So you want a 3 way switch for the neck and middle, and a on/off switch for the bridge?

yeah it's possible. Just put the switch directly after the pickup, before the switch.

Okay, what you want is to have your neck and bridge pups hooked up to the three way switch, output to the volume pot. Then you want your bridge pup on a SDST with one output to volume, and one output to ground.

Okay, then you have your volume pot, which will work like normal, and your tone pot, which will work like normal. Do you want two tone pots? Because if you want to rig those up, then you need to go pup-switch-tone-volume-output.

Elaborate on what exactly you want, and you might get a schematic.

He was talking a bit of nonsense about mythical SDST switches. What do you want the three-way switch to do? Do you want a seperate switch to kill it?

Did I say SDST? I meant SPST.

Single Pole, Single Throw.

An on/off switch.

Use the little box up in the corner, with the pot being the volume pot.

I said to use the box in the upper right hand corner. It's the volume pot, regardless of whatever the tone pot configuration is. The main schematic is for a standard strat, so I put the box in the corner for claification, or in a case like this.
