Modding my 5 way to a 3 way

I'm sure someone has tried this. I have an RG HSH and I'm taking out the center pickup to use in another guitar and I was wondering how the 5 way will react to having no middle pup wired in. Does anyone know if I can tweak the switch to use it like a 3 way.

if your going to all that trouble, why don't just buy a 3 way switch and install it?

You could wire it up as a 3-way, although you'd have 2 positions on the switch with total silence. Could be useful mind for a quick killswitch...

Otherwise you're best getting a 3-way in replacement.
