    What does all this mean?  You're getting a tough switch that will last a long time in your instrument and look good doing it!  

    The switch is easy to install. If you have the slightest bit of skill with a soldering iron you can do it yourself. If you do not have that skill, you should have a guitar repair person do it.  

    The LATCHING operation of this switch will also allow it to be used as an on/off switch for many different guitar functions like pickups, preamps, external LEDs, or simply as a mute switch for between songs or sets.

         (1) 8" Black ground wire
         (1) 8" White hot wire
    (1) Set of easy-to-follow wiring instructions

    This switch can be used with active or passive pickups with no additional parts required.  Just solder the wires (already attached to the switch) and get ready for action!

    The Tesi Switch Difference:
    We test every switch before packaging it.  As a result, the failure rate is less than 1%.  We package the 12MM and larger switches in a custom cut foam block and place in a small box for protection. The box also includes a couple of Tesi Switch guitar picks, as well as all the wiring necessary to install in an active or passive system, and we are always happy to help with installation questions.

    If something does go wrong, our switches have a 1-Year Guarantee against defect or failure.
