I know this has already been discussed here, but I have a slight variation. I want to use one of these, with a 3 way switch, to run the middle pickup in series with whichever pickup is selected (99% of the time it will be the bridge for solos).

2 questions - first, will these work? They are a pushbutton DPDT, so in theory they should. Second, what kind of glue should I use to glue the bottom of a spacer to the top of the switch (so the button has room to move), and the top of said spacer to the underside of the pickguard? I don't want it to come off (obviously) but I also don't want to to ruin my pickguard.

Lastly, if one of you galaxy-brain electrical people who are far smarter than me happen to have a diagram laying around that you could post, I would be enormously grateful.

Hi.

Is this on a Nashville Tele / Tele with three pickups? I’m guessing yes.

I just wrote a long reply, only to realise I can’t help you - doh. I need to read things more carefully.

Anyway, good luck.

Deaf Eddie is a member here. PM him.

Not sure he'll know about mounting the switch. Odds are good on the wiring.

There's other pretty good with wiring here too. Eddie's my go to guy.
