    so my favorite bass of all time is broken. my friend was playing it and he thought the 4-position switch went to more positions than 4 and turned it wayy to far. it only works in two positions now... anyone out there know a parts source for this switch?

    allparts and gibson both do not carry it.

    Trust me, he's not going to have ten bidders! Bid $5, and you'll be sure to get one.

    Even better, bid $5 each for two of them, and you'll have a spare.
