3-way Toggle Switch

For well over half a century, the 3-way toggle switch was the ipso facto standard pickup selector for dual-pickup Gibson guitars. Not long after its introduction, most other manufacturers in the U.S. adopted the toggle. It’s about as simple as you can get, yet it still gets the job done. Even Fender chose the toggle switch on some models like the Jazzmaster and the hollowbody Coronado. PRS began production with rotary pickup selector switches, but by 1994, with the introduction of the McCarty, it began using toggle switches on some models.
