Re: Switch mod.

You probably don't need a new switch. Both of those can be done with the same switch. The first one just doesn't have the coil taps soldered to other side of the switch.

Re: Switch mod.

What are you expecting the new 2 and 4 positions to sound like? If you just want a single coil sound for cleans and whatnot, I suggest you don't split. Just put the bridge and neck humbuckers into parallel. You'll get a great spanky singlecoil-esque sound, without the massive decrease in output you get from splitting, which to my ears always makes things sound horrible.
