    I'm trying to find a three way rotary toggle for pickup selection: neck, both, bridge. I can find four way switches but haven't been able to find a three way. Any help would be much appreciated!

    You may be struggling because of your search terms. "Rotary" and "toggle" are two different types of switch.

    Here's a 3-way rotary. You'll only need 2 of the 4 poles for simple 2-pickup passive switching. I'd also check that it's a "make before break" switch for the quietest operation.
