    Is it possible to have a 3 way switch to determine which pickups are affected by the blend knob? The switch would select 2 of the three pickups which would then be blended between each other.

    Position 1 the blend knob controls Neck+Mid
    Position 2 controls Mid and Bridge
    Position 3 controls Neck and Bridge.

    This way all combinations are available as well as all solo. Well, I can't use all 3 pickups at once but how often does that sound good...

    I am assuming this is possible. I always wondered how people used more than 2 pickups with a Blend knob.
  2. You will need a DP3T switch.

    In you are going to use a mini toggle switch, this will take the form of a 4PDT On/On/On switch, but the switching pattern will be configured by external jumpering.
