Hello. I love the old PRS (pre 1992) but the rotary is not my favorite innovation. Considering the collectability of some of the older ones, what are your thoughts on converting to the McCarty with Push Pull wiring (saving all original components and knowing that it is reversible, but those solder joints will never be the same.

I have converted my Whackmaster and considering the Zebra.

Plenty of people have converted their rotary switches to different functionalities. Make it work the way you want it to. Collectibility/resale value shouldn’t be a concern unless it’s a rare limited edition that stays in a case and is handled with white gloves.
