    Default Threeway toggle/wiring question

    I am having a guitar built and the pickup configuration will be HSS.

    I want a Wolfgang style threeway toggle that does this:

    Position 1: Humbucker only
    Position 2: Both single coils only
    Position 3: Neck single coil only

    The pickups will be a Jet City Ballbuster humbucker of some kind and Jason Lollar Vintage Blonde single coils.

    What switch do I need to accomplish this?

    Thanks in advance...

    Do you have a wiring diagram already figured out? This is the most flexible 3-way switch I can think of off the top of my head, but I'm not 100% sure if It'll be able to do what you want...

    Ah, that's the switch I was looking for. If you go by this diagram: http://www.dimarzio.com/sites/defaul...t1111_1v1t.pdf

    it shows a setup for a 3 way switch where the 3 positions are neck, middle, bridge. All you need to do is modify the diagram utilizing the extra poles on the switch so that the middle position switches on the neck AND middle pickups.

    I posted the same question in a different forum. I got the same type of switch as an answer... I'll pass it on to the experts to see if it will work...

    EDIT: just saw the schematic, mrj... I don't know much about wiring but I'll also pass that with your comments along as well...
