Sarge

You use Epoxy resin (Araldite) and you mix in some wood dust from your fret board wood. I do not know what Carbonite is. But if it is black, burn some matches and mix the carbon dust with one part of the glue. Then add the second part of the glue and Bob's your Fanny.

Thanks Hoax, My son suggested the exact same treatment, so we sat together and set about it tonight.
I had to grind down the holes a touch as they were bevelled slightly, and used the carbonite dust to mix with the epoxy, and Bob was, as you say, my fanny!

not a perfect match as the 2 new dots are a tad brighter and the 7th fret dot now seems to follow me around the room!.
I was just giving it a little play when my daughter came for a goodnight cuddle and I put the guitar down, catching the mini toggle switch on the kitchen chair...snapping it clean off! 25 years on this axe, Ive had the damn thing a week and this happens! Embarassed

Not to worry. "Poo" happens.
It's fixable without too much grief and expense at least, eh?

I should think so, just have to find out what kinda switch it is, and find one that looks as near as identical as possible

You will probably get a suitable mini switch in Maplin's for buttons.

that will work. you can use that mini switch for >> on-on-on << or >> on-off-on <<

check your connection points with a meter before hooking it up. the connections will look a little different than what is on your guitar presently, but it will work fine.

In the spirit of casting pearls before swine, what would be the purpose or advantage of an on-on-on switch?

I do have a meter, but only ever used it to find broken connections, I'm not too sure I'd know what to look for exactly.

in the link there is a picture of how the switch functions.
each column of contacts is a separate switch. there are 2 switches, 3 positions
the red indicates a closed switch
depending on how you connect it you can make it "on" in the middle or "off" in the middle
a double humbucker setup is going to be both switches 'on' in the middle.


a close up of the link shows terminal numbers.

connect terminals 2 and 5 (the center point of each switch) to the output . in your pic, it looks like the switch output goes to the volume pot.
connect your neck pickup to terminal 6.
connect your bridge pickup to terminal 3.


with your meter you can determine which contact is which, if the contacts are not labeled as such.
something to notice is that the closed contacts are at the opposite end from the switch handle.

Thanks for the help gittarasaurus, just installed the new switch, like for like, easy peasy.
Might need some more help with some switch replacements on my Condor strat post...need to get some pics taken first.
