    Hi all -- I've searched but cannot find a wiring diagram to accomplish: master volume, master tone and a toggle switch (to reside in the unused tone pot spot) to activate the neck pickup so as to be able to get Neck+Bridge sounds. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Don't have a schem for you, but for the toggle all you need is a SPST switch wired between the neck p/u lug on the selector and the "out" lug on the selector.

    So, a switch between A and B?

    IMO.... I would approach this the way Brent Mason wired his tele. Three way switch that works with the bridge/neck pickups.... then put the middle pickup on a blender knob.
    The guitar looks stock, still gets all the stock tones, yet also adds the "bridge/neck" combo easily and naturally.

    I never would have thought of this! But.... looking at the diagram, can you just get the middle pickup on its own?
