SPDT on/off/on switch needed - where can I get one?

Recommended Posts

SPDT on/off/on switch needed - where can I get one?

Thread width is 7/16"  and the depth in the guitar 1" or less. I can find this in mini switches, but not full sized. I tried GC, Stew-Mac, Musician's Friend, Sweetwater and a few others.

It's for a Parker guitar and it connects to a preamp to switch between the magnetic and/or passive pickups.

Rough schematic (i'm not good at mouse drawing)

Obvliusly it grounds what it wants to shut off. And it's for this guitar (the toggle closest to the bottom of the guitar)

Edit. I missed the and/or part. Thought i had one. Disregard.

Check W.W. Graingers for an on/on/on toggle switch.  They may have what you need.

Would Parker sell you a part?  Otherwise I'd try Switchcraft's website.

Unfortunately, Parker got purchased by US Instruments and they let the brand die. No service, no parts, and even the Parker forum is a ghost of what it once was. There are a couple of people left on the Parker site that want to know what works so when or if their switch fails they will know what to do.

Thanks.

Mouser has a bunch too! Looking further than guitar stores helped.
