    ah.. blah...

    Why didn't they put it on the upper bout, why didn't they put it behind the bridge, why didn't they.. yeah.. You can't please everyone.

    There seem to be a lot of very good tele players that have no problem where it is. and for as bad as I am, the switch location is not a problem for me either. LOL!

    If the holes and slot are all on the same centerline, that's the easiest and cheapest way to machine the piece. Fender just kept doing it that way.

    I don't have a problem finding the switch when I need it. I tried the Danny Gatton 'bent switch shaft' mod, but found it a bit awkward. That switch is now on a shelf, somewhere.
