Les Paul Studio (USA) Switch replacement

Recommended Posts

My Les Paul came with a short switch that needs to be replaced. Les Pauls are supposed to come with a long switch, but this one came from the factory with a short switch. Is there an advantage to using a long instead of a short? I'm not sure if a long will fit anyway. (I measured and it's just under the required 1 1/2 inches, according to Stewmac.com)

 

Has anyone replaced a switch for a Les Paul Studio and found they needed to use a short switch? Did anyone try a long switch and make is fit?r

 

Mine's a 2011 or 2012 Les Paul Studio Faded, USA.

The Les Paul Studio has a thinner body than a traditional Les Paul. No much thinner but that may be the reason for the short switch. Switch craft is what I see most people use as a replacement.

When I had to replace the switch in my 1991 LP Studio I found they originally used a Made In Japan switch. A Switchcraft switch would not fit properly. I was told the Japanese switch is a high quality switch and just as good as the Switchcraft switch.

Thanks John
