Positions 7 and 10 on my PRS Custom 24 (1999) are my fav sounds... what's equivalent w/out 5way knob?

(I've got an SG and Tele I'm messing around with and lookin at Phat Cats, splitting, etc)




From the PRS site:
22 Fret - 2 PRS Dragon II Humbuckers
- 24 Fret - PRS HFS Treble Pickup and Vintage Bass Humbuckers
- 5 Position Rotary-Hybrid Pickup System, Master Volume and Tone Control

ROTARY POSITIONS

Position 10: Treble pickup
Position 9: Outside coils- deep and clear - parallel
Position 8: Series single coils – Warm version of the "in between the treble and middle pickups"
Position 7: Parallel single coils – Crisp version of the "in between the treble and middle pickups"
Position 6: Bass pickup

10 is just full on bridge humbucker. 7 is sort of like the middle positin on a Tele. I always kind of liked the 5-way on my Custom 22. Wish I had it back.

10 = Full bridge humbucker
7 = both humbuckers split

So if you had a traditional 2-humbucker guitar you would get 7 by using a push-pull pot to split both humbuckers and then putting it in the middle position (both pickups on). If you have a 2-humbucker guitar with a 5-way switch, you can get a 5-way that is pre-wired to give you the same combinations as the PRS rotary 5-way:
