Re: S series switchplate - are they all the same
The early Sabers had just just a plastic scratch plate cover for 5 way surround mounted with screws,by 90 they had a moulded hump type surround with allen head bolts and nuts mounted from cavity. This had to do with the length of the selector lever sticking out from the body,the hump version making things neater. Both are the same shape and dimensions so retro fitting hump style should be fine if you are changing the 5 way to a new unit. However the original 5 way MAY have a shorter lever and not work with the modern hump surround. I can't be sure though as i have never actually swapped out an old 5 way.
