A cheaper alternative to Switchcraft

Having removed the active tone circuit from my bass and installed just a single volume control, I was left with three empty holes where the previous blend, bass & treble pots had been. I decided to put in three Gibson-type toggle switches to fill the holes, though these would not be connected to anything and be purely for show. Genuine Switchcraft toggle switches cost around 30 quid each- rather too much to spend on something that does nothing, so I shopped around and found these switches from Northwest Guitars at a fiver apiece, which was much more reasonable. The switch bodies are much smaller than the genuine article and I had no trouble fitting three of them into the control cavity. They're of fair quality and from the outside they look identical to the real thing, and Rhythm/Treble switch surrounds are also included. As my switches do nothing I can't vouch for their function but I expect they would work satisfactorily in normal use. Ordering them online from Northwest Guitars was simple and they were delivered a couple of days later. Should I require further guitar components I'll have no hesitation in using Northwest Guitars again- excellent service!
If only one person asks me what they're for, I'll reply that they do nothing and I'll be happy!

Great value switch

Fitted perfectly in my Aria Pro II LP copy.
Be aware though, it doesn't have the feel of the original switch. The original switch needed just a slight nudge to go from either PU to both in the central position. This switch has 3 distinct clicks and as such gives no feedback as to where you are. I hope that makes sense.
