    I have a Modern Player Telecaster Plus and I decided to repurpose the coil split switch. I wanted it to be a neck-on switch so that no matter what position the 5-way selector is on, the neck pickup can be on as well. This would allow me to have the neck pickup on with the bridge humbucker. However, the issue I ran into is that when I turn the switch on, no matter what position the 5-way selector is on, ONLY the neck pickup is on. My wiring diagrams are below.

    One thing I did notice is that unlike the first switch diagram, there is no wire connecting the last switch lug to the opposite side lug. It goes straight from the last lug to the volume pot.

    Does anyone know what the issue is, judging from my wiring? Thanks for any help!

    The first picture is where I got the switch wiring from, the second picture is how my switch looks, and the 3 picture is the wiring overall.
