Product Description

This is a 4-way switch from Oak-Grigsby, the current supplier of lever switches to Fender for USA and Mexico production. The 4-way switch was made especially for Fender for use in Telecasters, to add another tonal option. The stock wiring on most Teles since about 1967 has been like this:

Position 3: Neck Pickup
Position 2: Both Pickups Wired in Parallel
Position 1: Bridge Pickup

The 4-position switch allowed the pickups to also be wired in series:

Position 4: Both Pickups Wired in Series
Position 3: Neck Pickup
Position 2: Both Pickups Wired in Parallel
Position 1: Bridge Pickup

Of course, you don't have to wire the switch as Fender does above, you can also wire it like this, which we prefer:

Position 4: Neck Pickup
Position 3: Both Pickups Wired in Series
Position 2: Both Pickups Wired in Parallel
Position 1: Bridge Pickup

We think most longtime Tele players would prefer to have the forward position be the neck pickup bu itself, and the rearward position be the bridge pickup by itself, in keeping with 50 years of Tele tradition. Sort of like anchors, with the combination settings in the middle. In any case, the switch can be wired either way. For Fender's version, use our TE-SS2 wiring diagram. For our version, use our TE-SS3 digram.

Oak-Grigsby switches are made in Mexico.
