Hello everybody,
I'm new to this forum and this is my first post. I wanted to ask your opinion about a wiring that I'm designing for my DIY Tele.
The idea is to use three DPDT on/off/ON switches instead of the 5-way switch that I'm using now and then the usual volume and tone pots.

- Switch A (from neck pickup): on = normal wiring, off = bypass, ON = Half out of phase (HOOP) wiring
- Switch B (from bridge pickup): on = normal wiring, off = bypass, ON = Half out of phase (HOOP) wiring
- Switch C: on: parallel wiring, off = global bypass, ON = series wiring

Do you think it will work as intended?

Note that the caps values have not been set yet.

I put a slide switch on one of my two pickup guitars. It is a lot slower to change than a toggle switch. You may want to consider that.

Hi Marty,
I also thought about that possibility, and I'll probably try that circuit later this year.
Next weekend I'm going to build the wiring posted, I'll let you know how it works!
