Custom Double Recessed
Mini-Toggle Switch Pickguard Kit Specifically Designed For Use With The
What we are offering here is
a unique twist on how Strat® pickup selection
modification switches are mounted and presented.
The concept behind this mini-toggle switch
mounting style reflects on the Gilmour Black
Strat® and it's single recessed mini-toggle
switch but we have taken it a few steps further
for increased diversity.
For our pickup selection
don't utilize push/pull or push/push pots which are quite
typical and uninteresting and we don't mount our
mini-toggle switches in holes drilled in the
pickguard using the standard chrome flat washer
and hex nut on the top side of the
pickguard, that's also very typical and
For this particular
modification implementation we have custom
routed two small 1/8" x 5/16" slots in the
pickguard, custom designed a unique stainless
steel mounting bracket to secure both of the
mini-toggle switches in alignment with the two
slots in the pickguard which is then fastened
securely in place with the volume and tone
potentiometers. This custom mini-toggle switch
mounting bracket provides a recessed or lowered
profile of both switches that only allows a
small portion (approx. 1/4") of each switch
lever to protrude through
the top side of the pickguard.
This particular kits
recessed mini-toggle switch modification kit is
the only one of our kits we offer that
WILL WORK with a Super 5-Way
pickup selector switch and that is it's primary
intention in it's design. It's recessed mini-toggle switch
mounting bracket was specifically designed to be able to
accommodate the Super 5-Way
pickup selector switch and
two DPDT mini-toggle switches for wiring
modification switching. The Super 5-Way
switch is much wider than a standard 5-way
switch so certain considerations had to be taken
into account in the design.
With this unique switch
mounting method you won't accidentally bump a
toggle switch with your hand or knuckles while
playing, the profile of the toggle switch levers
are just too low to inadvertently bump. By
mounting the mini-toggle switches this way they
are only activated or de-activated with intent,
or when you want them switched, no accidental
pickup selection changes with this design
