Our Oak-Grigsby 4-pole superswitch is custom made for us with a much narrower lug spacing than is typical, so it will fit in Tele control cavities. That's right, it'll fit in your Tele! It will work in any wiring scheme we're aware of where a 4-pole 5-way switch is required.

There are several makers of "superswitches": Oak-Grigsby, Yamaha, Schaller, and others. This one gives you access to all six lugs for each of the four poles - 24 lugs in all - so you have total wiring flexibility. When people use the term superswitch, they're most often referring to this family of Oak-Grigsby switches.

Superswitch

Received the product in a timely manner. Works great for my application. HH configuration with a push pull on the tone control. Great company. Will purchase from again.

Pretty cool

Good quality narrow switch. I used a Hakko 880 and a very small chisel tip so soldering was easy.
I used instructions from the stewmac sight. The two extra tones are pretty cool. Of course the 3 main tele sounds are the most useful (Leo and George knew what they were doing), but the two new sounds are #2: both pickups in series giving a loud full humbucker sound although not hum canceling.
#4: both pickups parallel one reversed but the magnets are not changed of course so this is hum canceling but not strat like tone. More nasal tone. Kinda like having a crybaby cocked.
At first I thought it wouldn't be very useful, but it is very useful for heavy gain lead guitar.

Hi, thanks for the great review! Just want to add a comment that the results you're getting in terms of tonality and hum-canceling pertain to your specific application, and won't pertain to the applications of lots of other users. We don't want readers of your review to think for instance that the switch itself is imparting a cocked-wah sound, or is limiting hum-canceling options. Every application is going to differ based on the pickups used and the specific wiring scheme employed.

Thanks again!

This is a brilliant idea, and I wish I had known about these before. I just installed one in a Nashville style Tele to allow my preferred pickup combinations vs standard 3/5 way and push pulls . Actually this one worked with my angled switch control plate. I tried using the standard super switch while removing some wood. It was still binding up. Any more and the hole would not be covered by the plate. This slim version is perfect and will not require any routing for a straight switch and only possibly a tiny amount for an angled one. The switch itself is typical Oak Grigsby quality. I may just use these for all my builds in the future, because it was no harder to wire than a full-sized one and it takes up less space.

This switch is a lifesaver. I tried 2 others before finding this. If you have a Tele and want more switching options this is a must. I highly recommend replacing the control plate to one that has a modified volume location. That 1/4” makes a 5-way switch feel right at home.
