    Default HSS Strat Wiring Diagram For Coil Split Using 3-Way Switch

    1999 Strat is standard apart from the trembucker just installed in the bridge with a 500k volume pot.. 5 way selector, 1 master volume, 2 tone controls (bridge, middle/neck)..

    Looking to make a coil split on the bridge pup and add an option to combine it with the neck pup at the flick of a switch.

    Been researching this hard but haven't been able to find a diagram that covers this with a 3 way switch. Purchased the Fender Mustang/Jaguar style 3-way slider switch and think it to be a neat option for this desired setup, instead of the usual push-pull option. Thinking maybe the 3 positions would be (1) All normal, full humbucker (2) Split coil humbucker (3) Full bridge & neck together.

    With the 500k volume pot I have got a 470k resistor to put in the circuit for the single coils so probably have all the parts required for the build already..

    The humbucker and neck combo selector is with the full humbucker and neck for the biggest possible sound I could get from the guitar, like a HH setup with both pups on.. Looking to change out the single in the neck in the near future for something like a JB Jr or lil '59 hence the interest in pairing this with the bridge.

    Hope someone can help..
