Official Fender S-1 Switch Parts

Good news, friends – we now have the official Fender parts for Telecaster and Stratocaster S-1 switches. This is a direct response to your part requests, so we hope you enjoy these parts and the modding that follows.

We had hoped to sell complete kits for these S-1 switches, but our agreement with Fender requires us to sell the parts exactly as we receive them. To lessen the confusion, here’s the complete breakdown of the new parts and what you need to buy for your application:

For Strat S-1 Switches

Your first choice is color. Fender has provided black, aged white, and parchment knobs and caps for your switches. So first, pick your knob color and be sure to get the appropriate  matching cap:

Black

005-9267-029 – Fender Black S-1 Switch Stratocaster Knob
005-9266-029 – Fender Black S-1 Switch Stratocaster Caps

Aged White

005-9267-030 – Fender Aged White S-1 Switch Stratocaster Knob
005-9266-030 – Fender Aged White S-1 Switch Stratocaster Cap

Parchment

005-9267-049 – Fender Parchment S-1 Switch Stratocaster Knobs
005-9266-049 – Fender Parchment S-1 Switch Stratocaster Caps

Yes, we’re aware that these parts are packaged in a somewhat counter-intuitive manner – but like we said, we have to sell these official Fender parts in the same way we received them – and this is how we got them.

Next, pick up the following parts:

005-9278-000 – Fender Coupling Sleeve for S-1 Switch
006-1257-000 – 500K Pot Assembly for Strat S-1 Switch

For Tele S-1 Switches

Only one decision to make for Telecasters – 250K or 500K pot:

006-1260-000 – 250K Pot Assembly for Tele S-1 Switch
006-1261-000 – 500K Pot Assembly for Tele S-1 Switch

Next, get the following parts to complete your S-1 Tele switch:
