I'm thinking about making some repairs to my standard. I'd like to replace the saddles and the toggle switch has some issues. I'll be sure to save all of my original parts, but I do need to replace them.

Should I get the DiMarzio Switchcraft Toggle Switch for Gibson to replace the switch? It looks very similar to what's in there now.

Also the bridge saddles, would the saddles for the Fender Strat bridge work? I've been looking at the FerraGlide Saddles. Again, they look like they'll work.

Any recommendations before I buy?

Thanks all...Joe

Switchcraft right angle from Allparts will work and should be the same as the one in there. The saddles as best i know were machined by Bean. Strat saddles are a bit longer than standard Bean ones, so try and find a shorter set. I put graphite ones on a standard a long time ago and I had to shave the backs down to intonate correctly.
