RGX 420 S 5 way "super" selector

Unread post by reasy » Fri May 17, 2019 5:38 pm

I have replaced pup selector on my RGX 420s which was a blade type "super switch". I couldn't get hold of a direct replacement so used a fender type rotary switch. It works but I have lost coil splits and duplicated both pups together. Also reversed the order but I don't care about that. Obvioulsy I muddled the wires.

Does anyone know how the yam switch positions translate to fender? The old yam switch was numbered 543210012345. The fender has no mumbers although obvious which are common terminals. Found information on 3 and (non-super) 5 ways but nothing on super 5 way. I could just replace it with simple 5 way but I assume the extra options are there to accomodate the direct toggle switch and woud like to keep original if possible.

Alternatively any one know where I can get direct replacement for the old blade type in the UK.

Any advice much appreciated

Sorted. It wasn't wiring mistake. Tiny piece of solder was shorting between a lug and one of the switch pillars. Cleaned up and all working fine. When I get some time I will post wiring diagram in case someone finds it useful.
