    Position 1, bridge and volume. Position 2, bridge with neck blend and volume. Position 3, neck and volume.

    I think I've got the visual already on how to do this with a 3-way switch. Any of you guys tried this? I've been an Esquire player for the last few years, and the standard modern Tele wiring just doesn't do it for me. I think I'd like switching between an unloaded bridge pickup to a little neck blend better when it comes to a 2 pickup setup.

    This was really really driving me crazy trying to figure this out. I thought I had it originally, but I didn't.

    So, here's the original Broadcaster type wiring...

    Here's what I think will work. Sorry for the crappy mspaint butchering, but I don't have GIMP, Inkscape, or anything better on the computer I'm on right now.

    Edit: Image removed. This wont work because I need an extra connection from A1 to A2 for the bridge in position 2.

    Remember this is supposed to be...

    Position 1 - Bridge only
    Position 2 - Bridge & neck blend
    Position 3 - Neck only

    This works, as pictured, just FYI. Not sure that I like it though.
