    Hi

    I've got a CU24 and really dig where the 5-way fender-type switch is located. I was wondering if there any models available where the 3-way toggle type pickup switch is located where the tone pot normally would be (e.g. swap the tone and toggle). If not, is it easy enough to swap around or would I have to go the custom route?


    PS: I'm thinking of getting a 6-way Jimmy Page type switch to cover double duty on the pu selector and coil-tap controls (http://www.stewmac.com/shop/Electro...witches_and_knobs/Free-Way_Pickup_Switch.html)

    408's have a 3-way blade switch in that position (also has coil tap switches in the area), but not a toggle. I can't think of any other models off the top of my head. Switching a tone and a toggle wouldn't be too hard, but there may be issues with the mounting hole diameters being different - I'm sure someone more knowledgeable could chime in and tell you.

    True - the "old tone" hole would need to be made a bit larger. I don't think there would be problems with the tone in the "old toggle" hole as some washers should be able to "mind the gap". I found the schematics page. http://www.prsguitars.com/csc/schematics.html Interesting trip though all the models.
