After researching wiring information on the web until about about 1:00 am this morning, I have decided and ordered. In order to achieve this wiring configuration (pdf), I need a 5-way "Superswitch" (pictured left). Not a "Megaswitch" or any other kind of switch, a "Superswitch."
To quote from the Stewart-MacDonald web site:
"Unlike standard 2-pole lever switches, this 4-pole switch has 24 solder lugs, which allows for virtually limitless wiring options."
And because my middle pickup is the 4 conductor type (pdf), this switch is what I need to make the whole thing come together.
The best price I could find on a Superswitch was at GuitarElectronics.com for $17.95, which is a couple of bucks cheaper than anyone else, and it is Fender OEM.
Sheeeesh! And to think that before I ever started this project I had never even heard of a "Superswitch!"
