Les Paul Toggle switch replacement tips


Recommended Posts

Just hoping for a few tips. The toggle switch on my Les Paul has snapped and a I have bought a replacement which I was going to get fitted, but thought I'd have a crack at it myself.

I've read a number of forum threads and watched a couple of Youtube vids and it seems fairly straightforward. I opened up the back of the guitar to take a look at how the existing one was wired and it looks different to the videos I've seen, mainly becuase the existing output lead (i think), is not soldered to the eyelet, but instead is soldered to the whole side of the switch (see pic).

I'm just looking for some advice on how easy it will be to remove it, and if necessary how best to approach soldering the wire in the same place on the replacement switch.
