READ BEFORE VOTING PLEASE!!!

Which do you guys think is a more versatile pickup switching arrangement?

Option 1:
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

Option 2:
Push-Pull Down Positions

Position 1: Treble Humbucker
Position 2: Both Humbuckers
Position 3: Bass Humbucker

Push-Pull Up Positions

Position 4: Bridge Single Coil
Position 5: Both Single Coils
Position 6: Neck Single Coil

Option 3:
Neither. Post your own variation.

Also as a side question could the push-pull arrangement in option 2 be set up on a 6-way rotary switch?

Rotaries are just a pain. Many PRS owners with Custom's that have rotaries switch over to the McCarty mod which is a Push-Pull.

Imo, 5-way blade is best in it's simplicity.
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

Haha you are describing the pickup selector of the Customs in the Rotary option. Did you copy and paste? I grew to get used to it, but the flick switch thing is easier.

I'd go with the push-pull option personally. What's a killswitch do if I might ask?

independant on off switch for each pickup with a push pull to coil split bridge humbucker and the tone knob to have a black ice mod to make it an overdrive control

independant on off is a pain cause you need to make two separate movements to go from neck to bridge. also, i would personally add a coil tap to neck as opposed to the bridge (if you could only have one). this is a pretty awesome mod:
thers a two way switch for parallel and series modes, and a normal 5 way.

Parallel
1. neck HB in parallel with itself
2. outer coils in parallel with each other
3. norths in series, souths in series, in parallel with each other
4. inner coils in parallel with each other
5. bridge HB in parallel with itself

Series
1. neck HB in series with itself
2. outer coils in series with each other
3. both series HB's in series with each other
4. inner coils in series with each other
5. bridge HB in series with itself

every single sound is humbucking btw.

My jackson is tight! its got this configuration
Top- Volume for the Neck pickup, push pull for coil-tapping
Middle - Volume for my bridge pickup
Bottom - Tone
Its nice because i can get the neck pickup cleaner, or for fun i can turn the volume off my neck pickup and do some cool tom morello stuff. Killswitch action
