I am going to put in Seymour Duncan P-Rails pickups into my Les Paul. I don't want to drill any holes for a mini toggle switch, and I'd prefer not to have a bunch of push pull pots. What I am wondering is if there is a pot that when down it functions like a normal pot, but when up it is a rotary selector. Then when you have selected you can push the pot back down. Is this possible?

umm, dont think it exists, the bottom of the pot would need an insane amount of connections on it

well the rotary switches have lots of places for wires to connect to them

yes, but you would also need another 2 slots for normal switch operation.

im 90% sure they dont exist.

I only need to have 4 selections with the rotary switch, HB series, HB parallel, P90, and single coil

Seeing as that range of selection would basically require a rotary switch, and you don't want to drill, you'd be best off doing 1 master volume and 1 master tone with a rotary switch for the mode selection for each pickup in the old potentiometer holes and using the 3-way to switch between the pickups.

Edit: Though correct me if I'm wrong, I've just never, ever seen an On/On/On/On switch. Mind you, mini toggle switches would have this fixed in a jiffy. I love me some mini toggles switches!

1 - get a concentric pot. use it for the volume and tone.
2 - get a rotary switch, install it in the hole where the tone control used to be.
3 - ?????????
4 - PROFIT!!!

Where could I get a concentric pot, and how do they work exactly, I've never heard of them. Yes mini toggles would work, I could have two on/off/on mini toggles with each on corrusponding to a different coil but that would defeat the purpose of not drilling any holes.

Oh, I must not be all here. I should have thought of that, but hats off to you, sir, great idea.

I bet the "profit" thing is why SYK is banned. They ARE against the rules, ya know.


I may be wrong though. Damnit, why's he banned?


Hah, I just thought it was funny. The "profit" thing, that is.

I hope he's not banned. He's answered more than a few of my questions.

That really sucks. Is it permanent? I understand moderating a forum, but he always had good advice...
