    Help. I need a wiring diagram for a tele Switch for 3 pickups-Not a 3 pickup Nashville style tho.

    I don't want any pots, no volume, no tone pots. I want a switch to allow bridge position, bridge & neck position, & neck position....and to switch to only a middle strat pickup....

    What switch do I need?

    I need a diagram. thank you.

    If you fit a normal Strat 5-way switch and swap the Neck and Middle lugs you get these 5 positions:
    1. Bridge
    2. Bridge + Neck
    3. Neck
    4. Neck + Middle
    5. Middle
    You’ll only need to use one side of a Strat switch. The first three positions give you “Tele switching” and if you whack the switch all the way forward you get that Middle pickup by itself.
