    Hi all,

    I have a quick question about a modification I have in mind to the Craig Anderton 5-way switch scheme as posted here (2nd one down):

    http://www.tdpri.com/wiring5wayStrat.htm

    I'm wondering if there would be a way that the 4th position (with the tone capacitor) would use the bridge pickup instead of the neck pickup. I actually had it wired this way for a while, which was wrong because the series (5th) position didn't work. But I realized I really like the bridge pickup with the tone capacitor. I don't know enough about these things to know whether such a scheme would require one of those superswitches.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Probably a stupid question, I guess. Oh well. I'll take the silence to mean the answer to my question is no.

    There's a zillion wiring schemes out there and it's as easy to get overwhelmed, as it is to get ignored... Cruise through Seymour Duncans website, they have tons of wiring schemes and you'll find one you like... or Google Tele 5 way mod, I used this on one of mine. Gives you, neck, neck & bridge parallel, bridge no tone, bridge w/tone, and neck & bridge in series ( which cranks!) pm me if you can't find it and I'll scan my scheme and send it to ya. good luck!
