SD Lil 59 and 5 way switch???

I'm installing a Lil 59 in my Tele and would like to have the option to coil split the Lil 59 and or in or out of phase....does anyone know if this can be done with a 5 way switch, if not how about with a dost mini toggle??

I just installed a Lil' '59 in one of my Teles, and I have a DPDT mini switch that is going to be mounted in between the pots. Seymour Duncan has a schematic to use this switch to select series, parallel, or one coil only for a humbucker on their website.

If you want to just do a coil cut, a push-pull will get you there without modding the control plate, and a second push-pull will handle the phase reversal for one pickup. Keep in mind, though, that many Tele control cavities are routed with two different depths to the bottom, and there isn't a lot of clearance for the depth of the push-pulls in the middle of the cavity where one of the pots is situated.

That's part of the reason I thought about the 5 way switch, is it possible to use a standard 5 way switch from a Strat?

No, a standard five-way doesn't work for more complex wiring. A five-way superswitch might get you there, though.
