Hi everyone

I just bought a Hagstrom Swede but with a problem. I opened the box to notice that one of the 3-way tone filter switches had broken off.

Does anyone have any idea if this can be fixed or should i just try superglue.

ps: I live in Australia and bought the guitar from the US.

I saw in a couple of pictures that on Bucketheads Les Paul (only some pictures) that his neck pickup is painted in white. Can anyone explain to me why he would do this, and if there are any pros and cons.

Swede models come with a three way toggle switch on the upper part of the guitar for pickup selection, as well as a 3-Way tone filter on the cutaway side.
The three way filter allows for a high cut, low cut, or center bypass (don't ask me).

I'm not sure how he has two on his guitar, all the Swedes I've seen only have a toggle for pickup selection, and one for tone filtering.

Post a couple of pictures of how it broke off and we can help you better.

You could probably just remove the entire switch and replace it with a new one for fairly cheap.

If you bought it new I'd probably have a word with who you purchased it from, that would be an issue that needs to be brought up.

^ yeah. i mean if you can solder at all that'd be handier than sending it back to the US, as long as you're sure there's nothing else wrong with it.

If he can't solder he may as well just use super glue to put it back on, or if it needs a pro setup he could have it replced by a pro.
