Its not a short scale, but I love my squier 51. the electonics have been failing. I have just replaced the jack with a switchcraft, but now the 3 way selector switch is failing.

does anybody know what pot/switch to purchase? I have been looking all over....

My plan is to leave the neck PU because i think it sounds great and install a GFS Mean 90 in the bridge, and redo the pots... which would kill the coil split.

anybody have ideas?

I'd try contact cleaner first, but it's a 4-pole 3-position rotary. If you look up the '51s wiring diagram you'll see how it's wired stock.

Maybe hold out to see if you want one with more positions since you're going to re-do stuff though, you could use a 4-way rotary for the coil stuff without the push pull, like the 4-way Tele/Jagumarr scheme.

with a mean 90, it would make it 2 single coils. I would like a tone pot. but not sure what combo there could be with a SS. maybe out of phase?

and i think the switch might be toast, its when you tap it it goes off, wiggle back forth... etc...

but need to find that rotary switch 1st...

You need a 4 pole 3 position rotary switch. Ebay is your friend. Something like this: 4 pole 3 position rotary switch
