    Anyone have a diagram for the following?

    Master Volume.
    Tone for neck and middle pickups
    Tone for bridge humbucker

    pos 1 - bridge humbucker
    pos 2 - split humbucker + middle (quack)
    pos 3 - split humbucker +neck (like tele)
    pos 4 - middle + neck (quack)
    pos 5 - neck

    If its not possible, is there a similar diagram for the same but with pos 3 as just the middle pickup alone.

    I'm assuming I will need a 500k pot for volume, 250k for the tone for the singles, and 500k for the humbucker. Also I'm assuming I will need a super switch.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    That is possible with a super switch (4 pole 5 position). I am not at home until Monday, but it nobody draws it up by then I can draw it up for you.

    Thanks, that would be really cool.

    I have checked out both pages. So far I haven't found a setup like the one I've requested. I have also checked out DiMarzio.

    I would be willing to go master tone and use a blender pot to roll in the neck pickup to get the tele-like sounds I'm looking for.

    Any help at all will be much appreciated.

    Genius switching modes. Very straight-eahead-useful.
    Makes me wonder if I could use a humbucker.
