There are three main “styles” of open toggle switches commonly used in guitars. You will usually see these different styles referred to as:
- Long Straight
- Short Straight, or
- Right Angle
These have all been created in order to fit inside different guitars of different thicknesses.
Switchcraft produces open toggle switches in each of these styles. Here at Guitar Sauce, I only use Switchcraft toggle switches as they are top quality and built to last.
Check the table below to see which style toggle switch your guitar requires.
|Make & Model||Year||Switch|
|All Gibsons||1952- 1977||Long|
|Les Paul Historic Models||All Years||Long|
|Les Paul Studio||All Years||Short|
|Les Paul Traditional||All Years||Long|
|Les Paul Deluxe||All Years||Long|
|Les Paul Classic||All Years||Long|
|Les Paul Special||All Years||Short|
|SG (all models)||All Years||Short|
|Flying V||All Years||Short|
|Epiphone & Import LP||All Years||Short|
If your guitar is not listed above, check out the diagrams below. They display the measurements of each of the three switches so you can compare against the switch currently have in your guitar.
