Wood switch tips or switch covers for Gibson® Les Paul, LP 3-way toggle switches and Fender® blade pickup selector switches (3 and 5 way). The standard threads are 8-32. Many imported and kit guitars such as Eastman and Warmoth will have metric threads which are M4X0.7 (4mm) or for Carvin®, some Epiphone, PRS "SE" and Schecter® use the smaller M3.5x0.6 (3.5mm). You can sometimes identify the open frame switches by the mounting nut on the top of the guitar. Switchcraft uses a fine knurl nut with 48 points, the imports use a coarse knurl nut with only 32 points or just a hex nut. "Switchcraft" will be stamped into the metal below the threads on the domestic switches. The smaller metric M3.5x0.6 threads are often found on switches enclosed in a rectangular metal box. Some Epiphone guitars have M3x0.5 threads just to confuse things a little further.

The tele®, telecaster® barrel switch tip is available as are the tapered switch covers for Fender strat®, Stratocaster® that use CRL 3-way and 5-way blade switches which are .052" (1.3mm) x .190" (4.8mm) x .310" (8mm). Wood Fender® switch tips also fit the EMG, Oak Grigsby and Tritan brand switches. Most Asian Strat and Tele copies with 3 and 5 way blade witches will use a narrow blade that's .050"(1.3mm) x .140" (3.6mm) x .3" (7.7mm) long.
