These Oak-Grigsby 4- and 6-way blade switches are fantastic options to add additional tones to your guitar by adding pickup combinations typically unavailable with the more commonly used 3- and 5-way blade switches.
The 4-Way blade is most commonly a Traditional 2-Pickup Telecaster where the most forward position is the neck and bridge pickups in series.
The 6-Way blade is most commonly used in a Stratocaster style guitar and allows for the neck and bridge pickups combined in parallel. The slot in pickguards and control plates needs to have a length of 1-5/16". This will extend the ends of the slot to the edge of each mounting screw depending of the screw style. A great tool to complete this task is a nut slotting file around .065-.070"
