Where can we find the switch that goes in this housing?

HI @FireFly71, the red button is a component connected to the Fishman piezo preamp. IIR, it's just a simple push-button. I can check in with the Flex PCB team to see if we spec'd out a replacement—not sure that we did. Is yours missing?

Looks expensive…

It broke internally. I tried to fix it and it didn't work. Any info on where to get a replacement would be amazing!
Thanks for your help!

I've searched for a replacement before and never found an exact fit. Maybe the original part number is in the fine print of Parker docs or schematics somewhere?

I still have the original (printed) ‘manual’ that came with the guitar, it doesn’t show any info on that button switch. I’ll keep searching, if I find a source, I’ll report back.

Hey @FireFly71, we're working on replacement Flex PCBs as you may know, and we have been using these switches with these covers with success.

Hope this helps!
