    I got this today, and cant find any info about it. The guy I bought it from said it was 1 of 25. The switch is broken, so it needs a new switch. But finding one like what is on it seems to be impossible.

    So two questions.

    1) any info on this guitar?
    2) Where can I find a replacement switch?

    I'm guessing its a Custom Order 22. With a DGT neck instead of the Usual Custom 22 neck.

    As long as the mounting screw offset is the same, it looks like any other 5-way. A call to customer service is probably in your future. Regardless, a bolt-on DGT neck??!! Freakin’ awesome! Gorgeous!

    It's a Schaller Mega(super)switch. The CU22 Soapy's switch in the middle position selects the neck & bridge pickups, and this switch enables this combination.

    They're pretty readily available, I think the "S" or "M" type will do the job, but check the instructions first :)

    p.s. sweet guitar, I do miss my one from the original run.

    Pretty sure the 2010 all had DGT carve necks (similar to the "Regular D" on the original run), unsure about the "CO" but it could be what Custom 22 Soapbars are referred to in the MODCAT???

    Cool! So it's basically a Custom 22 Soapbar, but a special run a good while after that model was discontinued.

    I'm not sure which Schaller switch that is, or if it's original, but there are plenty of options for replacements depending on what selections you want.

    I had a couple of CU22 Soapbars (I think the “O” was just a badly written “U”) with maple fretboards and necks. They weren’t bolt-on, they were set-necks. I believe the 2010 runs were, too.

    That one’s a beauty!
