    I have a tele and instead of the standard 3-way switch, I want to use a mini-toggle to get series, parallel, and bridge only.

    Anyone know which mini toggle switch I need and how I would wire it?

    Thanks!

    You need a 4-pole on-on-on like this one:

    http://www.newark.com/multicomp/1m4...-5a-250v/dp/95M4624?in_merch=Popular Products

    Not currently in stock but they'll receive it on Feb. 1st. Allparts has it but charges $25 for it. As is usually the case with general purpose electronic components, they're way overpriced in guitar parts suppliers.

    If the lugs are:

    1 4 7 10
    2 5 8 11
    3 6 9 12

    Wire as follows:

    - Jumper between 6 and 9
    - Jumper between 8 and 10
    - 4 to ground
    - 11 is the output (to the vol. pot input)
    - Neck pu ground to ground
    - Neck pu hot to 6-9
    - Bridge pu ground to 5
    - Bridge pu hot to 11
