Awesome switch allowing for tons of wiring possibilities.
You need to reduce the size it is too deep to fit most guitars! NG Response: "It is actually the same depth as all other North American blade switches (CRL and Oak Grigsby). If you are referring to the thickness, you are correct. It is two wafer layers, which increases the thickness. That may require you to install and wire it in the opposite direction to the switch you're replacing."
WORKS GREAT SO FAR
I used this switch to replace the original one in EBMM Silhouette Special (HSS Configuration). Although the Musicman part is very close to this one (possible sourced by Oak Grigsby), I found this switch to be a little better. The switching is a bit stiffer, which I do like because in the past I would often inadvertently switch pickups while playing - the original switch was a lot easier to move. Saying that, I would like to mention that Musicman part had the lugs bent differently, to make the soldering of their switching configuration easier.
