    Are you a toggle, blade, or rotary person?

    I've only ever used a 3 way toggle and an wondering about how great the other two options are. Also HAPPY TURKEY DAY!

    Toggle all day everyday. The placement is perfect for what I play and the sounds are the exact ones I want. I enjoy the 5 way blade and rotary for studio stuff but its not good for playing what I play live.

    5 or a 3 way blade guy here. I do like the toggle switch, but I don't like the usual placement PRS uses it. In the Tremonti and SC I do like the placement. Rotary, never liked it

    Rotary for me. I like the sounds you get that you don't with the toggle, and switching mid-song doesn't bug me (though I don't have to do it much).

    Blade or toggle for me.
    If something is too hard to do, then it's not worth doing. You just stick that guitar in the closet next to your short-wave radio, your karate outfit and your unicycle and we'll go inside and watch TV.

    Blade with rotary second and toggle last. I like that i can have tonal options without having to mess with a push/pull pot. But if i wanted too, I can add more options with a push/pull pot.

    Toggle or blade are interchangeable as long as the blade is a 3-way. Otherwise toggle first.

    I liked the rotary on my CE22, but found it sometimes hard to use in live situations with sweaty hands. I love the position of the toggle switch on my DGT, it's really easy to use Haven't tried the blade switch so I can't comment on that, aesthetically however, I prefer the toggle.

    Blade, then toggle. Blades feel real solid to me.

    I'm a blade fan. I'm also fine with a toggle as long as it's not on the upper bout.
