found that they don't. Does anyone have a conversion diagram??? Or perhaps a decent explanation of how they differ?

Basically I am wiring a strat with some personal mods, but if anyone had a strat diagram with the five-way like I have (all prongs in a line) I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

however they do make some inline ones that are backwards form what you shown.

1/2/3/H H/3/2/1 although they are not as common but i have seen them in a cheap yamaha strat copy
