    Hello,

    I would like to wire my Tele like this

    3-way switch + two S-1-switches
    1. Bridge only
    2. N+B in series
    3. Neck only

    First S-1-switch (in Volume knob): phase/out of phase (like in a Baja Tele)

    Second S-1-switch (in Tone knob): series/parallel (when the knob is pushed down I would like to have the parallel sound)

    Can anyone tell me, where I can find this wiring?

    Or is there a diagram, which can be easily modified (e.g. from a Baja Tele)?

    Thank you very much

    Here are two that I have.

    First one (the larger image) uses a regular push-pull (or a push-push, if you prefer) to give you series and parallel options. You can simply add a second regular push-pull on the other knob to reverse the phase of one of the pickups. (Find that wiring diagram on the Seymour Duncan site. I'm sure it's here, too, if you search.) No need for S-1s -- which are more money and require those special knobs.

    Second one I have not yet tried, but it looks cool, too. It requires only one push-pull on the tone and again -- no need for an S-1. It gives you a half-out-of-phase option rather than typical OOP, but I never cared. To my ears, they never differed enough to matter, but YMMV. Because you only need one push-pull pot, the volume is available for another push-pull to send the bridge pickup straight-to-jack -- another useful feature.

    Both options pack a lot of cool tele goodness under a standard control plate with easy-to-find parts.
