    I want to wire my Tele in a non standard way. I want it to be standard 3 way with the 4th position being a tone bypass, basically the 3rd position of a Esquire. I don't want to use a additional switch or a no load tone pot. I would like to keep it all in this one 4 way switch. Is it even possible with a standard 4 way switch?

    Probably not difficult. But it'll only work in one pickup position (I assume the bridge?). With a 2 pole 4 way should work.

    Yes, the bridge is what I want to bypass the tone.

    I mispoke... (it's late)

    With a 2 pole 4 way switch I don't believe it's possible. I'm trying to find out if a 4 pole 4 way exists. I need it for a different application, but your example is yet another reason why it's needed.
