Hey all. 

I have an 85 Thunder 1A guitar that I need a couple of switches for. 

The horn switch is snapped as it the bottom pick up switch. 

If any of you have the bits I need then I’m happy to make a deal. 

Thanks in advance. 👍🏻

These can be replaced with standard off the shelf parts.

The mini toggle is an ON-ON double pole with a flat handle, not a bat handle.

To replace the original Westone selector is similarly straight forward, unless you are picky about authenticity. The original was a bit more elegant but a regular 3-way toggle works just fine. What you see above the surface looks the same.

One of our members may have an original for sale if you're interested.

Cool. That looks like the horn switch

The other switch is a different shape though. I’m really hoping to get as close to genuine condition as possible. Do you have any of the ‘wedge/bat’ shaped switches?

I’m interested in a horn switch for sure. Cheers.

Those are mini switches as noted above and have "flat" NOT "bat" handles. These are available online form many sources.

Google is your friend depending on where in the world you are located.

Those switches are easy to find, eh! However - and preoare for thread hijack! - 

I'm trying to find an on/off/on DTDP flat lever in black...
