    I'm trying to figure out how to wire my Tele to have the tone out of the circuit in the back position and be like a standard Tele in the other 3 positions. Is this possible with a 4 way switch?

    Thanks,
    Billy

    I can't come up with a way to do that with a 2 pole switch. You may just have to go with a no load tone pot.

    Should be possible. I have a 3 pup tele w 5 way strat switch. I have the tone ONLY wired to the bridge pup, so when i play the bridge on its own i can roll off some highs. In combi or the others don't need any roll off. Do you mean the opposite? If yes, why? With 'back position' do you mean bridge pup?
