    I fucking hate VLX/OTAX switches

    Seriously. I followed three different diagrams (all supposed to be the same end result) to rewire this fucking '91 S470, and it's all garbage. Can't get the bridge to make sound. Goddamnit I've been in there three times tonight

    I want to re-light another bucket full of 10 pounds of thermate and toss this goopy piece of shit switch in there





    On an unrelated note, does anyone want to buy an old Ibanez S470 with a few electrical gremlins? I ought to just part this thing out!

    It might be a bad switch. The Alpha 5-way switch will fit in the cavity, if you don't mind the slightly plasticky switching action. You will need to bends its legs backwards tho.
