Looking for some help and wiring diagram for redoing my Nashville tele. My apologies in advance if this has already been covered in another thread but I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for.

I just received the 4-way switch and mini-toggle from Stewmac. I think I have the parts, definitely lacking the smarts:)

Here's what I want to do:

1. Basic 4-way Tele wiring with N-B series option (N, N-B series, N-B parallel, B).

2. Ability to have the middle PU on its own

3. Ability to have the middle PU added to one of the combos in #1.

The mini-toggle I ordered is DPDT with ON-ON-ON. The other diagrams I have seen show how you would add the middle pup into the blend using the toggle, but I would like to also be able to have the middle pup on its own as well.

Assuming the mini toggle switch will do what I want it to do, I would want the isolated middle PU to work when you put the mini-toggle in the middle position.

BTW- I don't want to go with one of the super switch options. I have had 2 regular Teles with the 4-way switch and that is what works best for me.

thanks!

I figured out how to wire the mini-toggle with a little help from a diagram on the Stewmac site and my trusty multimeter.......
