DiMarzio was founded on the spirit of continuous improvement and a passionate reverence for our vintage roots. Our parts hold to these same ideals, because we know that the performance of your pickups is only as good as the parts connecting them. So, we searched the industry for the most robust, reliable, and finest sounding electrical parts to offer our customers, including many parts that are custom-built specifically for DiMarzio.
DiMarzio relies on Switchcraft® for our pickup selector switches because they’re simply the best we’ve found. Switchcraft® has been making these since 1946, using military spec designs and, along with their practically bullet-proof quality, they also consistently produce the most natural and musical sound. Lesser switches suffer from noticeable tone loss and use a rounded contact top that notoriously causes the switch to fall out of position after minimal usage. Switchcraft’s design uses a square contact that creates two times the contact area, resulting in an incomparably reliable hold in any position.
A flush-mount flat knurled nut and a deep knurled nut are included, as well as screw-on black and cream knobs.
These switches directly retrofit USA Gibson®, with a 3/8-inch threaded shaft diameter, threaded shaft height: 6/32” (4.763 mm), and extending 1-9/16” (39.688mm) in length.
