    No, the strings just lie across the top of them. I've got a set on one of my Teles and they are fine. The original Fender Tele round brass saddles didn't have any slots either.

    It's possibly a little bland looking at the moment, but you haven't got all the hardware on.

    I'd also think about moving the bridge pickup back slightly so it's nearer the bridge (or moving the...

    Maybe try some engraving in the wood? Use a Dremel with an engraving bit and follow some pencil lines? Obviously practice on scrap wood first.

    Weird you can't easily get a flat toggle on-on-on switch, but at least you canget one at a price (though there must be a supplier somewhere who does one and supplies Realparts/Allparts).

    Possibly the edge of the hole where the strings appear out of the block? The graphite block is on the top of the saddle, but the string also wraps around what appears to be a round bar at the back...

    Possibly the edge of the hole where the strings appear out of the block?

    I'd also check the saddles for any rough edges. You may need to sand them with some fine grit paper and apply some lube to them.

    A 2-position switch won't do the same job as a 3-position switch! The diagram works, but you don't get the 'both pickups in parallel' position.

    I see you went for the knob pointers. I fit those as well. They just add a certain something I think.

    Looking good!

    Sorry about that! Was looking more at the DPDT thing and the flat handle than the switch configuration.

    ON-ON is two position, so you won't have the mixed position available, just neck or bridge....
