    Hi everyone,

    I'm thinking of creating a kindda Frankenstein Tele :lol: :
    Based on a cheap crappy chinese copy of a SS Telecaster, I'd like to :
    1. Replace the neck pickup by a P90 soapbar, that I would buy at Guitarfetish.com.
    2. Replace the switch by a 4-way switch
    3. Re-wire the circuit with the following : positions 1-3 : same as a classic Esquire. Position 4 : P90 alone

    First, what do you guys think about this idea? Is it completely non-sense?
    If some of you think it's feasable, can someone help me with the wiring scheme?

    Thank you guys for your help!

    Thanks for the support, man!
    But actually I really suck at electronics... I would really need some wiring diagrams to help!

    That sounds awesome!

    It's going to look a lot like the Esquire wiring diagram with the differences only on the 4th position lugs. Someone more proficient than me will probably be able to mark the Esquire diagram up with the 4th position wiring.
