    Hi all. Im looking for some help.
    Im upgrading my MIM HSS strat. Ive had it about 3 years and want more sound choices.
    Ive been reading a lot about the big apple strat and am going to try to clone it.

    This is the guitar i have now

    This is the diagram im going to work from
    Have to leave link as the pic is in pdf

    This is my setup so far


    I want to use the 2 tone push/pulls to each control a single pickup.
    I want them to control series/parallel, one for the bridge and one for the neck.

    3 questions....... How do i connect the push/pulls into the big apple strat wiring circuit, ( a diagram would be much appreciated)?
    and... on the big apple i want to leave out the 2 resisters, do i have to replace them with normal wire or leave them off completely?
    And... is the big apples 2 pole superswitch connections the same if i use a normal 4 pole superswitch?

    Thanks in advance for any help i get.
    Ive posted on other forums and they said it cant be done without either flipping the magnets or messing up 2 and 4 positions.
    What do you guys think?
