    You get the 5 standard settings from your switch when the push/pull pot is in the down position, but in the UP position, the humbuckers are tapped to single coils. Giving you 3 additional settings (position 1, 2 and 4 are identical)

    So, here are the standard positions with push/pull in the Down position:
    ■Position 1: Bridge humbucker
    ■Position 2: Bridge humbucker with neck singlecoil, in parallel
    ■Position 3: Bridge and neck humbuckers
    ■Position 4: Neck singlecoil with bridge singlecoil, in parallel
    ■Position 5: Neck humbucker

    And this is what you could get with the push/pull in the UP position:
    Position 1: Bridge Single coil (coil closest to neck)
    ■Position 2: Bridge Singlecoil (coil closest to the neck)
    ■Position 3: Bridge and neck single coils (coils closest to the neck)
    ■Position 4: Bridge singlecoil (coil closest to the neck)
    ■Position 5: Neck Singlecoil (coil closest to the neck)

    This mod will add another chapter to an already versatile instrument. The price is $125 plus shipping
    If you're interested, please complete the form found here: and we can get the process going.
    sure it's very interesting mod with a decent price. a very good deal. thanks fro sharing

    Unfortunately the 5 way rotary switch (PC board variety) has pre-set positions that cannot be changed.

    Shawn, what would the extra sounds be like on an older Custom with 5 way rotary? My 95 Custom has the PC board variety.

    I did put in a coil tap(Neck PU) into something like this years back and the only useful sound I got was the Neck Single Coil...
