    Does anyone have a diagram for this? Not looking to do anything other than the standard 6 positions. It will be with a 1 volume and 1 tone control.
    Thanks!

    not knowing what you want the 6 positions to do, it's impossible for anyone to begin to suggest how you should wire it...

    ok....give me a few minutes to draw it up...

    here ya go.

    You'll need a 6 pos, 3-pole switch. Additionally, the use of a "make-before-break" switch will reduce popping sounds as you switch positions.

    EDIT: Schem removed for lack of apparent interest

    You can actually do it with 2 poles: in that diagram, connect the middle pu to lugs 3 and 4 on the leftmost pole and 5 on the rightmost one and you can drop the middle pole.
    +1. I used this one from Stewmac a long time ago and I'm pretty sure it was make-before-break, you could drop them a line to confirm (they're very helpful and responsive). If it isn't and you're cool with using a set-screw knob, this one from Mouser is for sure.

    good catch...yes, a 2=pole will suffice...
