On-off-on

Ok... I have a Strat with 3 mini-toggles. The Neck and middle one are not a problem, but I need some help with the one for the bridge. I currently have a two position DPDT switch (six solder lugs on the back) acting as on/off. I purchased an on/off/on switch that I want to use as middle off, down series, up parallel or split. I've come up blank on the net, so I'm hoping someone here can help (frankfalbo? Rich? Anyone?)

Much thanks!

You can use any wiring diagram for a series or parallel switching. The middle setting will not connect anything so will act as an off position.

A B
C D
E F

Lets say that's your switch. What you need to do is connect lug A to the hot lead of coil 1, and use it as the hot output of the switch. Lug B connects to the end of coil 2 (the ground) and also connects to your pot ground. Lug D Is the start of coil 2 and D is the end of coil 1. Lugs E and F need to be joined with a bit of wire or something. If you want coil tapping AS WELL you can run a wire of the E and F connection that runs to ground through a capacitor and resistor if you want a tuned tap.)

Hope this helps.
