I am looking for and cannot find on ebay, craigslist etc. a 5 way switch or cream colored numbered backplate for my sunburst 330MPC. Anyone out here have one they want to get rid of, or know where I can find one?
Thanks

Here's a whole wiring harness:

Not cheap though. I think McB knows of a aftermarket switch that works, maybe he can chime in.

Thanks alot, I have been on there looking and havent seen that one. They must have just added it today. I ordered it and will have it installed.
Thanks again for the help!!!!
Will post a pic of it. I have been playing LesPauls for years and forgot how nice that guitar was. I got it new in 1976 directly from St Louis Music Supply. It was the 2nd 330 shipped over. Very cool!!!!!! I removed the 5 pos switch years ago and lost it, installed active emg's. What an idiot, I kept the original pickups and had them reinstalled but the shop couldnt find a switch or figure out the wiring. I found a wiring harness on here somewhere to wire 5 position switch back in so Thanks Again.

Did you find the 1-5 ring to go around it? If you don't have it, let me know, I might have one and will look for it.

I bought wiring harness off eBay but need the plastic cream colored ring if you have one.
