Push/Pull Pot switch - pickup switching

Is it possible to use a push/pull pot as a seperate on/off switch for the middle pickup on rg's *and the like? [rg685 maybe ] and to get a seperate Double Edge? The damn thing is only availabel on mahagony guitars.

In the end i would like to have a 5-way slider switch [bridge, bridge+neck, neck, neck+piezo, piezo] a pot as a coil-tap and the other pot as an on/off switch for the middle p/u.

Is this possible?

About the push/pull pot, sure! *you can get whatever wiring you want to your imaginations delight. *About the Double Edge trem all by itself, I would bet against it. *If Ibanez did decide to start selling the whole thing as a replacement part, it would cost an arm and a leg and an ear and an eye.

Push/Pull Pot switch

how would you do a wiring job like that? I'm thinking about doing something like that. doing a single coil tap and having a push-pull pot to have the bridge and neck working at the same time, and also a kill switch.
