....but not the right angle one.

I have a strange issue where the wood around the toggle switch broke and now the toggle switch just "floats". (Actually, I've been securing it with blue painter's tape....)

I'm pretty sure I could remedy this by putting in a standard, les paul-like toggle switch (one who's connection doesn't happen at an angle but, instead, directly behind it).

Anyone have a good reason why this shouldn't be done?

I do realize that it would no longer be a "stock" TB....but I think that issue might already have been taken care of when the wood broke.

So, yeah......any input?

I do not know the extent of the damage to the wood around the toggle switch but if it is not to bad you could get a metal washer that would fit into the inset area around the toggle.It would let you keep the original toggle.
Using a metal washer on each side of the wood would make it stronger then the original design.
Peace,
Pete
