    Bit of a weird one here. I'd like to use my CTS plastic shrouded Push-Pull for selecting from two different capacitors (0.047uF and 0.022uF) and the Fender 5-way selector switch for coil splitting. I will be using a standard volume pot.

    Found how to use two tone caps here: https://www.sixstringsupplies.co.uk/cts-push-pull-pot-wiring

    Pos 1: Bridge
    Pos 2: Bridge Coil Split
    Pos 3: Bridge + Neck
    Pos 4: Neck Coil Split
    Pos 5: Neck

    Does anyone have a wiring diagram for this a strange setup?

    I believe that you will need a super switch in order to implement that switching scheme.

    Funny you should mention that. I just figured that out too. I’m giving up on the whole idea and just going to wire it up with a Fender 3-way I have and will use the CTS tone pot for splitting the humbuckers.
