Post Datera gammal strata-switch?
Ni som är experter på US-vintage - går det att se exakt årtal?

Ganska stort spann på CRL-switcharna.


Telecaster/Stratocaster Switches1950: On the first single pickup Esquires Fender used a different flat looking 3-way switch.1950 to 1953: Early style CRL 1452 3-way switch with two patent numbers (2291516, 2291517). Switch made of metal and a fiberous brown bakelite type material holding the switch contact that has flat side cuts. This style of switch started with the 1950 double pickup Esquire.1953 to 1962: CRL 1452 3-way switch with three patent numbers and the bakelite with flat side cuts.

1963 to 1965: Teles and Strats still use the CRL 1452 3-way switch, but the fiberous brown bakelite material that holds the switch contacts is replaced with a less fiberous brown bakelite (lighter in color) that is cut round (like a half moon, instead of having flat sides). The center wheel is still brown bakelite.

1965 to circa 1973: Teles and Strats still use the CRL 1452 3-way switch with the less fiberous brown bakelite round cut (half moon) center. But now the center wheel is white plastic instead of brown bakelite. May or may not have a Diamond logo (seen both ways).

circa 1973 to early 1980s: CRL 1452 switches still look basically the same as the previous version, but only one patent number. Definately a Diamond logo during this period. These switches still say "Made in USA" but are actually only assembled in the USA (parts made in Japan).

1977 to present: Fender strats use a CRL 5-way switch on many models, which looks the same as the CRL 3-way switch but with two added notches in the switch lever metal.CRL 220-283.

Jo så där långt har jag ju också kommit, och jag vet att delarna kommer från en strata från 60-talet men det är ju ett spann på 8 år. Det kanske inte går att komma längre.

Korrekt svar på frågan är Nej.

Med ett undantag, om du själv plockar ut den ur en orginalgitarr med obrutna lödningar.
Och då kan du ändå inte styrka exakt år senare.

Folk tenderar att använda årtal som är populära i USA , 59, 62 , 69 .....

63 och 68 är tex svärtade av de mord som skedde....

ALLA Amber CTS switchknoppar på Ebay är från en Gibson LP 59, fast de fanns på 100 olika gitarrer mellan 1952 till 1962 :roll:

Samma med t-tops till Gibson. Alltid från mitten av 60-talet trots att de såg exakt likadana ut fram till 73 :mrgreen:

Vintage är bara ljug, lögn och religiös tro :D
