    I'm refurbing a steel guitar and want to put a modified Eldred cocked-wah into it. Because it's a steel guitar, I can't use a Tele blade switch - got to be either toggle or rotary (and I'd prefer not to use rotary). What I want is;
    1). Direct to the output jack (it'll have a volume pedal)
    2). Standard volume and tone
    3). Cocked wah.

    The only way I can figure to do this is with a DP3T switch like this one from Mouser https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetai...=sGAEpiMZZMvudeGI7i40XM9lbS6CChc20bGsZ1Tvk0I=

    Is there any other way? I can't use two DPDT switches without drilling another hole. Thoughts?

    Here's a schematic showing the internal connections of the switch. This is the only way I can figure to do it with a single toggle switch. May help someone in the future...
