My 3 way switch is different..

    ..than the ones in the diagrams I have printed out. Instead of wheel shaped, it is box shaped and has a row of small tabs across the bottom to solder to.
    It has SEON JIN on one side and NP on the other.
    I was intending to install 2 blade type HBs and a push-pull for volume, but now am a bit taken back. I could live without the push-pull, if need be, but wish to continue.
    All of the wires soldered to the switch are white. And some tabs have a tiny jumper between them.
    If I could just get the HB in the neck position tonight, I'd high-5 myself.
    But doing both would be unreal.
    Any diagrams for this type of 3-way?

    Thanks...

    Yes, Lunchie, but the 8 soldering tabs are sticking out. Same concept, though.

    It can be done, the picture below is for a 5 Way to import but it should be the same concept. The middle 2 will be common.

    However if you are going through the trouble of replacing the pickup it maybe worth getting rid of the cheap import switch for a Fender switch. They are a whopping $10 at GC.

    Yeah, Lunchie,
    I ran over to the GC tonight, not quite in time, they close at 7:00, dammit.
    But the tech guy told me they have 'em in stock, on his way out. I'll wait til tomorrow...That way it will look like the plans I printed. Much easier.

    Funny that you said 'it can be done'. I was looking at some old spaghetti western titles today and "It Can Be Done, Amigo" stood out for me.
    Weird.

    Thanks, man. Merry Chistmas.
