    I have a used 5 way I want to wire into my lash-up Squier Tele, but I can't find out anything about it. It is a pcb type Chinese switch but with 3 resistors on an extension tab (see pic bottom right). These resistors are tracked to individual switch position solder tabs. I am putting in a 4 wire Kent Armstrong humbucker at the neck and keeping an original Fender bridge p/u and want to have all possibilities. Has anyone any experience of these switches, used them, seen them? I don't remember where it came from ( I've done a bit of modding for friends now and then). It would seem that the resistors would suit either s/c or h/b depending on the position. Strange 5 way switch.JPG Any help would be much appreciated, a wiring diagram fantastic!
    Thanks for looking, Rich:)
