Hey guys I have been trying to find some parts for my guitars. I want to put original parts or some that are as close to original as possible. I am needing the 5 way rotary switch, the two toggle switches that engage the fx modules and the mini toggle switch on the Vulcan!
Thanks in advance!
Awesome guitars!
Have a great day!

Rotary switch will have to locate a 5-way that 4 poles. I found some on ebay a while back, but they had to be wired slightly differently due to the pole configurations on the switch. There is one on guitar fetish - F221 - as well. The thing is, the "common" switched ports are located in different locations on the switch. I also had to cut the post on the rotary switch too because it was too long.

The large "flapper" switch for the MPC modules can be purchased from radio shack. It is a DP/DT switch. They are the exact same part, just made 40 years or so later. That is the only place I know to get that part. If you find the part number you can do a search online with the part number, might find on ebay.

The miniature switch is also available from a lot of guitar parts sights as well as mouser.com and other parts sights (maybe ebay as well). Guitar Parts Resource has an excellent selection in chrome, gold, and black. Not cheap but right part. Also, got a "hack" kind of message about malware when I signed on there (never had that before).

You can find them out there, but you have to look.
