Customers Comments on my switch:

A recemt quote from the Fender Forum:

You can not compare the Gibson Varitone switch with the switch made by Big D,The Gibson switch is crap thats all there is to it,BB King has one on Lucille and does not use it,whats that tell you? Now if Gibson would install a Big D switch in Lucille I'm willing to bet that BB would use it.The problem here is that players will try out a Gibson with the switch,find the switch has a crappy sound and right away assume all Varitone switches are crappy no matter who made it.Not so.The same can be said about pups...

Other Feedback:

"If you mean the 5 position Varitone that Derek makes www.bigdguitars.com , it was short enough to fit a Les Paul and if you read my feedback about it, one of the greatest tonal changes for the money I ever made! I am very happy with it and would order more. My Luthier that works on my guitars, was very excited about it! After he installed it he kept the guitar an extra day to have fun with it... Hopefully this guitar will be in a guitar mag near you soon."

"Great product, zounds fabuluss,couldn't be a better transaction!--AaaaaYeaah-AAA"

"This was a Super Cool Deal and I'm Glad because "BIG D" Speaks the TRUTH"
