    My plan is 3 toggles. Neck and bridge will get on/off switches and middle will get on/off/on 2p2t switch so I can get on in parallel or on in series with other pickups.

    I may just do a master volume for all 3 pickups and master tone for neck and bridge pickups. May try 250k first. Going with Black Pearl on the Orange Strat partscaster.

    The humbucker pickups are going into another guitar that they sounded better in.

    The only time I've seen 5-way blade and 3 toggles is when double coil pickups were involved like on a H/S/H Strat style guitar for coil tapping, coil splits and phase switching.

    Depends what you mean by quack. I would expect a rather conventional sound because nothing is out of phase and that configuration is so normal for 2 pickup guitars. The magnetic polarities are the same so it will not be hum cancelling.

    Hendrix used to get some quack on his Strat with all 3 pickups the same wind direction and polarity in a in between selection on his wore out 3-way switch, but the pickups were close to each other.
    The neck and bridge pickups are far enough away to not give that quack, like playing the neck and bridge on a older Tele.

    Yes, my CP60’s Strat with the Custom 69 pickups did not come with a RWRP middle pickup. The 2 and 4 positions aren’t nearly as pronounced as a typical RWRP and it’s as buzzy as a single position but there is a quack present for sure.
