5 Way Switch Ibanez Stock

Hi, all.

I want to ask if it is possible to have this config for an H-H config:

1 - Bridge series
2 - Bridge Parallel
3 - Bridge and Neck
4 - Neck Parallel
5 - Neck series

Is this possible for a stock Ibanez 5-way switch? Currently the config is much like Paul Gilbert's PGM401:

1 - Bridge series
2 - Bridge inner coil + Neck outer coil
3 - Bridge and Neck
4 - Neck Parallel
5 - Neck series

I did not like the volume loss of the bridge inner coil + neck outer coil and I found it unusable on cleans and distorted tones. Will parallel-ing the bridge pickup be usable and will I be able to get that "quack" and chime will still maintaining humbucker power?

The standard fender style 5 way that most HSH Ibanez guitars use won't work. You need a 3PS1SC5 switch as found in most HH Ibanez guitars.

Ah, sorry. You'll have the switch I mentioned. I'm not sure if the config you want is possible. You may need a mega switch or something similar. They are insanely complex, but can do pretty much anything.

Re: 5 Way Switch Ibanez Stock

thanks!

I'm thinking of converting to a 3-way switch, but with the tone and volume pots as push-pulls (volume push pull for bridge and tone push pull for neck). Will that give me the versatility? Or will replacing the tone pot with a 2-way toggle switch do?
