    I have been thinking about a 5 way switch mod for a coming build. Not sure if this will work, but that's what you guys are for:D

    So I'm thinking...

    Neck Only
    Neck-Bridge Series
    Neck-Bridge Parallel
    Bridge Only W/ Eldred Mod
    Bridge Only (normal)

    So, is there an existing schematic for something like this?
    What switch should I use?


    Thoughts?

    It's not exact, but this is close...and I'm not sure why it's backwards. This one has the Danny Gatton cocked wah rather than the Eldred. You need a 4-pole super-switch. If you plan on using a traditional tele control cavity and plate, get the narrow version here.

    Wow, thanks!

    That pic makes my brain hurt, but I think I can deal with it.

    Not sure the difference between the Eldred/Gatton mods? Maybe just the cap/res values?
    Also, as I read it this says the Arlo mod....

    Thanks for the link as well, I do want to use a standard plate.

    Any interference issues with that switch? I read in another thread on 4-way switches that there were some fitment and interference issues, but that might have been related to the top hat.....

    Arlo and Gatton mean the same thing. They both refer to the mod that give you a nasal tone like you get from a wah that's on but, um...up, I guess. I use the Gatton name because I fell in love with the tone from Danny Gatton's Redneck Jazz records.
