5-way switch

I seem to have somewhat worn out my 5-way switch in my 7vwh
I've always been partial to the Fender 5-ways.
Does anyone know if the Fender switches will fit without any other mods?
Peace!

The only possible mod I can think of is you'll have to ream out the screw holes for the larger diameter screws. Plus the screws themselves are usually "round heads" so they'll look different (but who cares?)The route should be deep enough.

Thanks Frank!

reaming the holes is not a problem at all.
I was wondering if the screw holes would match up.

...didn't want to pull everything apart & then be stuck without a working switch!

Thanks again!
