    With a typical 3-way switch, you will only be able to toggle between P-90 coil, Rail coil, and parallel. You wont be able to get series.


    With an on/off/on dpdt (or spdt) you would only be able to get P-90, Rail, series. No parallel.

    so that guitar 510v only does p90/parralel/rail?...i thought it did humbucker series/p90/rail...maybe i could also add a push pull on the vol?

    Yeah, you could get a p/p to add series/parallel.
    Or you could just mount the pup in a Triple Shot and you'd have everything...series, parallel, split to screw coil, split to slug coil.

    well its on a strat with pickguard so no pu rings on it....i am hoping to get this figured out ...i am new to wiring....I am going for this option...prails 2 in bridge and single coil in neck...the guard has a 3 way pickup selector and 2 control holes....what i was thinking is this.....prails controled by the 3 way pickup selector slide switch..with a pushpull on the vol....and the other control is simple a volume/blend to bring in the neck and blend it in....but this will not allow me to just have the neck pickup on alone i think......darn i thought i had it figured out...

    I created the attached wiring diagram based on a post by ParameterMan back in Aug 2011.

    Has anyone used the proposed schematic? I just purchased a P-Rails Trembucker bridge to start modifying my Modern Player Tele.
