    I just received a switch like this one and this one and I can't find a wiring diagram for this kind of switch anywhere. The seller hasn't responded yet. Anybody have one? I am not particularly electronically gifted...
    This is just a standard 2 single coils, volume, tone, switch setup.

    I have a question about this switch and was hoping you could help. I have a Korean Rogue double neck that I am going to re-wire and replace the pickups (it was never done properly). The guitar has 2 humbucker pickups for each neck, 2 volumes, 2 tones, and only 2 selector switches - a 3-way Strat style pickup selector switch and a 3 way Les Paul style selector switch located between the necks. I want to use the Les Paul style switch to control on/off/both for the necks, and then set up each of the two volume/tone pair to either a) control both pickups for one of the necks, or b) control the bridge pickups for both the 6 and 12 string necks, and the other Volume/Tone pair for the neck pickups for both the 6 and 12 string necks. I have seen the Oak Grigsby 5-way super switch that has 4 separate poles that switch simultaneously. I am looking for similar functionality in a 3 way switch. I am hoping that this switch works in the same way, but with only 2 sets of poles. If this is the case, could I wire one side of the switch to control the switching of the 12 string pickups (Bridge, Neck or Both) and the other side of the switch to control the 6 string neck in the same manner (Bridge, Neck or Both)? This way, the strat style 3-way toggle would be able to effectively switch the pickups on both necks in tandem. Thanks for any help on this!
